    It looks like I can post a reply, does this answer your question?

    Ernie Nemeth and agape have just kindly PMed me to say they can't post here. So (as is often the case ), the mods have no idea what's going on, just quite yet

    Edit to add: we think we may have fixed what was actually a bug. norman and edina shouldn't have been able to post. We'll ask them now if they can try to post again.

    I think we've got all our test information now. It was very helpful, those of you who posted and/or PMed me. We now have this under control. Very much appreciated!

    An explanatory note from Bill:

    Mike posted on this experimental thread immediately above just because we asked him to test something. If anyone else tries to post here, they'll get a rather stern auto-rebuke error message to the effect that they don't have permission. Don't be dismayed or hurt!

    hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh


    EDIT: Where's my auto rebuke message?
    When you are one step ahead of the crowd, you are a genius.
    Two steps ahead, and you are deemed a crackpot.

    Well, we're truly sorry you weren't rebuked! You should have been soundly scolded and put in your place.

    But I think it was because I moved the thread to a new section just before you replied, where the permissions are evidently different. (This is very geeky, but forum posting permissions are really hard for the best of us to (a) understand and (b) to get right.)

    We need to debug this, so I've just moved it back to where it was originally. Can you try replying again?? (And if you're unsuccessful, could you PM me?)
