View Full Version : Can't participate

01-30-2013, 10:13 AM
I can't participate in any of the conversations because my box is greyed out. I have been able to make about 4 posts, so I know I'm past the first 2 that are moderated. Is there some setting that I am overlooking, perhaps? Not that anything I have to say is earth shatteringly profound, but I'd like to join in on occasion rather than just lurk.

I had that problem sometimes when using Chrome as my browser. That's my only suggestion.

FireFox seems to work, so thanks for that suggestion. However, here I am typing this while in Safari. Consistency is overrated, I guess. ;-)

welcome...sometimes ;)

I use chrome and no issues.

I'm completely new to the site, but saw your post and wanted to let you know that you're not alone. I'm using IE8 and I have the same issue. I adjusted the settings on my pop-up blocker and reloaded the page...suddenly the reply box was active. I've noticed, though, that it's grayed out in every new thread and I have to reload the page in order for the window to become active. Very weird. Please post the solution if you find one!

Hi. I am on a Mac. My solution was to switch to a different browser - FireFox. Epiphany reminded me sometimes it's just a browser switch. I've been on Macs so long now that I don't even recall the other options for a PC. If I think of anything, I'll let you know.

Good to know! So far, just reloading the page seems to work for me. Somewhat irksome, but less annoying than using the other browsers I've tried. BTW, I miss my MAC and Netscape. :-)

I'm on Safari on a MacBook, and after I've posted ONE reply, I have to hit "reload", or my box is greyed out, too. At least it doesn't crash like Chrome?
