Zona Premium / Premium Segment: Rules regarding attachments_thumbnails download in XXL format

La inceput acest forum a fost complet "liber": oricine putea sa descarce oricite attachments; singura conditie era sa te inregistrezi. Deoarece insa:
- au fost multe cazuri in care dupa inregistrare noii utilizatori au descarcat > 200 attachments - unii au descarcat > 300 / 500 (!?) - fara nici o contributie la acest forum;
- aceste imagini sint rezultatul unui efort major si colectiv (financiar si munca) - si nu este corect fata de cei care au facut posibil sa apara aceste imagini aici;

am fost obligat sa introduc diferite access_levels, dupa cum urmeaza:

- access_level_1: utilizator nou, inca fara nici o contributie pe forum: poate primi imagini la cerere (via PM sau comentar pe thread-ul respectiv);
- access_level_2: utilizator nou, care insa nu a contribuit mult pe forum: are un acces general pe majoritatea threads, cu posibilitatea de DL (exceptii: Marinele, SIP, DBSR, si citeva altele)
- access_level_3: utilizator deosebit, care a contribuit cu material deosebit pe forum: acces general, inclusiv topicurile navale (Utilizator Premium)
- access_level_4: moderatori: pot modera unul sau mai multe topicuri (acces general, poate modifica / sterge / ban user / etc.)
- access_level_5: admin

Nota: toate imaginile exista de asemenea in database a forum-ului la o rezolutie mult mai mare. Se pot trimite - la cerere - si la schimb cu material similar.

At the beginning all the attachments were free for download; the only requirement was to register yourself. But because:
- there were many new users who downloaded immediately a lot of attachments - more than 200 / 300 / even 500 (!?) - without any contribution at all to this forum;
- all these images are the result of a huge effort on our side (financial and otherwise), to be able to offer them online here;

it was necessary to implement different access_levels, as follows:

- access_level_1: new user, without any contribution here at all: you could ask for and get images via PM (the request: via PM or comment on the respective thread);
- access_level_2: new user, who has not yet contributed much here: has general access & can DL on most threads (with the exception of Navies, SIP, DBSR, and a few others);
- access_level_3: special user, who contributed a lot here: has general access & can DL on all threads, including the above exceptions (Premium User)
- access_level_4: moderators: they can moderate one or more threads (general access, can modify/delete thread / ban user / etc.)
- access_level_5: admin

Note: all images exist in our database also in a (much) higher resolution. They could be sent on request in exchange for similar material.
