  1. I came here in search of some info.
    I wound up in this thread about "Adding newer drives to Windows XP and 8
    Someone talked about UBCD4WIn about which I know something so I tried to make a contribution. Why did I bother?.
    So I have to register - fair enough
    Then the confirmation email gets lost in spam. Eventually I find it
    So I paste the URL into a browser and get told its OK and return to the thread.
    Click Post new reply - and nothing happens.
    Reading more carefully I find some 6 pt at the bottom that says (Posting here requires special permissions. Check out the forum FAQ for more information.)

    But can I find any FAQ anywhere. No chance.
    so here for a quick rant and off to do something useful elsewhere

    Admin - you have to make this easier. everyone else does

    As I understand, the Virus Removal forum requires permissions but all else is open to registered users.

    The only time I've seen " (Posting here requires special permissions" is when I've been in the Virus/Malware section which I understand it to mean only helpers can reply/help.
    I also agree with jobead. If you started the thread, you should be able to reply.
