    Trying to join the 52-56 Ford Owner's Social Group. As I understand it, I need to be invited or the message " You have insufficient privileges to post here" appears.
    How do I get invited?
    Thanks

    i used to read a few social forums but dont recall being registered in any. Since the big changes i can't see any as they're all seemingly private, or dead? I've tried a few times at idle moments but seem to get to the same point, nowhere! I feel like i'm all done trying to be honest, but think i'm missing out too.

    Thanks Ryan, but I've done all of that previously and again today, twice!

    All I see is is the categories, Art etc, but they're all marked private. If i ignore the private bit and enter say hotrods, all the groups listed therein are all marked private too and aren't clickable. It's like i don't have sufficient access privileges or summink???

    Sadly no improvement :(.

    The icons next to the categories are greyed out too, not bright red as in the tutorial.

    That appears to have done the trick! A couple of categories still greyed out but hey!

    Now your next task is to get some activity in there - everywhere appears to be a complete ghost town, unless of course its just me, again?? But if everyone's had the same problems as me that'd explain the inactivity??

    Cheers

    same deal, all the social forums (except COE) appear private to me and greyed out... What's the secret handshake? thanks

    ...my mistake, I've never been accused of being the brightest bulb on the tree..... Click on Customs and then all the related sub-forums appear.... thanks for setting all this up!
