I understand your frustrations though. Fluffies can usually be avoided, just ignore them or block them if they keep sending you messages. Same goes for the people who try to flirt with you. Most of us know this is a site for learning, not for flirting, but many others simply do not care. There's really nothing that can be done about that.
As for being ranked, that's something that usually takes time (but I'm no expert on the ranking system).
Sometimes people feel that this site just isn't for them, and that's okay. Do what you feel is best for you.
I totally understand how you feel but don't Stay down. :)
For covens kicking you out,
well, maybe they kicked you out because you have not been active enough or maybe they found your posts irreverent or against their view? You can always PM them and ask them for the reason.
Helping newbie to the right path is good and you should carry that on. See ranking may takes time, some knowledgeable folks got their ranking after about 4years of being a member! Just chill and be active on the forums and live chat.
And for fluffy bunny people,
yeah, they can be really annoying. But they are just kids! They couldn't become a vampire and so they are Pretending to be a vampire. Just try give them a little light, if they still can't see the right path, then just block them.
It's very easy to deal with flirters, just block them with no words at all.
Or I have a better idea -
just change your profile picture into something ugly ;)
Lily, dear you know I care about you immensely and I'd hate to see you go. All websites you join eventually all have these problems. Its just one of the crappy facts about the internet and dealing with people on there. I have had my fair share of issues with the site, just like any other and I'm still here 3 Accts (well 2 because I forgot my password to my last one... I cried). You just can't sweat the small stuff like fluffies and I think we all get pervs. Half the time they are lonely 13 to even 40 year olds with nothing better to do.
Wow,You joined at age 11?Impressive kiddo I was playing ring and run at 11 and other kids games
This would have went so far over my head
Even at Age 15 as your profile says I was writting on Walls
And hang in street corners
I must admit when I first joined you were one of the first greeting handles I seen,you seem to know your stuff
After four years someone should have ranked you,you are active and helpful
i've been on this site since 2005 [actually i found the site a few years before that but i had a phobia of chat-sites so i stayed away] i was on and off and i grew as a witch in that time. when i joined the site there was no ranking system! the only thing you had to rely on was the belief moderators knew what they were talking about. i wound up focusing on college and pretty much logged off all internet activity for a few years. when i came back a lot had changed and there was a ranking system. i didn't understand it so i ignored it and went back to what i enjoyed doing [answering questions on the forums, posting spells and articles, organizing forums of the covens i was council in] one day i got ranked and i thought 'thats neat' and moved on.
trust me, it's no big deal. the only people i ever hear upset about rank is those who don't have one. no one puts any weight on the rank. just do what you do and be confident in what you know. but if you choose to leave the site no one can stop you. i suggest not deleting you account in case you choose to return one day. good luck to you.
I came to this site with nearly 30 years of experience, yet I was here for nearly five years before I received a ranking. And you know what...it never bothered me. I wasn't out to get a ranking. I was here to enjoy myself, help others, and learn a thing or two myself. I could do all of that without a rank. Rankings mean very little here. Don't chase it and perhaps it will find you.
As to an old profile in 2011, if there is nothing to link your current profile to your old one then no one has any idea as to how long you've been here. So what was done when you were posting under that profile has no impact on what you do today.
Joined at age 11 did you? You do realize that you broke the rules when you joined. Had you been caught you would never have been permitted on this site again.
