A This is because you are too new of a user, if you are an older user prior to 2014, however still get this message it is because you did not exceed the useage that xenforo allows for permission prior to the switch from vbulletin to xenforo.

@sunni Any word on my Picture question as yet? Also when quoting someone i cannot seem to click and highlight their text to isolate the parts im replying to. I have to manually click and backspace and thats slow and annoying. Is there another way of doing it? (sorry I'm not tech savy).

Also ur spell check is very American... Colour and Gaol is English...

as Far as I can tell it does not strip data
As for the spell check I dunno I’m at the mercy of the software itself and since it’s an American company who puts out xenforo they make their spell check to their Origins sorry

I’ll look into the highlighting tho what are you on pc or what?

That's a bummer not striping data. I'm on a lap top. Shame an American company doesnt'include the small variations in English, but that's another topic.
