      Hello guys,

      A friend referred me to the site and I really like it especially the layout.

      I play Mostly tournament with the occasional cash game.

      To be perfectly honest, I am a winning player who is looking to play bigger games and is hoping to make connections and build trust and work with a few people and succeed together.

      I would like to know what I need to do to gain the trust of the community and build a good reputation.
      Am I Allowed to participate in the staking forum as a new member?

      thx

      Hi amanofhisword,
      Welcome to PokerStrategy.com !

      I'm glad you found us!

      If you are looking to play bigger games, and you are already a winning player at your current limits, then you've come to the right place.

      If you follow sound bankroll management, you should have no problems moving up.

      To "gain the trust of the community" is easy.
      All you need to do is be a positive contributing member of it!.

      I would suggest that the first step is to become a bronze member by passing the quiz
      You can also skip the quiz and sign up with one of the poker rooms

      There is no length-of-time restriction for participating in staking.
      If you read the staking rules you will see that you do need a minimum number of posts in the English community forums.

      These posts can be hand evaluation requests or by posting questions or comments in any of the hundreds of currently active threads -- or starting your own.

      So dive right in!

      Great to have you aboard,

      Hey amanofhisword,

      Welcome to the English Pokerstragy.com Community.

      To quote a person, all you have to do is:

      Click the red quote button which is located on the post you wish to quote, it will automatically quote that content and send you to the reply area.

      Or you can use [quote?] [/quote?]
      ^^just take out the question marks haha

      Regarding your quiz, Pokerstrategy may ask for an ID check so check your emails reguraly to see if you have a request from us. It may take a couple of days for your basic status to turn to bronze, maybe a few more days if its over the weekend.

      Regards,

      Kyle.

      Hello Kyle,

      thank you for the explanation. But if I want to quote only certain part(s) of the message, do I simply erase the rest?

      Yeah just delete the parts in the message you don't want.

      The website will automatically quote if you you use those two [/] and [] parts at the start and end.
