I noticed that I can't search anymore, nor find posts by others either. When I try to, it tells me that;
noir_blood, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:
Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.
If you are a whiny little bitch, then you might only able to post in the whiny little bitches forum. Bad luck for you.
Now, I know I haven't been banned or gotten any type of infraction. Any other reason this could be for?
Anywho, that is the generic, "you cannot use this feature" message. The reason it is showing up now instead of the "Search has been disabled" message, is because I needed the mods to be able to search (so, for instance, when we get a spammer they can find all the spam posts to trashcan them). So search is enabled, but locked down to the minimum number of users.
