Okay. Another thing you could try (no promises) is making a second user account and seeing if the issue persists. That way we can rule out whether the problem is directly related to your account or not.

I did just update my OS & browser on my mac (Safari), so let's see if it helps. But I do have the same problem/error posting from my pc too (using IE).

Well I can assure you that you haven't been banned at least.

This isn't a widespread issue with the site but at least one other member - silly puppy (Mike) - has been complaining about a similar issue - Mike if you read this are you still having this issue?

I thought it was just him but since you're having issues as well I expect there is a compatibility issue somewhere. I notice from our online users page you're on a Mac and I think Mike said he uses one too. Might be a coincidence or it might be something. Hard to tell at this point. 

Have you tried, if you can, seeing if changing web browser or computer makes any difference? Also make sure your system including web browser is up to date. 

Can you use our main site (or PA's) okay? Rate releases? Comment on reviews, profiles etc?

What I can try for now is just resetting your MMA posting permissions to see if that changes anything. I did this for Mike before but I don't think he said whether it helped or not.

Let's see if this post works.

I can't post on here or progarchives anymore, keep getting an error "Sorry, you do not have permission to do that" type error, even though I am logged in and haven't been banned (at least to my knowlege.

It let me make a couple of posts back in December, so let's see if this one works, and can anyone here or at progarchives look into it?

Your avatar is changed to my eyes. Possible just needs a refresh to display correctly.

http://www.metalmusicarchives.com/aerosmith--rocks.aspx

According to the description above the rating section for an album, it mentions a submission with a review is a weight of 3, and a weight of 1 for a rating only.  Is the weighing system more complex that I am aware of?

This is the only instance of this I've seen so far btw.

That's odd indeed, and it's not the only case, here's another I found:


Perhaps it's because I'm in the admin team that my ratings have a higher value than those of special collabs? 
But, as far as I know those are supposed to have an equal value.

Seing that demos are VERY important in some heavy metal genres, I fully support that idea.

Demo reviews don't appear on the front page, that's true. Probably supposed to be like that, not sure.
