someone need to back up....
also clear your cookies - reload the page
if you get the 30 seconds when posting back up or hit preview and see if your post is already there, then hit the top to get out.
There are server problems that need fixing.

I'm guessing the administrators turned off the new thread ability for users under a certain post count because of all the spam in here lately, and since I mostly lurk, I'm below the cut-off too. If that's the case, I'll live with it. Otherwise, its a little weird.
Many Ze. forums are under some kind of lockdown/lockout conditions. Probably due to flaming or spaming. One would assume you could work around the one you are experiencing in here by apologizing for being off-topic and having a mentor give you your thread.

Meh. Like I said, I'm not too worried about it. And I wasn't actually going to post a new thread anyway. Just something unusual going on that I thought I'd ask about.

Ze's cat hates birds...that's your problem Peregrine. Perhaps if you post some piccys of dead pigeons that you stooped (dove) on at speeds exceeding 200 MPH, you might get forgiven for your screen name.

Too bad I'm not an actual bird, and just a guy hiding behind a screen name.

On the other hand, there's usually some road-kill on the through-way on the way to work in the mornings. I'm pretty sure most of them used to be pigeons. and they were probably hit by something going at least 100kph...
Maybe some pictures of that then?

No, that's just gross.

OK, I've seen a couple new accounts registered today, which proceeded to post spam threads. So apparently spammers can do something that I can't.

Also, I can't send or receive private messages, or set an avatar. I'd just assumed that it was because of post count or something like that, but now I'm not so sure.

I wonder if my account wasn't fully activated way back when I signed up. I got the confirmation e-mail, and followed instructions, and all that, but never heard back from anybody. I was able to sign in, so I just figured that I was good to go.

What gives?

European, I'd imagine. Unless there's some kind of indigenous North American pigeon I'm not aware of.

How do you know so much about pigeons?

Hey Peregrine

I just tried to private message you and it says this:

"Peregrine has chosen not to receive private messages or may not be allowed to receive private messages. Therefore you may not send your message to him/her."

maybe you need to reset your private settings to allow pm's and the like ?
otherwise just pm Ze or Frieda


And if all else fails, just start a new account

I don't see any place in the control panel to turn private messages on. And it doesn't seem like something I'd typically turn off.

I can turn PMs on or off in The Show forum, but not here. And it's pretty much the same software.

peregrine is still "user awaiting email confirmation"

i'll let ze know. i have no idea why the spammers can spam and you can't create threads. is this restricted to a single subforum? or the whole thing?

Thanks. It looks like I can't start threads in any subforum.

not sure - you're configuration is normal.
