    I would like to ask why I as a new member cannot post or reply to some topics
    forum stated:

    (You have insufficient privileges to reply here.)

    Why is that ?
    Or is that because i am new member?
    thanks

    May be because you are trying to reply to a thread that is old, closed and only moderators have the privilege.
    Not 100% sure though.

    That sounds like the likely reason. If you can link to a thread you're having problems with and I'll find out why :).

    hello admin
    it is not something very important but for example
    topics under Twilight Zone called "Led magnetics" or omething like that i cannot reply
    for example ,is this topic locked?
    i don't see any icon that is locked or maybe i am wrong.
    all best!

    yes, almost all those threads in that section are locked .... they are basically just a store of the posts of seriously misinformed people


    that below is your indication that the thread is locked and cannot be answered to

    But even before you enter a specific thread, when you are just in the section
    you will see the locked icons down near the right side, that you obviously missed seeing ;)

    and once in a thread and before you try and post, you will see yet another indicator that you cannot post there ( you must have missed seeing that one too ;) ......

    See the comment just below the thread title and the WooWoo tag ?

    Thread Status: Not open for further replies


    Pretty much all threads are locked ... are few are not ( usually the less idiotic ones)
