Hello I'm wondering why when I"m trying to make a new topic in the new help section, or any other part of the forum, I get a "that page doesn't exist" thing.



How can I post a new topic so I can get questions to my anime/manga related questions or whatever? Thanx.

Other than in the HELP sections, you need to have collected 500 CR points to create a new thread. I kind of wonder if that was intended to be enforced in the Recommended forum though...

Oh thanx. I didn't know. Guess it'll be a while before I can post there then. And do you need 500 to just post there period or 500 each time you post?

Once you reach 500 you are "free" to create new threads (or create a group). You can post anytime to an existing thread (after some really small number I think).

The recs used to be all in one thread, so it wasn't a big deal before, but now that it practically requires a new thread each time to do essentially the same thing, that seems a bit restrictive to me. But what do I know...

I don't think we even thought about that. I know I didn't. I've alerted Bjaker to the situation, and hope something can be done. We certainly don't want to make it hard for newish users to ask the kinds of things we expect them to ask, and which others enjoying helping them with.

I kind of just thought the original rec thread would simply be moved to the new section, not to the closed one, so until this came up I didn't think of the 500 point limit, either, since I'm long past that...

Okay, until we get things sorted out, I've started a general thread for requesting recommendations, advice, and info here:

/forumtopic-880789/dont-have-enough-cr-points-to-start-a-topic-post-your-requests-for-recommendations-and-info-here

It's intended as a temporary measure, so I'm just creating one thread for everything right now.

Sincere apologies for the inconvenience.

Tbh, it could be that you either need to have 500 points OR be a premium member (regardless of #points--and normally you do get 1000 points every month, but I do know something sometimes goes flaky with that.) It's probably because you have a premium membership that you've been able to start new topics.

If you want a more definitive answer and to see if something particular is going on with your account then please contact customer support using the Contact Us form.

Also, I'm going to go ahead and delete your post in the other thread, since the purpose of that thread is for requesting recommendations, advice, and information that aren't related to CR site issues, and I've done my best to provide answers here.
