Can't Ask Question! RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have another account "Alvin K.N. Tan" (display name), "" registered email which is the account I use on these forums.

    It seems recently I can no longer "Ask Question" or "Reply" to threads at all, instead, I'm redirected to My Profile page. This is the case for both Mozilla FireFox and Internet Explorer.

    I've had to create another account, (i.e. this one) and it seems asking/replying works perfectly fine. I've already deleted cookies relating to microsoft sites/forums but it hasn't helped.

    Any suggestions?

  • Sorry if this isn't the right forum to post, I couldn't find a suitable forum so feel free to move this to the appropriate category.

    My problem is, I have another account which I've been using for some time "Alvin K.N. Tan" (display name) "" (registered e-mail address).

    The problem with the account is that, whenever i clicked "Ask Question" to create a new post in this forum, I get re-directed to My Profile page, where you edit your personal details etc.

    I've tried using Mozilla FireFox and Internet Explorer and the results are the same - I get re-directed.

    So I'm using another e-mail address (i.e. this account "tkna.") and it seems to work fine.

    Maybe one of my cookies is stuffed? I don't know, I need ideas.

    Thanks all,

  • Thanks bdbodger for the reply,

    I did suspect one of my cookies was stuffed, but having deleted all microsoft related cookies, it doesn't seem to fix my problem.

    Any further suggestions? Any moderators dealt with this problem before?

    Thanks all,
