Uhm … not sure, this used to be something done for new people. After a couple of correct postings I think your “settings” were changed. Not sure there is an actual global change, at least not one that I am aware of.
BTW, the forums and the site have two separate teams, Terry_42 and I only moderate here, we have no official standing with the site.
That said, I know Phil and Steve do “troll” the forums, so I am sure they’ll be reading this and act accordingly.
Alternatively you can send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org and it will end up with the DDJT team/web team.
