Can only PAL members and current Mods and Admins reply to PAL people's posts? I have no "reply" button on PAL posts, so I can't congratulate people on their books, etc. Is this inability to reply intentional or a mistake? Just wondering...

I'm not getting a reply button on PAL posts, either.

On what boards, exactly, is this happening--do you mean in the PAL Publications Board, or just replying to PAL members' posts in general?

For me, it's the PAL Publications Board. I clicked on a few posts and don't get the Reply button for any of them.

There's a post by Verla at the top of the PAL Publications board that seems to imply (though it's not said in so many words) that only PAL members can post there, though others can look. You have to get your PAL status certified in order to post there.

And in fact I can't post there either, and I'm not a PAL member, since I haven't written and published a children's book with a qualifying publisher.

Yes, I meant the PAL publication board.

I used to be able to reply on that board. Two people I congratulated in February 2015 were Keila and Ellie.

Barb, we currently have it set up that only PAL members can post there and on an approval basis only, to keep it exclusive perk for PAL members.  That can be revisited, but it's how the settings are currently arranged for that board.

I'm not sure if this is the same issue or not, but I'm a PAL member and wanted to send a Congrats to BobiMartin under the topic heading "Two new books out--finally!" but I was unable to post.

That's exactly what happened to me.

All right, so you got me curious. I, too, am a PAL member. I looked for a way to congratulate Bobbi and there isn't one.
Fix needed. (Life does not shower us with perks everywhere; so we want ours...  ;) )
