    Good morning all,

    I have a friend who subscribed to the forums a few days ago, but is not allowed to post anything.

    How many days does he have to wait before posting is allowed ?

    Thanks

    PS: Originally this thread was in a different forum. But the forum team moved it to the general forum.

    It alerts one of the site mods to a post that they can answer directly. If you @ and then someone's forum name they get a notification

    You mean the DTG Staff is not reading these forums ? Or are you just impatient ? :)

    Not all posts on the site are directly aimed or easiest answered by the mods... this one seemed to be. I don't care much either way.

    It's possible your friend has missed a step with verification, an email may have been sent to their junk inbox after registering, so please ask them to double check.

    He says not. Just tried it myself and I can log-in with his password. But on each forum it states .....
