    We've had a fellow Overwatch player sign up last night (Pastorn), and pointed him towards the server password thread. He's unable to access it due to wrong/missing perms. Could one of the forum guru's take a look for us please
    Much appreciated.

    Pastorn, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:
    Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
    If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.

    The account is activated and looks good to go. Pastorn is a 'registered user' Assuming a browser plugin isn't messing with the forum he should be good to go?

    I have found Ublock Origin and other adblockers can sometimes mess with the forum if their options are set aggressively. We don't do adverts or any tracking so it's OK to whitelist us.

    To add to Smilo's answer:

    It means he needs to click on the link in the email sent to him when he set up the forum account. This validates his account and then his account moves from a 'awaiting email validation' user group, to the 'registered users' user group.

    This is actually the most often asked question we get from forum users.
