    I hope I am posting in right forum. I tried posting in Site Feedback but was not allowed to post there.

    I see that my status is Greylisted... so was wondering what does it mean? Not that it is of any problem but was just curious to know because i dont see any other Greylisted members. :)

    Hi Nirav,

    The forums have a rule set behind the scenes that set some of the account permissions based on reasons including the age of accounts, how frequently they are used or inactive, the links to posts ratio, etc. You are right, there are not many active greylisted accounts.

    Hope that explains it for you and :thanks: for the good discussions!
