Hi Folks.

I registered with the forum a few days ago but despite this I find I cannot edit my User CP. I have emailed the webmaster etc. but no reply.
When I attempt to edit my CP I get a window up telling me the follows.

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

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?
If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation. "

You need ten posts to be able to edit your user details.

Yes Sweep is right. Here's what Jen-the-moderator said when I had the same problem:

(posted 7-5-2010 in the 'chat' forum):

Welcome to PressF1 BBCmicro.

We have put some restrictions on new members until they reach 10 posts. These restrictions are:
No access to the Private Message system
No custom signature
No profile detail edits including homepage

Once you have 10 posts, these options will open up for you (within one hour of hitting 10 posts).

New members are free to post straight away (as you can see), can upload a avatar, and change their custom title.

We do not have profile photos enabled on the forum.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Well, thanks for that information. It's a pity that my emails to both mods and webmaster did not elicit an answer which would have saved me a bit of angst, as I thought that I was doing something wrong. :)

I must get posting then!!

The mods both work full time elsewhere and only mod here in there own spare time, as for the webmaster who knows

I must get posting then!!Sorry you have had problems contacting someone for help. The only two Mods who work the boards are Chilling_Silence and myself - neither us has contact via email option enabled (which is why there is no email button beside our names).

I am assuming you must have emailed James or the 'pcworld' users. I will contact PCWorld and see what is happening with the email queries.

I was born just down the motorway, M20 at Ashford and spent time working around the boroughs occasionally when the building was a bit tight further down in Kent

What a small world, isn't it? I was born in Bromley and have lived there since and my God you wouldn't believe how it has changed (for the worse, unfortunately).

Have to claim ignorance here. I was only aware of someone called H.G.Wells. Didn't know the others came from Bromley!
