Permission to access threads


Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me why when i try to read some threads that I get a message that says:


you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:


Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?

If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.


I don't understand this. Can someone help. I am just trying to read threads not change anything just read them.

Those threads are in the semi-private Lounge forum, which you do not have access to. See this thread for more information:



oh, I thought that once you registered you had access. I didn't know there was a second level. is there any reason why a registered person would be excluded- ie what are the requirements to get into the lounge?

So let me see if I understand this access thing, If I want access to them, I can e-mail a request. Now if I got access after I emailed a request would that allow me access to all semi-private threads or just certain ones? I think I am just really confused with this whole semi-private thing.

What it is, is a semi private place where they just have conversations about several different casual things. It is part of this forum but they have made it so people who just hop on, cannot read everything there. Instead you have to either post enough posts or ask for special permission in a private message.


Many forums have such a benefit for people who have posted a certain amount or comply with certain things. It helps cut down on those that come to forums just to say whatever they want whenever they want.


Oh and if you get access you will be able to see what you see now plus that special lounge area.

Ok I understand now. Thank you. So, how many posts do you have to have before they give you access if you don't want to e-mail a request? And how do you make a thread semi-private?

Threads are not semi-private, it's the GottaTalk Lounge forum which is semi-private.


The thread titled "Problem with work--what should I do" is located inside the GottaTalk Lounge which is semi-private.


Please read this on how to gain access.
