    Hi Paul/anyone!!!

    The last 3 days when I've logged on, I've been getting the same "stale" postings, with no new postings evident.... In addition, a series of messages (e.g., "you are unable to post new messages", and "icons are off", etc...) suggests that I'm not really online - note I AM actually on the net, so that ISN'T the problem....
    I was finally able to get the new postings by using the "Jump to Forum" area -but I don't understand what has interfered with using the straightforward logon. Any ideas?? P.s., I hate to complain, but I've gotten used to browsing on Talkbass, and am missing it!!!!

    Hi Smash

    Unfortunately, the problem ISN'T resolved. When I try to enter through the "Forum Display" page, I get the same stale messages (now 4 days old), plus the following:

    "You may not post new threads
    You may not post replies
    You may not post attachments
    You may edit your posts
    vB code is Off
    Smilies are Off
    code is Off
    HTML code is Off"

    When I enter through the "Forum Jump" window, however, I get the current postings....
    Any ideas what's going on??

    Thanks again,

    Did you recently update your profile with a new email address? This happened to me a few months ago. If this is the case, there will be an admin email at your new email address, and you will need to click the link in it to reenable your account.
