Once you register, you are considered a Guest. Guests can create a Profile and enjoy “some” of SGS’ Membership features. You are able to create a Profile, Search, View and read in the Activity Feed, Groups and Forums but you are not able to Message others until you are a Subscriber. You will then become a Premium member which gives you access to all the features available on SGS.
Guest memberships have no expiration date, but we highly encourage you to subscribe as a Premium member and get all the benefits SGS provides.
Each Member will receive Notifications via email and on SGS, of Messages, Mentions and anywhere you are referenced via your Username. This also occurs by using “@” before other Member’s Username as well.
This means that someone is trying to contact or Connect with you.
A Notification also occurs by means of a pop-up window on the left side when someone has visited your Profile or commented to something you said in a Group, Forum or in the Activity Feed.
They can also be accessed via the drop-down in the upper right corner…
Premium Members on SGS can Message each other. Guest members can receive messages from other Members but they cannot reply. To read and reply to the Message they have received on SGS, they would need to become a subscriber/Premium Member.
…you will see the option to “Cancel Your Membership” there…
…and your Profile will be permanently deleted.
(NOTICE!: If you have Messages, your Profile, pictures or anything on SGS you would like to keep, do so before deleting your Profile because it and all your Account content will be permanently lost and not retrievable!)
