    New Commercial Forum

    Just in case you folks hadn't seen it, there's a new forum here at Family Woodworking, called the Commercial Post Zone. We've had a number of well-intentioned "commercial" members post offers for sale prices or other good deals for the members on the products they sell, but due to the commecialism rules in the Forum Rules and Code of Conduct (CoC), we've reluctantly had to ask that the posts be removed. (Commercial members are folks who work for a company that makes or sells things for woodworking.) This new forum allows commercial members to let the rest of us know about good deals or other info regarding the stuff they sell, and it provides a valuable service to the rest of the members.

    We are opening this up on a trial basis, and if it is a success, we will be proposing changes to the Forum Rules and Code of Conduct to make it official soon.

    The new forum is a sub-forum of the Classified Ads forum...all part of the Off Topic Area. If you haven't already, check it out now, and check it out often.

    I tried to follow the links, Commercial Post Zone and new forum, in your post and was told I don't have permission to enter. Is access limited to certain members at this point?

    Mark, just so you don't think they're picking on you, it happens to me too.

    Hmm...you guys should be able to view the posts there. It's set up to limit who can post there, but all logged-in members should be able to view the posts there. Have you tried logging out, then logging back in again. I wonder if it might be a cookie issue with your browser?

    I tried logging out and logging in with the same response. I don't see the forum listed in the directory of forums either. I don't have any other issues viewing anything else on the site.

    My guess is that folks are not seeing this becuase they are not looking for it as a sub-forum. It is easy to miss buried where it is.
    Cheers, Frank

    Nope, forum permissions have to be revised...it doesn't show in the sub-forum list and I can't access the link directly. I assume Frank and Vaugh can see it because they have moderator/admin permissions...

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

    1. 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?
    2. If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.

    What's strange is that I can see it from my non-privileged Vaughn User account.

    Wait a minute...I just saw what's different. There are several "stages" of user accounts, and the one you're in right now ("Registered Users") wasn't allowed in. Neither were "New Members". I'll go flip a couple switches...

    Should be fixed now.

    Do keep in mind that we currently have it set up so members can only view threads and download attachments in the CPZ. They are not set up to post there. If you click the Post button, you'll get an "access denied" message. If you have questions to ask a vendor, then send a PM.
