|Once you've registered, you have full access to read the messages posted here. But, in order to MAKE a post, you'll need to do one more thing - Either
Select the Usergroups link at the top-right corner of the page, choose the "Regular User" option, and the "View Information" button, and finally, click the button/link to request that you be added to this usergroup or...
send a personal message to the site administrator, (loquin,) requesting that you be able to post messages. I can add your user name to the user group which has posting privileges. (The first option automatically causes the forum to send an email to me, requesting that I approve adding you to the group.)
Note - the personal message link is on top-right corner of any of the forum pages - between the Profile and the Log Out links. Or, you can just click the phrase 'personal message' in the paragraph above, or in this sentence...
We had been getting many automated registrations, just for the purpose of posting spam, or even worse, porn messages. In order to fix this problem, I've added the second step of adding new users to the regular user user group before they can post. (This assigns the user the proper privileges to make posts.) If I can customize the registration process in the future (by adding a custom question/answer) then the regular user posting group step might be able to be removed in the future.
Thanks for your understanding, and your patience.
