Frequently Asked Questions


HELP! I can't reply to messages. I get a permissions error.

If you are unable to post (but can view forums) the likely cause is that your email address is unvalidated.

In order to check this go to: https://www.thekennel.net.au/forum/index.php?account/contact-details

Ensure that your email address is up to date.

Our system is designed to periodically check that email addresses for users are legitimate. If the system does not get a reply, or the email address comes back as invalid, the account is put into read only mode.

Another reason you are unable to post, could be due to permissions restrictions enabled due to a query on your account.

Be sure to check your Conversations in this instance (https://www.thekennel.net.au/forum/index.php?conversations/) as a moderator will inform you of any account restriction in place.

You can contact a moderator (E.G Mr Invisible) via Start a New Conversation who can check this for you: https://www.thekennel.net.au/forum/index.php?conversations/add

A list of moderators can be found here: https://www.thekennel.net.au/forum/index.php?members/&type=staff


Should you still find yourself unable to post (even after validating email), it may be because your account is flagged for manual approval. This often occurs with registrations from free email addresses and known spam domains.

Moderators generally try to attend to account approvals promptly, however, as they are volunteers sometimes there can be delays.

If you are still experiencing problems or wish to ask for support, please post in our Account Assistance Thread, and a moderator will be alerted to approve your post and start investigating your problem.

Once your post appears in that thread, it means a moderator has read and is looking into your issue. Replies will often be made in that thread if we cannot contact you otherwise.
