Yes, you can, but only in designated categories (“sub-forums”). Please help us keep the model-specific categories such as E-Type, XJ, Saloons, and so on on-topic. If you strike up an off-topic conversation in any of those categories, it will be removed by the moderators and you might face sanctions.
We have two categories on Jag-lovers dedicated to general chit-chat and non-Jaguar topics:
- The Lounge (NO politics allowed)
- The Pub (politics allowed, subject to rules of conduct)
If you can’t seem to find either category, then that’s because you’re not yet in the correct “Trust Level”. Only people in TL (Trust Level) 2 or higher can see the Lounge, and only people in TL2 who have specifically applied for access can see the Pub.
All new users on this forum are placed in TL0 (“New user”) when they join. Promotions to TL1 (“Basic user”), TL2 (“Member”), and so on are automatic, and are handled by the forum software. The system will send you a message notifying you of the promotion when it happens.
To find out which Trust Level you are in, please consult this post. It will also tell you how you can find out what you need to get promoted to the next level.
Hang in there, getting promoted to TL2 isn’t all that difficult. You just need to read some posts, engage with other people, and be an active and positive contributor to our community. To read more about Discourse Trust Levels, and their requirements, please see this page.
If you have any questions about this, please post them to the #site-feedback category, not here.
