I just registered this morning and this is my first post.
Every page I look at has the same message about not being entitled to view this page.
Why is this????
Make that not AUTHORIZED to view the page.

You can send somebody the URL for a particular message on SciForums and they can open it up and read it without going through the logon process. All the logon does is allow you to post messages, not read them.
Some search engines will actually find topics on SciForums and let people navigate right to them, completely bypassing the logon. That's actually how I discovered the website myself.

I think that there are certain issues with the forum software since the site has been restored. I think that what is likely going on is that Dave hasn't had the time to really dig into everything to get everything back up to perfect running order. There are a number of problems that are popping up.
I've not seen the Authorization thing. But others have reported it here: http://www.sciforums.com/showthread.php?t=46937
THere's a problem with how many threads are shown in some of the forums. Because of this, guests can only see a few pages of a forum and this has to be curtailing google searches.
I've tried using the google search bar at the bottom of the main page, but it gives an error page.
The logout link doesn't work correctly. One has to go through an additional page to logout.
The icon is not the Sciforums "Peace" symbol but rather a generic bulletin board icon.
I bet there's more things going wrong that have not been reported or noted as well.
Hopefully Dave will eventually find time to take care of these things.
But. I've not seen ths Authorization error page.
Give a link to the page that gives that message.
