    Default New Members' Problems Starting Threads

    So I got a PM from a very-clearly-not-spam new member asking about clubs, who said he'd tried to post a question in the forums but was denied and got this message...

    you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:

    1. Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
    2. If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.


    I've also noticed a significant slowdown in the number of new threads being posted. This guy took the time to PM me about it, but I'm guessing most people would not. I hate spam as much as the next guy, but if there's some sort of restriction to people starting threads might we consider lifting it if it's keeping legit visitors from being able to take advantage of what we have here?

    Just a thought.

    Matt, thanks for posting this bug on their behalf. It looks like some of the user group permissions may have been changed. I've asked Andrey to check it out and troubleshoot what's going on. Andrey works fast and we should have an answer back tomorrow.

    I'll update this thread when I here more.

    Can you tell us the member name of the guy who contacted you?

    Matt, It appears Mr. Hiphopopotamus registered for an account, but did not click the activation link that was sent in the email confirmation. In case he did not see the confirmation, I resent the email with the activation link. If he clicks the link to confirm the account, he should have no problem posting.

    Coincidentally, the night before Matt started this thread, I happened to watch the Flight of the Concords special on HBO. The show ends with an fierce rap battle between The Hiphopopotamus vs. Rhymenoceros. If you're a fan of New Zealand gangsta rap, check it out...

    I'm glad this thread existed! I got a similar PM from someone and gave them the advice to verify their account and it worked! Thanks Gus, you wise owl.
