New members: Email us to activate your account


Hi folks,

We are having issues with our email server. The confirmation email is not going out. We expect to have it fixed in 1-2 days.

In the interim, new members should email with your user name and email address, and we will manually activate your forum account.

Thanks for your patience!


The email server issue has been resolved. Thank you all for your patience and understanding. Let us know if you have questions.


I just wanted to say you guys rock @michael and @littleviolette . This site is so amazing I wouldn’t mind even if I had to send in my details via carrier pigeon to get my ID activated.


@SH6422 here to get activated.


I don’t know how else to ask this since I can’t make a post. I just joined the forums, and did the confirmation via email but I am unable to make any new posts. Is there a waiting period before I can post? Thanks in advance


You should be able to create new topic on your own after spending a few minutes on the forum.


New member here and trying to create a new topic in the marketplace section and I get the following error, “You are not permitted to view the requested resource.” I am doing something wrong?


The forum is designed to stop people from joining and immediately posting a new topic. It seems like a good way to cut down on spam.


What is the wait time before posting? I just created my account, got verified and unable to find the POST button to ask a question to the Ask The Hackrs category


I had this same problem, but was able to make a post within a few hours. Not sure of the exact time because I left to do other things before successfully posting


I’ve been having the same issue. I’ve had my account activated, earned 'Read Guidelines" but I still can’t post. Any suggestions? Thanks! This seems like a great forum.


New users are allowed to post new topics only after viewing a certain number of posts. The system is set up this way to prevent spam posted by bots. You should be able to post if you casually browse through a few topics.


I got the verification email but I can’t figure out how to start a new thread.


Spend a few minutes looking around. Comment and like some comments and you should be able to post in a few mins.


can’t figure out how to start a new post.


I am viewing posts. 202020


How do I post a new topic?


You realize new members cannot make posts?


It’s for the better with some.


Slightly unrelated, but I had to make a new account and am unable to post because signing in via twitter is down.
