    sufficient privileges ????

    The site won't let me access certain areas and I am finding the whole process FRUSTRATING!
    I'm new to forums, if I cannot work this site out I'll have to retire from it altogether
    I want to enjoy the site BUt I cannot get onto the comp site not "sufficient privileges", how do I earn them?????

    You earn them by being an active member. Once you start posting to the site, more of it opens up to you, but if you do not remain active on the forums (regular participation) then the site locks itself down again. A forum is a place to JOIN IN, and this site is set-up so that those that do, get to benefit from access to more.

    Did you take the time to read THIS, which was sent to you when you joined? If not, do so, cause it will tell you how the site works

    If you don't like that, just reply, and I will close your account, easy!

    Yes it does get frustrating, but you will get passed it.
    Check out the forum rules on the link bar under the header logo.
    There is lots to read & learn in the library & sharing pix can be fun.

    All you have to do is to make a post or two in the forums that count towards your post count and after an hour or so the rest of the site opens up to you.
