I can't post on forums...
I've tried posting from the website and from the program. I've tried logging out and logging back in. I can't comment on any forums except my own. Every time i try, this shows up:
Sorry, some kind of error has occurred: There was an error communicating with the network. Please try again later.
When i try again, it still doesn't work.

Can you link us to a forum you're having these difficulties with, please?

I've got similar problems, activated my email in February and still get:

Nevbox, you do not have permission to access this page.

Are you sure you guys aren't logging in with your steam account vs your forum account which is completely separate?

Also for OP many issues with market, wallet, forums have been happening as Valve's been sorting out things apparently affecting servers. I'd give it a bit and try again later.

I registered 4 days ago here ( - made a separate login and linked it to my steam account. Whenever I try and post I get the following error:

Googz, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:

Your account may not be activated. Please check that you have verified your email address.

Same here, can't access the mysteriously external "Trading" forum after merging my forum and Steam accounts. Been days, now. I can't even see my own profile. When I clicked though the confirmation email, it said I had to wait for a moderator to approve me. I feel like I'm waiting to get on some 3rd rate forum site, not something owned by Valve.

I cant start a new discussion. I get "There was an error creating a new topic: You've been posting too frequently, and can't make another post right now" I've gotten that all day

As you are a limited user, you are not able to create new threads.
