Default Photo of the day

Hi - it said I don't have sufficient permission to post....

Will pouting or asking nicely work better to correct this ?

Sorry, neither of those will work if you're trying to start a new thread in that forum. :-)

The POTD Forum contains one thread for each winning photo, and members are not allowed to start new threads in that forum. So, if you tried to start a new thread, you would probably see a permissions error.

But, you can reply to existing threads (as you'll see other members doing), so you can comment about one of the winning photos.

If you view the text under that Forum Title from the main forums page at http://forums.steves-digicams.com/ , you'll see this about it:

Note that you'll find the same thing applies for the first three Forums listed on the main page if you view the list from the main forums page here (note the text under each Forum Title if you view the list of Forums):

A Word from Steve's
This forum is where members can find new information from Steve's. Note that you can reply to threads in this forum, but you cannot start new threads, so that the Announcements will remain sorted by Date.

Photo of the Day Contest
This link is provided to our daily selection for the Photo of the Day contest. Each month we award prizes. Note that you can reply to threads in this forum, but you cannot start new threads, so that the POTD winners will remain sorted by Date.

Steve's Latest Reviews
This forum is where you'll find the latest reviews at Steve's. Note that you can reply to threads in this forum, but you cannot start new threads, so that the Reviews will remain sorted by Date.

Basically, those 3 forums are setup as informational and announcement type forums, where you can't start any new threads (hence the permissions error you saw). But, you can still reply to the threads in those forums. So, feel free to use the "Post Reply" button when viewing one of the threads in those forums if you want to comment on it.
