    Exclamation Re: NEW MEMBERS: Having Trouble Posting, PMing, or Editing Preferences? READ THIS THR

    I've actually been a member for a few years. I like to browse. But everytime I have a question and try to log in all I ever get is the " if you are seeing this page" trying to change my password and can't get to that page!! I have the one from the email I got to change it. But everytime I try to change it I can't get to that page or I get kicked out of the forum!! " I.E. the server is full please try again later. 8 /
    right now I'm just to frustrated!! I can't even remember what I was going to post! I can't even get on this forum from my laptop. Only by my iPhone! I hope someday you will fix this problem.

    Sounds like you haven't.

    Well... obviously you were able to work it out without any "fixing" on the forum's part... cuz you posted. When literally thousands of people are able to successfully login every day, I have no choice but to look at it as "if it ain't broke, don't fix it".

    I'm excited to be on CPF; this place was a second home to my dad for a long time. I will do my best not to ask a question already addressed, so crossing fingers now. I've been trying to return an email to admin, using the email listed on this site, but it's getting kicked back. Am I missing something? I'd PM, but I've not met my quota and am still learning the navigation of the site.

    I don't know about the email, that's strange.

    But

    BTW, who was/is your dad?

    Thank you!

    speaking of, is there a a way to turn down the brightness of the red banner to maybe a pastel. after staring at it for a couple of seconds, i cant read anything while scrolling down the page! but just to show i've read it, i know this doesn't go towards my 3-post count

    My dad was Roy Bost; he lost his battle with cancer in 2008. CPF was incredibly kind with condolences to my family.

    Roy, yes we all loved Roy. Please post in our Cafe forum here on CPF, and introduce your self as Roy's son, and pass on any thoughts you have about him. He is still sorely missed here on CPF. There were few members who did not read his Review threads, and we all loved his banter.

    Thinking I dont understand it?! Sorry.

    So what do we have to do.

    Do we need to make three posts on the forum and they don't show up until approved by a Admin or Mod. And then after that we are free to post and they will just show up.

    Or is it only ,airing a new thread and that that won't show up?

    Or do we have to make a three posts here, what is this section of the forum for?

    Practice posts what dose that mean?...I am on many forums and have not bad issues before maby I am just being dumb.

    Not sure if anybody can help me out here,

    I joined the CPF forums a couple months ago to predominately post in the LED subsection. Over the course between the joining time and now, I have have posted a handful of good faith technically based answers as well as a general explanation of LED's and related circuit theory (total number of posts> 3). Nonetheless, I am unable to access the 'My Profile' (insufficient privilege note) tab alongside the yellow backed postcount message. Can someone verify the validity of my posts if possible?

    Edit: If any admin did anything between me first posting this and now, thank you.

    Nothing was done, you now have sufficient posts to have full privileges.

    You have made no attempt to post a genuine post, all submitted posts were fluff, running around posting great review will not get you the required three posts, please make some attempt to contribute. - Norm

    I'm not understanding why especially one other of my posts hasn't been posted. It has been at least 4 days and it was a valid post, not simply trying to get past the 3 posts deal. I also posted in the introduction section, thinking that hey this doesn't go towards my post count so it would appear and I can see that things are still working, that didn't work either. Should I re-type my last official post that I intended to go into my thread of "recommend me a flashlight" with the specifics I already outlined as stated in the guidelines for recommending a flashlight?

    You have only one post in an area where it counts toward your post count, you have no outstanding posts.
