2012 Forum Error: Error Returned Was: You Are Not Allowed To Use This Part Of The Board

6 posts in this topic

Hello,

Now that it is 2012, I noticed that on the forums here I can not longer change my profile information, about me, avatar, personal photo, et cetera; I get this error message:

"Error returned was: You are not allowed to use this part of the board"

Does anyone know what is going on or how to fix it?

Thank you,

-John Jr :)

Hi John :)

That is a an Antispam method that I recently implemented.

Basically, if you have under 20 posts, you can not change those elements in your profile. In this way, spammers can not put websites in profile and in the signature.

I have made some adjustments for your account.

Let me know if everything is OK now.

Take care.

Oh, I hate that method & I would rather use CAPTCHA or something, but if it works well then we can adjust; the Avast Forum uses that method too.

Thank you for making those adjustments, it worked, and thank you for responding Christian. :)

I also noticed that my threads from last year do not seem to be showing in my profile, but maybe I am over-looking them. ;)
