    Greetings BYCers,

    We're new here, and relatively new to chickens in general. We found this amazing site and we're very excited to join - it looks like there's an endless wealth of knowledge here! We're trying to get some advice on one of our hens - we took some pictures to post for feedback, but keep getting this message when we try to upload ANY pictures (add to post, set avatar, etc):

    {"status":"error","message":"Your account does not have the required permissions to access this page."}

    Help please! How do we get our account fixed so we can add pictures? We really need to get some advice - this hen is looking pretty raggedy. :(

    Thanks so much, and pleased to meet you all. :)

    Once you post a few more times, you'll be able to share your pictures. By limiting what a new member can do on BYC, the moderators are better able to stop spamming (and they do a great job of that). Just say hello to other new members or find a topic of interest and join in on the discussions.

    It's nice to have you here!

    NFC summed up the rules. You could, for instance, welcome new members like we are doing to you. You can ask you are a new member also. Easy peasy. Welcome to Backyard chickens.

    It looks like we got our pics working now! We were able to post in the "Sick" subforum about our hen.

    Thanks again! [​IMG]
