    Significantly less subtle, and case closed.

    Why are you all so sure the Avatar looked at you? Maybe it's in an alternate universe and sees something else, and so we are looking at it, but it is looking somewhere else. Just saying.

    Isnt it weird that most of the negative posts are from people who dont actually have a model x? Its so easy to tell trolls from real owners.

    Funny!

    First off, people here have negative opinions of the new Bolt, or the Mirai or a number of other cars and don't own them, and that is not weird at all.

    Second, I find it weird that people can actually tell what a person has or had in their garage just based on a post. Amazing!

    I have always maintained that this is my actual photo. I plan to attend Connect this year, and attendees can confirm.

    The reason we have limited permissions on new accounts is to prevent spammers (such as this account) from being able to use the use the avatar and signature to advertise. Busted.

    Cannot you just limit first posts until someone has looked? I proof read all first posts on several groups that I host and it is obnoxious for new users just once and then they are members, while those who post crap just never see their posts. #5

    If people are going to post pics of their ads, why not just post text and links to their ads, there is no prohibition agains that? #6

    Half way there

    For this there is no information for users that are actually trying to use the forum correctly and the only option is to get help. The interface should be changed so the option is there but when you select it the message comes up explaining "option limited for new users". This way we would go back to using the board and patiently wait for a status other than new. #7

    Thanks. BTW - There should be a welcome page for new members who have been visiting, but not contributing.

    Thanks for the information. Interesting that they limit newbies to creation of an avatar. If you own a TESLA it should be immediate. Perhaps if you place your VIN in the profile it should open up access to the avatar and signature.

    Possibly there will be more spam with this policy? I now need to make up 12 spam posts to add a photo to my profile..
