According to /faq.html#faq_tp_start_here_newforum , “New Members can reply to any thread, in any forum, but can only start new threads in the Newbie Forum. Once 20 posts have been made, and after 14 days from registration, new threads can be started anywhere and an avatar can be uploaded.”
It looks like you’ve made more than 20 posts now, and you’re on the clock for the 14 days. If I recall, it is not without precedent that a new member has started a thread under the Newbie Forum and a moderator has moved it to another forum for them. You can always ask. You should know that if you want to post a picture of your penis, that belongs under Member Pics and should NOT be posted in the Newbie Forum.
Please also share your experience with deconditioning. There are a good number of existing threads on that.
Thank you guys for the kind help. I really appreciate it. I guess I’ll ask a mod ASAP.
