First of all, I'm sorry if this has already been answered. I checked the FAQs but perhaps I missed something. I think I'm at around -7 now since I rated a user. This has happened because my forum became more popular than I expected when I signed up. As such, I received an alert about the -10 and my forum being disabled. I signed up at the portal forum sometime around 24 hours ago. Now I'm approved and will start posting on other forums. I hope that my own forum will be activated again soon too. Thanks.
