I tried to reply to SL8995's "know where i can purchase RL second life items" thread (I have often wanted a real-life version of Senjata Witt's concert T), but when I hit the reply button, either of them, I get bumped out of the thread. So what's up?
I swear I've been able to pull off a SLF reply before. What am I doing wrong this time?
Hitting "Reply" takes me to this screen:
I don't see anything to indicate that the thread has been locked or that my posting ability has been hobbled. Glitch? Temporary insanity? Brain fart?
Apologies to Storm, but I can't post freely, can't use "adult" language or discuss "adult" themes and the functionality of the SLF forum, no matter which version, has always been so bloody frustrating and, and, and...well, that's why you don't see me there very often. (Good tips for those who want me off their forums, btw. ;) Hey, it worked for SLO.)
Oh, and this is the shirt I want in real.
ETA: Shit, did I become a "male" when they revamped the forums? That's what the little blue man means, yes? That's the default? So now I have to go back in and fix my gender? Aargh. At least I finally noticed the damn thing.
ETA2: Alright, damn it, where do you change the little blue "M" man? I'm clicking through all the "Preferences" and "Settings" and not seeing it yet.
ETA3: Oh. It means I'm a "member." I remember getting the e-mail announcing that. I thought getting an email telling me I was a member after all this time was a bit...well, anyway, I think I even commented on it here in my blog somewhere. A little blue M man...really?
ETA4: What are the colors and symbols for the rest of the levels? Is there a handy chart?
ETA5: Oh ffs. I think I figured out the replying problem. Depending on which link I click the site "sees" me as either logged in or not logged in and since I was logged in I didn't notice the difference and didn't immediately think to check ('cuz I'm so used to the bloody aggravation of SLF!) when I clicked around. Let me try that again.
ETA6: Yup. That was it. Depending on how I get in there, it either recognizes me as logged in or it doesn't and if I click on "Sign in" it doesn't actually ask me to sign in, it just changes my status to already signed in and lets me reply.
ETA7: And a "General Discussion" in each section? And a borked "Search" that I have to help like a toddler crossing the road? Argh. I'm in danger of another SLF rant. I'm so spoiled by other sites. Must...stay...away...from...SLF.
ETA8: 'Course, it could just be the day I'm having.
ETA9: Squealing and showering affection on Storm for this.

"I was made aware of this issue from a friend and I, too, attempted to post to this OP and can not. Is the lithium software censoring/moderating our replies, too?"
I'm lovin' Storm's current siggy. ;)
