Why cant I start topics on some gaming forums?

I checked Naval Action and Ashes of Creation both are locked.
There is no way to start a topic as a member on this forum, why is that?

    Not enough badges....I had no problem.  ;)

    On hiatus from EVE Online since Dec 2016 - Screw off-grid PVE boosting changes

    Pouring on extra "Salt" for 2017

    In my day MMORPG's were so hard we fought our way through dungeons in the snow, uphill both ways.

    Don't just play games, inhabit virtual worlds™

    He has 16 badges and 612 posts.  That's far beyond any reasonable threshold to try to block spammers.  And even if that were the cause, why allow creating threads here?

    It doesn't let me create a thread on the Ashes of Creation forum, either.  The whole row that contains the New Discussion button is completely missing.

    This seems like a question for the Help Desk forum, not The Pub.

    You could PM @MikeB and ask him if there is a permission problem.
    Centuries ago, in primitive times, before the dawn of civilization, there were things that would be inconceivable to us today; such things as poverty, disease, violence, senility, and love.

    I figured you just bought the Founder's Tier 2..  Oh wait, we're talking about MMORPG.com forums, not crowdfunded, official game website forums.

    Similarly, all the game development forums do not allow the creation of new threads.
    I want to help design and develop a PvE-focused, solo-friendly, sandpark MMO which combines crafting, monster hunting, and story.  So PM me if you are starting one.

    There are a number of game developers who visit this website, is it possible that game development forums are limited to actual developers creating new threads? :o

    He was able to make a thread there. Unless he is a shill for the game and is actually a developer/part of the team lol

    The game dev forums were not supposed to be visible. I can make threads in Naval Action, but not Ashes of Creation. Not sure what's going on there. Will talk to Ben about it on Monday.

    Anyone else unable to make threads in Naval Action/Ashes of Creation?

    This should be fixed now. Please let me know if you're still encountering any issues.

    ???

    Those forums are pretty horrible and contain a ***load of bad ideas.

    But I've definitely been able to post there in the past.

    And whats the point of having them if they're not visible ?
