Can't post? Here's why and how to fix it
« on: January 29, 2018, 04:57:54 am »
First, you have to be logged in to the Forums in order to post which necessitates registering an account. Then you need to have your status increased to Posting Member in order to post a comment. You get your status increased by sending a message to the webmaster in order to be able to create a new post. If you already have an account, log in to it and then skip to step 2. Here are the steps. It's quick an easy!

If you're forgotten your username or password you can follow a process to retrieve your username or reset your password at the same login page.

1. Register an account here.

2. Send the Forum Master a message through the forums or email him.


You can do step 2 by looking at the icons below the name (seen to the left). An image has been attached below so you can see the area we are talking about. If you can't figure this out, that's okay, read on.

Hover over each icon and a little popup message will tell you what it does. The Message option is built-in. The email icon will open your email program (or webmail) and open a blank email. Just send us your username and we will approve you. Then you become a Posting Member and then can create new topics or reply to existing ones. You can create polls too and message other members of the forum.

You only need to do this once.

If you need any help doing either of these steps send a email to the webmaster for assistance by using the Contact page of the PLUG website.

This process is necessary to avoid spambots signing up fake accounts and then posting spam messages. We're sorry about requiring it but it keeps the forums clean and free from spam without causing an undue burder on the webmaster.
