    Exactly what it says on the title of the thread. The "ask a question!" button is missing.

    It's probably due to the newness of your account, because of spam you probably need to reach 100 posts first.

    Oh, okay then.

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    Speaking of which, it also seems like a few other things are locked out as well (probably for the same reason), such as closing your own threads (not exactly sure if you need 100 posts to be able to use it or even if it is even still able to be used).

    the closet
    You cannot close your own threads. You need to report your own thread to do that.

    I think the only features that are post-restricted are access to the Shoutbox, Ask! and the Trading Forum. Everything else is open IIRC.

    Oh yeah, that's right. Although I do remember seeing another thread that said there was an "thread status" option (but I found out that it was only limited to a certain forum). Also again, when creating a thread (at least for this forum). I saw an option to set the thread as "fixed", but saw that the option was no where to be found when I tried editing the thread again.

    Users can lock and otherwise manage their own threads in the Trading Forum, but nowhere else except the Blogs section. I don't know the "fixed" option you're talking about, staff can set threads as "sticky" which makes them stay at the top of the relevant forum, but users can't access that.

    I was talking about the prefix option when creating a thread on this forum that only seems to be available before you actually post it (as in
    you can't edit the status once you made the thread).
    Here's a screenshot:

    Oh, right, that's only in the GBAtemp Suggestions section. If you feel your question has been answered then you can go ahead and set that prefix. Most other forums don't have those.

    I can't seem to find the option to do so for some reason.

    Maybe it's only an option while creating the thread.
