Icons related to User Account
- Administration Icon
This picture denotes that the user is an Administrator of the Database. Administrator can access
your personal information, validate or discard your updates/submissions, freeze or delete accounts, etc.
There's currently only one administrator (admin (390)) but the system is designed
to allow more than one Administrator to interact with the Databases.
- Collection Icon
The Collection function can be used to compile and list all your titles for private purpose.
But you might also want to add a "My Laserdisc Collection" link in your signature on forums
or mailing-lists. If you decide to make your Collection public, then all other users
will be informed that they can freely have a look at what's on your shelves. When you decide
to make your Collection public, this picture will be displayed next to your username.
- New User
To identify people who recently registered on LDDb.com, this movie clap picture shows a new "start" for one month
after you created your account. This icon will no be displayed anymore when you decide to update your username
or your Email, see the following "Account updated" icon. This was the case before.
- Account updated
When a User modifies the Address or the Phone Number provided during account creation, nothing will show
on the Username displayed. However in case of updating the Email address or the username itself, this picture
will be appended during 1 months.
- "About Me"
In addition to making your Collection public, you might be interested in telling other users a bit more about yourself.
When you setup your "About" page (maximum 5KB of HTML), this "Look at me" picture will be displayed next to your username.
I have to acknowledge that this is one of the icons designed for the MagicWB Theme on Amiga, years ago.
- User Shop
A Username with this icon means that it's a Seller, that a Shop has been created and opened for you to browse
and find good deals!
- Feedback Level
To allow you to quickly identity regular sellers who performed several successful transactions leading
to a positive feedback, the following precious stones/metals icons will correspond to:
- None: 0 to 9
- Amethyst: 10 to 19
- Topaz: from 20 to 49
- Emerald: from 50 to 99
- Sapphire: 100 to 199
- Ruby: 200 to 499
- Diamond: from 500 to 999
- Silver: from 1,000 to 1,499
- Double Silver: from 1,500 to 1,999
- Gold: from 2,000 to 2,999
- Double Gold: from 3,000 to 3,999
- Triple Gold: from 4,000 to 4,999
- Platinum: from 5,000
- Email Invalid
If I detect that the Email used to register your account is boucing (removed, overquota, etc.),
your account will become "invalid" until the next probe. Not that invalid account are directly
deleted when they reach 300 days of zero activity. Sending the "freeze" Email notification would
make no sense since it would never reach the account's owner.
- Account Frozen
If your account has been unused for more than 365 days, it will first be "frozen" while I'm trying
to contact you to check if you want to keep this account active of not. After a few days/weeks in a
frozen stats, it will be deleted.
- Account Deleted
I need to keep an accurate list of Users to know who is participating and who just create an account and
never came back. Therefore when an account has not been used for more than 365 days, I will "freeze" it and try
to contact you to know if you would like to delete your account. Or, when the Email address you provided is wrong,
I will first "invalidate" your account and wait to see some activity. If none is detected, I will also delete your account.
However, deleted does not mean killed and your Collection and Wishlist will be saved
in a separate backup file before their deletion from the Database. If by any chance you would come back and
reactivate this account, it would still be possible to restore everything.
