    You can quote others but your response needs to be at least a minimum length (actually I think its 10 characters) ...
    Ed: or is there another issue?

    Oh may that what it is, They asked a question and I had to go into detail. Any thing I should be aware of. Who I can talk to and who not to talk to ?

    You can talk to anybody you like here... or not. You decide!
    The main thing I think is that it has to be English, no double posting... things like that. You'll find this to be a very easy-going group.

    Enjoy!

    Welcome to the forums, Rick... hope to see you around!

    There was a new modification added to the forum software just last night that is intended to keep spammers from signing up, coming in, and then leaving their spam URLs on the board. That's probably the error message you saw regarding your post count.

    Once you have posted enough times on the forums, you can start to post messages with URLs in them.

    Regarding the forum rules here, they are fairly simple and to the point, but I doubt that you've broken any rules. You can check the link in the blue nav-bar at the top of this page and others if you want to check out the rules.

    Hope that all made sense. Have fun on the forum!
