Every now and then I go to check out a thread and it wont let me view it. It says I don't have permission. I don't get it. Is this because I'm on some kind of ignore list?

It could be because of your distinction status. Plebes have free run of the forum.

Maybe you need to contribute money to the website.

That is weird to me. You would think it would be the opposite.
No. Actually, it makes perfectly good sense. There's a lot that you're better off not knowing.Perform this test: Go to the repairs section and declare that you use contact cement on your pads. See if you get any response. If you don't that means that you have been immunized and protected.

There can be a number of reasons why this happens...

  • You could be trying to view a thread seconds after an admin deleted it or renamed it.
  • An admin mistake. There are parts of the forum that you do not have access to where we may move a thread there while accidentally leaving a redirect.
  • Sometimes there are forum glitches.
  • Finally, if you're trying to access a thread in the vBCms Comments forum, that's normal and I regret to say that we're not done trying to figure out how this %*#@> thing works :cussing:

If you happen to remember in what part of the forum where were those threads that you couldn't access, I can have a look and fix the problem(s) if I find some.

This is, of course, the words of wisdom from a very large turtle....

Of course, the Grand Turtle Council has determined that I'm not supposed to access that second link that's probably none of my business? :shock:

More like ancient business - the 2nd link is an old marketplace ad moved to archives until their final faith (likely gonna go bye-bye for ever) gets decided.

It's not the Grand turtle, it's the screaming turtle.

I'm curious to know where you got the link to that (the 2nd one) thread?
Links such as that one show up all the time in Google. It noticed it after Harri announced the "archiving" process of marketplace ads. These archived ads still exist in the Google cache, so they show up as legitimate search results until you follow the link, which leads to the "insufficient permission" page. You can still view such ads, for now, by clicking on the "Cached" icon on the Google search results page.

I get that now for every picture at saxpics.com. I figured that my wife had contacted saxpics and explained that the site was enabling my addition for vintage saxes. Your lack of permission here may also be an intervention by people who care about you.

Whenever I'm refused permission for anything, I don't question it and just assume it's deserved because of the life I've lead.
