Webcraft Error: Cannot Post topic

Hey folks, user Michael Davis is getting the following screenshot in Webmaking 101 when he tries to submit.

From his email: “I can’t post anything. It will not allow me to post in either the challenge area or help. Here are the messages I am getting.”

Screenshot attached.

The first error is most likely caused because they haven’t validated their email address on p2pu.org.

Wrt the second error - that message is displayed while backups are happening which only takes a few seconds, so if a user gets that warning they refresh the page and all should be fine.

Btw - is this the user that couldn’t post: https://p2pu.org/en/micdav11/?
