Unable to reply to a topic because I am a new user

Hello,

I am trying to reply to a topic I have opened but it will not let me have more than two replies. Do I need to open a new topic?

Thank you,

I have manually elevated your trust level. Try now.

For anyone else reading this in the future, this automatically happens if you read sufficient posts/spend time on the site and such. It’s a mechanism to prevent spam (which is one of the reasons we don’t have any).
