    This is a first for me, joining a forum. I don't know how to post a question. I get an error message while I try to post a 'new thread'

    I've tried posting a reply, but the system won't let me. Is it because I'm a new member?

    ETA: this was in regards to a forum on classroom book management systems just earlier today... but I can reply to this forum?

    There is no reason that would prohibit you from responding, but you cannot post links or endorse any product or service. Try again. You will get full privileges after a number of posts in education forums.

    Welcome to A to Z, coeurcurieux. The system software seems to catch a link in a new member's post even if the link merely appears in a quoted reply. You might try replying again either without quoting the original post at all or with a judicious edit of the quoted text.

    SageScience, your message will reach Amanda but it may take some time for her to answer. You may ask a question here of any moderator and we will try to help you. You probably do not have the option of sending a private message yet. After you post in education forums, you will get that privilege. Meanwhile, you should be able to post a new thread if it doesn't contain links, web addresses, and does not contain advertising or products or services. Click on the forum you wish to post in and create a new thread. It should work for you.

    "Contact Us" does reach Amanda but doesn't reach the moderators.

    How do I start a conversation with a new member? It will not allow me to send one.
    Thanks,

    That's the problem, Missy: it's not that you can't start a PM, it's that the newbie is still too new.

    Interesting question, SageScience, and above my pay grade. (Which wouldn't be hard, actually.)

    Moderators cannot do this, SageScience, so the Contact Us button is the only recourse.

    You can start a new thread in General Education and introduce yourself there. Weldome!

    Firefox has a new version of a browser. When logging into the site it says that the connection is not secure and that the site administrator should be informed.

    Interesting. I updated my browser after seeing you post. My browser says it's not secure, but that means that it's public. Information you submit COULD be seen by others (passwords, credit cards, etc).

    What are the "robots" that are logged in all the time?
