You simply be an active member of the forum. Once the mods see you around and decide that you're trustworthy, they'll let you in. It usually takes a few days but it's not difficult. I'm pretty sure the forum rules go into more detail on that process.

How do I become an active member? (Sorry if these questions are annoying I’m just curios srry!)

No worries! I'm happy to clarify.

All you need to do is participate in the forum. Post in threads, contribute to discussions, etc. As you get more active you get more permissions like private messages, access to restricted sections like the Teens Only board, etc.

It doesn't take long at all just making proper contributions to the forum, just long enough for the admins to see you're a genuine person.

There are parts of the site that you can't get to yet.  Teen section, picture galleries,, messaging are all things you gain access to over time.  you do this thru being active on the website by posting your opinions  and thoughts on topics that interest you.  This is done so the mods can see your serious about the nudist lifestyle and not just some lookie-loo. @NakedAndFree

@NakedAndFree Since you basically already asked this question went ahead and merged them. Same answers still.

Mainly just revolves around patience. Time and post. Let others see you active and get to know you.

It seems that there should be at least 50 posts? In this case, our friend is already at the finish line.

It’s not just about post. He’s also only been here for about 5 days.

It’s a combination of post and time.

What is the teens only section?

Teens only section is a place for members 22 and under to have their own space within the forums. It’s good because it gives an easy place for younger members to find people that are able to relate to their own life experiences so far.

Nope, cutoff is 23. As an easy example, I’m 22, and I’m still a member. Later this year though, I’ll be gone from there.

Reason the cutoff is a little past the teens is something I’m not entirely sure about. If I had to guess, 22 is around when most people (at least in the US) graduate college, so it leaves a bit of leeway for the people on the older end (20-22) to share advice with the teens while still being somewhat close to their age and life experiences.

it should be 19 and under and anyone over about 35 ought to gracefully leave IYNO and move to other nudist websites.  but hey what do I know. :confused

The way it was told to me when I first became a mod it was “time to separate.” Even though I personally feel the cut off one should be 21.

That being said, yah 14-19 to get in. 20-22 wont be able to join new as that’s the parting years.

Now if all the middle age ppl would just go gracefully to more age appropriate websites this would truly be a youth forum again.

Very few active people here that are over the age. Most are within the age. Most active are definitely the younger ones.

No, there's more to take from it then just 50 post. People would be padding their post like crazy if that was just the only rule. Like for example, in your introduction you have 10-11 post alone just as replies. If you have a topic where you are replying to multiple people, it should properly be one reply. For example:

Quote person A:
Blah blah blah

Quote person B:
Blah blah blah

Quote person C:
Blah blah blah

That's just an example of course. We can understand time between post, but right off the bat that would appear as padding.

What's also taken into account is actual time here. You've been here less then a month and the community needs time to get to know you.

Lastly, and one of the teen specific mods or another mod can say differently, but you are the older side of the teen area. Most of them entering the teen section are 14-17. 18 and above from new members are generally considered already aged out as their teen years are pretty much done, like when you turn 20 in less then a year.

The teen section is pretty much invite-only, and those invitations are not given by any strict metric of time or post count. They all factor in, of course, but at the end of the day, what matters is the impression that people here know what kind of person someone is. If you just spend all the time lurking and telling very little about yourself, that is going to take a lot longer than if the topics you post in are those that reveal what makes you tick.

Now if all the middle age ppl would just go gracefully to more age appropriate websites this would truly be a youth forum again.

Our target age range is 14-40. Yeah, 40 is a bit high for a youth community, but many INF-affiliated organizations have their youth range go well into someone's mid- or late 30s, so the people here are still young by naturist standards.

When you do have enough posts or time spent here, not sure, who do you contact to join the teen section?
I want to talk more to people around my age.

Post by: timnudist on July 09, 2020, 03:00:16 pm
@InterestedNudist  there is no set number of posts.. its more based on how active you are.  If it was just a post count a person can run that up just saying hi to people and not really commenting on a wide number of subjects.  So far it seems your on track though   :cool:

Ok thats great. I like that there is these kind of restrictions in place. Otherwise any weirdo could be looking at pictures of naked teenagers just by saying hi to 50 people! That would be rather discomforting.

It's the kind of restrictions that are put in place to make this a safe and happy community for young naturists such as yourself  :azn:

As what was stated by Delta and myself as well, there is no exact range of post or time here (you've also only been here less then a week) but they do factor into it.

You don't contact anyone. In fact, most people that constantly ask usually take longer to get access then others. Mods will notice your level of activity and that you've established a presence and will automatically give it to you. If I give you access, for example, then I always follow it up with a message to you as well letting you know.

Alright. Thanks for the answer. I will continue to stay active here, and I won't ask again.
