Hi there,
Who are you trying to PM? The user could have a full inbox. Where are you trying to view pictures? Everything looks fine with your account.

You only got verified (it's all done manually) yesterday. You should have all permissions to message, view posts, post, etc. now.

I has identical issue, as I registered and for whatever reason it took about 10 days before I acquired full permissions to private message or view.pictures. I also posed in the aithentication thread. Very frustrating for new members as documentation does not state it will take this long to become fully active.

Super frustrating, I had the same issue too. Signed up for like a week and couldn't post anything. The saw a tank I wanted for a week and it ended up being sold before I could post anything.

I totally know the feeling - there was quite a bit that I wanted to post / look at etc. that I couldn't - until today.

Hi,

I took a look at your accounts and it seems like it was on hold waiting for approval by a mod.

It could have been a busy time for them so they were unable to get to it right away.

Just wondering, wouldn't a captcha be able to replace this approval thing? bots and spam bots cant do the captchas as far as I know

Technically yes, but it tends to be less reliable than having the mods scan the new registered members. Are there a large number of new members waiting a week + for approval?
