    Just curious, do I need a specific post count or authorization to reply in the Cop Talk section? I'm a cop in Chicago and wanted to reply to a thread in there. I don't really have a lot to say in the Glocking section yet, since I have only had my Glock for a year and am still learning about it... which is a big reason I signed up here.

    Thanks.

    Just cause you say your a cop doesn't get you a free pass. Follow the rules buddy, or get drummed out.

    You need 30 days and a certain number of posts to post in CT. Read the rules.

    From the Glock Talk FAQ (linked near the top of every page):


    http://glocktalk.com/forums/faq.php?faq=newmembers#faq_blockedforums

    Why Can't I Post In Some Forums?

    There are several forums here whose natures are so volatile that we have had to take extra measures to control them. The forums in question include:

    Cop Talk
    The Furball Forum
    Political Issues
    Civil Liberties Issues
    Religious Issues
    the AWOT Forum

    The topics of these six forums are very controversial and are the cause of most of the problems we have to deal with here.

    Much of the trouble in these forums is caused by people who have either been banned and sneaked back on the site, or people who are signing up for no other reason than to go to one of these forums to grind their axe. In an effort to help calm things down in these forums, new members here can no longer post immediately in these six problem forums.

    How Do I Gain Posting Access To These Forums?

    A member must have been a member in good standing here for thirty days or more and have made at least twenty posts elsewhere on the site, or...
    A member must purchase either a general paid membership, or buy a one-time paid subscription that grants immediate posting access to these forums.


    For more information on these paid subscriptions, please check here: http://glocktalk.com/forums/payments.php.

    These forums are a small part of our site, but they are responsible for most of the problems we encounter. We are hoping this measure will help to prevent some of that trouble.


    Hope this answers your question. If you need anything else, drop me a PM and I'll do what I can to help.

    Ok thanks for the replies guys. I saw the FAQ but didn't see anything about that. No big deal. I appreciate the info.

    Okay, I give up. What's an AWOT ?!

    Not a terribly busy forum, most of the time.

    I have been around a while SheepDog...but have a LOW post count. I am retired with 23 years service. Hope we get to chat sometime. Be safe brother.

    Welcome from the SW burbs. I look forward to seeing you in CopTalk. Though I warn you - The City of Chicago takes an awful beating in there. Not the cops - mostly the stupid politics.

    This answers my question as to why I could not post either! Like to read but don't have much to say that has not already been said. I'll have to work on that. (This will help!)

    I was having the same question. Been on here awhile just like to browse. Wife says I'm a lot cuter when I don't speak. Most of my post would be better suited for CT.
