There are several roles in this site, each with different access permission. Below are roles with increasingly higher level of permission.
You browse our pages anonymously if you don't login to the site. All you can do is view pages that are publicly available.
Your account is unverified if you register to us but do not respond to the system email sent to your address upon registration. You can participate in the voting system but you have no permission yet to participate in any conversation. Verify your account within 2 days or the system will automatically delete your unverified account. You may register again if you wish to.
You can bypass this access level by logging in using your Facebook account.
There are two ways to become a verified user.
Login with your FB account. This is the easiest way, and instant upon login.
If you register to us not by your FB account, you will be assigned to Unverified user. Go to the email you used to register and look for the email from MATHalino. In that email., you are given an instruction with a one time login link to verify your account.
All verified users can participate in our discussion but all submitted contents and comments are moderated before publication.
Verified users are allowed to:
Participate in voting
Post a forum content
Comment to any content
Note however that comments and posts are queued for approval.
Trusted accounts are granted manually for now (this may change in the future). Participate in our Forums with your verified account, a moderator will notice your activity and will manually upgrade your account.
Though we don't have specific guideline on how to become a Trusted user, a sure way to become one is by active participation and following this general criterion:
You are interested in the topics of MATHalino with no intention of spamming the site.
Note that this site is highly moderated and it is in our discretion to whom we grant the Trusted account. You may get the Trusted badge immediately if you have personal contact with one of our admins, call their attention or you may use the Contact Form at the footer of this page.

VIP Learners are officially enrolled at MATHalino as a student to one of our Pro Mentors. This role is still at its early stage of development - not yet implemented. This may push through, or may not, only time can tell.
The access level of Mentors is similar to Trusted users with one little addition; a higher Text Format permitting more HTML tags.
We are very thankful that you are sharing your knowledge to other members, we know this badge is not enough but we hope you like it as a token of recognition.
Pro Mentors are users showing authority and with strong grip on any one or more subjects.
In addition to the access level of a Mentor, accounts with Pro Mentor badge had the following site privileges:
Publish blog post without moderation.
Create Quiz contents. If you need assistance in creating your Quiz contents, ask assistance from site Admin.
May accept tutorial payments from VIP Learners (at its early stage of development - not yet implemented)
Moderators are site police, they usually operate in stealth mode and don't participate in the discussion. Most of our moderators are family and friends of Jhun Vert, the founder of this site.
