I think contentwise everything should be there for y'all to see.

We had to change a couple of things because of all the spam that has been flooding the forum. New members posts will be invisible until a mod approves them because right now 99% of the are spam. With all the subforums they were a huge PITA to clean up and we still check every one because we don't want legit new members to be turned off.

If anybody has a review he or she wants to do, just go ahead and post it in the techtalk section and once the discussions appears to be through we'll move it to review section.

That's us. :D

Actually unless you've been a mod on a public forum I don't think you could imagine how much spam there is. There can hundreds of spam messages in a single day.

I believe it. There was a stretch of a few months last year where I was so damn sick of having I report spam posts to the mods that I was going to lose my mind

With it locked, you can't VIEW the reviews? Least I'm not able to.

we removed the sub-forums but you should still be able to see all the reviews in the review section? For some reason they're in a second folder but it's still all there, you just need to click one level deeper, let us know if that works?

That doesn't work. If you click on the "reviews" after the first time it tells you that you do not have the required permission to view that topic.

As noted by mdeth1313, you get the message you don't have required ....

Glad the hub, rim and DA reviews have been via the blog.

Hoping you can get both the reviews and classifieds locked status sorted out.

Thanks much!

I'm being told I'm not allowed to view some forums, is this because my post count is below X?

What forums? The market is locked to everyone it appears. I can't see the old stuff in there.

The review section should be visible, but we are either too dumb, too busy, or both, to fix it.

Sorry about that.
