  2. Making sure that the information panel at the bottom of my screen did NOT say -
You may post new threads
You may post replies
You may post attachments
You may edit your posts

Which it is still doing now. And I did check it very carefully before spending some considerable time writing my introductory text and uploading seven photos and writing interesting captions for each one, all of which promptly disappeared when I hit the post button. I did feel a little bit tetchy, I must admit, hence my post.

Yours, John
I guess you could post 6 more posts complaining about the photo posting rule and couch them all in some sort of "humor" about "yanks" or something.
