(Newbie) Unable to create an event

I tried to create an event the other night but the forum wouldn't let me. I thought it might be because I'm too new and it's a spam control, but tonight I can't access any events either. I only get the message saying that either my account doesn't have sufficient privileges or my account has been disabled by an admin. Any ideas? Thanks!

Re: not able to access events

Posting a commercial event? Read this first ...

Social or Commercial?

You probably know already that your event is commercial, rather than social. In short, if you're advertising your business, charging a fee or hoping to sell something, then it's a commercial event. Social events have no commercial interest.

Examples of commercial events are comedy nights, wine tasting, salsa class and advertising concerts. This also includes clubs that charge for events or membership fees.

Commercial events should specify if there is an entry fee or other price attached. They should preferably have some angle of interest for the expat/englishforum community.

Example: If I invite people to meet in a pub to watch Chris Black sing, then it's a social event. If Chris himself makes the invitation, then it's commercial.


There are now two calendars: social (default calendar) and commercial. This helps to separate the different types of event. To see the commercial calendar, look at the bottom right of the calendar and use the “Calendar Jump” field.

Commercial events should only be posted in the commercial calendar.

Who can post events

In order to post an event, you have to have a little forum history. Most people qualify pretty quickly. The reason for this is that we want to encourage people to be an active part of the community and not to use it just for free advertising. The qualifications are as follows:
At least 10 forum posts (not off topic)
AND... member for at least one week
AND... neutral or positive reputation
