when John changed the forum format something caused my account to go into some kind of spam filter according to John which limited my ability to participate. currently I can start a thread and add to it without any problem but I cannot add to any thread I did not create myself. Further I cannot edit any post I have made.
This is obviously frustrating for me when I run across threads where the might of the pointy stick is called for but can only sit on a sideline and watch. Jetryder sees the diminuntion caused by my being sidlined and why he asked me to post under a new username. I did create a new account under the name "son of c.capn" but my posts have to be approved before they show and I quit trying to use that one and besides I want to post under the username you have all come to tolerate these many years rather than start anew so I have implored John over and over to fix my account and restore it back to full functionality. He told me it would be alot of work for him to fix the code and he was dubious that I might lash him if he did like I lashed out when the forum was changed a couple months ago however I told him I would only praise his efforts and laud him when he fixed my account.
With Jetyrder's PM to me yesterday, I decided that if enough members felt like him, they too might implore upon John to do what I hope he will and get me back in all the way rather than just part way.
