As I'm sure you've noticed by the colors and statuses of various members, Mobilism has many different types of users. This sticky will outline the different usergroups of the forum, as well as well as the requirements for joining each of them. Please note however that fulfilling all requirements mentioned for joining a usergroup does not guarantee or entitle you to immediate acceptance.
