Re: Odoo help forum doesn't leave me to ask a question (karma)

Here is the answer to your question from an odoo lead developer:

- Changed the karma levels:
   + a karma of 20 is now required to be able to post or answer a question (yes 
obviously this is a problem for new users, we will lower this later - see below)
   + removed the karma bonus given by posting questions/answers (you should 
only get bonus if someone else upvotes your posts)

- Work-in-progress: we are adding an optional email validation step on the 
forum - if you just signed up and have 0 karma you would get a notice on the 
forum index: you can validate your email and get some karma - just enough to be 
able to post your first question.

We hope to finish the deployment and fix the karma levels accordingly in the 
coming days.

I think this this is due to the spam that has been happening there.  Hopefully they will come up with a solution soon.

Today I tried to ask a question on the forum but when I tried to click on "Ask a Question" an error message appeared telling me that I need 20 karma to do that action. The weird part is that I have exactly 20 karma points on my account, I'm properly logged in and even answering some questions I'm not getting additional karma points which I want to make a question on the site.

I think this new restriction is to avoid spam in the forum and that's great, but it's frustrating for me since I asked questions in the past and have some earned points and want to ask again..

Am I missing something?
Have you the same problem?
Who can I contact to try to solve this issue?
