Permission to post messages: an IQ-test?

Post by questionmark » Mon Mar 26, 2018 8:51 am

Can I count myself now to the illustrious set of people, who passed the test?

It is no wonder, that people, which registered after 2017-11-30, haven't posted anything. Most people won't invest time to solve this issue.

For anyone else:

Click on your nick (in my case "questionmark") on the right top of this page below the search field, then on "User Control Panel", there on "Usergroups", select "Self confirmed users" and press "Submit".

It's intended to be an antispam mechanism (before we added that step, we were getting spambombed on a daily basis, and most spambots don't ever attempt to add themselves to user groups). Unfortunately, it sounds like it's causing confusion for more than just spambots.

Between the date of a forum upgrade sometime last year, and March 23, 2018, the notice at the top of the forum was gone, which indeed made it very difficult to figure out what to do. Admittedly the notice at the top of the forum right now is a bit vague... would it be helpful if I copied your more explicit instructions into the notice?
