Apparently anybody can respond to that thread without a message telling them "You don't have permission in responding here" like that in Bleeping Computer!

In the old TG forum layout, there was a tab at the bottom left of the response thread "You don't have specific privileges to reply to this thread"
Yep. And thats the way it was/should be. No one not designated as a virus/malware removal specialist should be allowed to post in a thread in that forum unless starting their own thread for help!

@vsadmin @Cookiegal

We've been through all of this with them privately and they said they simply cannot change the permissions so that only the thread starter can reply to their own thread but no one else. Moderators will have to delete unauthorized posts.
That is sad. :(

And the new owners are suppose to be experienced at running a forum ? (Their words not mine)
And here also


And whats going to happen when someone with no experience posts in someones thread that was looking for help, and that screws up the thread starters pc before the post can be removed?!!

2Twenty2, please see my post #112
The 3 vertical lines give me 2 choices: Report and Only show this user.
I never see edit.

Are you sure that ordinary users like me, even have the option?
At other XenFaro boards, I get EDIT but not here.
When I post I get the "edit" but only for a period of time. I think maybe 24hrs. after that the "edit" option is no longer available.

I too belong to other sites and some of them, there is no time limit on editing a post.

On a more positive note, we did manage to get our name back! I'm not sure if you all noticed but from the beginning in the upper left corner it simply said TechGuy.org and that was because it was just the domain name. It didn't seem possible to change it but after me pleading and them looking into it we are now back to being known as Tech Support Guy or TSG as we like to call it. So @2twenty2 You can go back to welcoming people to TSG!. :)
