Some of you might already have seen the message 'you do not have permission to write a topic in this forum' when you have tried to make a new thread. Here's why it's happening:

A little while ago there was an increasing problem on the forums where new members were posting topics that were either advertising, repeats of existing threads, or completely impossible to turn into a decent conversation. The number of these 'spam' threads got to the point where they were cluttering up the forums and making the place a lot less fun for regular members. For more info on what counts as 'spam' see this thread:


Anyway, a new rule has been put in place for recently-joined members that means that, until a they have posted 40 times in existing threads, they cannot create their own topics in the most popular forums. There are forums in which new members can immediately create their own threads, such as Introductions, Personal Concerns, and Creations, but others are restricted until you've joined in with more conversations and got to know the posting style better.

In other words, join in with other people's threads, make new friends, and you'll soon be able to start your own topics.
