    Hi temp

    If you are a new member and you are unable to post a message or make a thread on the forum do not panic, nothing is wrong and it is not a bug. All new registrations to the site are being manually approved at the moment to fight the influx of spam. You shouldn't have to wait more than 12 or so hours before your account gets approved and you have full posting privileges.

    Thank you for your patience and in the meantime feel free to join our chatroom if you desperately want to talk to your fellow tempers! :yaypsp:

    Ya, I think I signed up like 3 times before I actually read the message that said it had to be approved by Administrators :D

    Indeed, it seems loads of people are missing that pop up message which is why I made this thread. ;)

    What about the shoutbox? I know this site has one but I apparently don't have the privilege even if I URL into the shoutbox directly.

    You need 100 posts to access the shoutbox.

    Also account verification is no longer being done.
