    Default Account Question

    Ello everyone!

    I'm having problems when I click on my account name. (Where it has the Facebook Connect square and next to it is Welcome, SierraLynn2015, Notifications, My Profile, Settings, Log Out. When I click on my profile name, it tells me that I do not have the privilege or something of the like to view that page. But it's my own page so why can't I view it!?! Any answers will (hopefully) help. :)

    --Sierra Lynn

    Please note that this part of the forum is open to everyone, including learners. As a native speaker, to ensure that learners see good English on the forum, please try to use correct, standard English in all your posts. "Ello" should be "Hello".
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    There are no specific restrictions on your account- it's all normal. There are a few general restrictions- people who have just joined cannot send private messages and posts containing links go into moderation. These disappear after posting a number of messages.

    What if I'm British? It is a perfectly legitimate way to say hello in England.

    It may be legitimate to say 'ello' in some dialects, and in some groups, but it is completely unacceptable in writing outside those groups.

    ps. I am British, as is ems.

    If you click on "Member Profile" under each username, you will see each user's native language and home country.
