I read the following under the thread pinned you do not have permission in the introductions forum:

"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."

However, I get the “you do not have permission” message in the Personal Concerns forum?

Is Introductions the only forum where newbies can post until after the 40 replies?

I have replied to a few threads ... so far ... though not even close to 40 yet ...

biggrin.gif Greetings ... and 恭喜发财 Happy Chinese New Year!

Following is a link to an excellent English/Chinese character dictionary ... if you click on the pronunciation link following the character it will open up your Windows Media program and say the word for you. An excellent tool for learning proper pronunciation...


This is one of my favorite Mandarin Chinese language websites ... I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

A gift ... enjoy!

Chinese philosophy ... (and a daily televised program in Hong Kong & China) ... "Language Learned = Friends Earned" ... a "very" good program ... wish we had it in the US!

My wife is Chinese ... she says it will take me 7 years to learn Chinese ... I think she's wrong ... I think it's going to take the rest of my life! LOL! However, fortunately our son’s take after their Mother and are much smarter than me… and better looking too… thank God! They … hopefully … will someday be as fluent as their 妈妈 (ma’ma).

I read online that if a person can recognize 3000 Chinese characters he/she can read a Chinese news paper ok, to read one fluently one would need to be able to recognize 6000 characters. Considering there are over 15000 characters … I’ve always wondered … “How long it would take to sing a Chinese alphabet song?”

WOW! I might need this life and the next ...
