Help logging in!
My friend Peter (his nickname here is "timber crawler") has a problem with the forum. He can log-in and his nickname appears in the "Whoīs online" list. But when he clicks on the "Post Reply" button he gets the following message:
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.
He can edit his settings and the signature, but the changes donīt appear in his posts. He also canīt see the "post quick reply" window at the bottom.
Does he do something wrong? Is his account disabled?
Thanks for your help.

i think i had the same problem when i first signed up. i think an admin had to verify my account before i could continue to post. also there are certain sections of the forum that you cannot post in until you have the minimum number of posts. if he is trying to post in the wanted to buy or for sale section he needs to have a minimum of 15 posts

He signed up more than one year ago and wasnīt here since then. Perhaps this is the problem..

that could be the problem. try to find an admin or a moderator and pm them. they should be able to help, or at least point you in the right direction. try tinyterror or scout. i know tiny is on right now.
It says that his account is awaiting email confirmation. Ask him if he's gotten an email from WF stating he needs to click a specific link in it to confirm the email is active. If not we'll get in touch with an admin to straighten this out. No worries, Nico.

That was more than one year ago. I donīt think that he still has this e-mail.
His English isnīt the best (he didnīt learn in in school) but his grandpa was born in the US. In US forums he only reads (with the stupid google translator) and looks for pictures.
Could you please contact an admin to fix that problem? ;)

Yeah, I saw he signed up in October of last year. Must have been his inactivity. I'll email Janet.

OK - his account is now fully activated and he should be able to log in. If not, he can use the contact us link at the bottom of the page to get tech support (useful for locked accounts, password resets, etc). If he has any more trouble... it was tinys fault ;)
