I've been a member for some period of time, (can't recall exactly - 2 years?)

I post on occasion to the concert review section for ZPZ shows. Yesterday I had an item from a local newspaper I thought would be of interest to the activation section (because apparently I wasn't allowed to post it anywhere else. ??? Today I received an email indicatiing that I had a response, but upon logging in, I can't read it. It indicates I'm basically not allowed to do much of anything.

Seems a bit odd. I am not a spammer. I have been a member here for an undetermined amount of time. The rule of 10 posts to have more rights will basically prevent me from much of anything, as I am an infrequent poster who may perhaps post 10 times over the course of 2 years. I only post when I'm either very inspired or have something relevant to share with the group. I'm not a hallmark happy birthday kind of poster, nor a flaming argumentative one either.

Is there any other way, or should I just pack up and go away? These strict rules seem a bit prohibitive to encouraging new membership.

Just my $.02.

Hope I can stay around here. DZ turned me on to FZ in a huge way since I first saw ZPZ in Toronto in '06. Since then I've seen ZPZ 15 times, and will continue to do so, but I'd like to come here and lurk and on occasion add to the coversation, if not propose one.

Jeff

I'm confused too, your post from yesterday has no responses....I wonder why you were notified that it had any. Nobody can reply to messages in the activation section anyway.

probably me, after reading your zappa symphony in buffalo thread, sent you a pm suggesting you start an identical thread in 'zappa concerts', 'what's zappening' or any other regular board except 'activation' ... no replies are possible by anyone on the 'activation' board; forgot about the 10-post minimum before you can see messages

You only have to post once in the activation section to become activated. That's the point of the activation section, to activate new members. After that one post there, you can post anywhere.

Have you started collecting FZ's albums? Have you got or heard at least 10? Go to the Zappa Albums forum and either find the album polls or if they are buried too deep just create a new topic for each of 10 FZ albums and write one sentence stating your favourite track in each. Easy. Or just pick 10 threads at random and reply with a simple Hello!

Thanks for all the replys. I'll take your advice and try out some more posts in the relevant sections. I did try that initially, but it wouldn't let me post anything, anywhere else. I'll give it s shot now. Here goes....
