    I keep getting this notice: Caranoche Beauty, to prevent data mining and spam from being posted on the forum we had to place a few restrictions on new user accounts. New members will need be moderated until they have made 2 approved posts. You will also not be able to send private messages (but you can reply to one sent to you), edit your profile/signature or view other member's profiles. After 2 posts have been approved by moderation these restrictions will be lifted and you will have full access the forum's features. Sorry for this small inconvenience." I am way past that 2 number on posts. And I wonder if Rye 83 is still punishing me. Is it just me or is this website so messed up that I am unable to retrieve alerts and when I do I am unable to go to the alerts. Many times I cannot even create a thread. It is like I am being clocked and misdirected on purpose. I wanted to contact Rye 83 to see but even that does not seem to be possible. Anyone else having these problems or is it just me?

    I am sure @Rye83 or another mod will soon sort this out for you.

    If I ever worked for a marketing company for eg. I imagine a ploy would be to join a forum of said city and ask about 15 times "does anyone know where I can buy or find"a certain product that recently came in or has been sitting on our shelves for some time. You may be a genuine member but you have posted (plugged) a certain marketing company that I believe retails most items you have asked about. I may be incorrect (not often) so take no offence. As a Mod of a forum, the approach and content can seem somewhat spammy...... maybe it's just me or perhaps Rye83 has picked up the same (spider sense) so to say, My suggestion if you are not cleared to post as a full fledged member within 48 hours........... tone down on salesmanship. Hope you know that it is your own questions that may be the root....... again, if I am out of line, carry on. Cheers!

    I have no idea who you are nor do I remember any of your previous posts or interacting with you in the past (should I?). Your account had a check mark next to the "New Member" usergroup box which explains your posts needing moderator approval. Why? No idea. I removed the check mark from the new user group so you should be good to go on future posts.

    Good luck with your future forum use. Try to send a PM to myself or another admin or moderator next time.
