Can somebody explain to me why I wasn't able to post reply's to topics? I know that I'm a basic member, but I haven't read anywhere that there is a limit of posts per day till you're an advanced member. If there is, could you show me the link so I know when I'm able to post again.

Greetings, I would like to know at what point will I be able to post comments and posts without having them be hidden first and approved by a moderator? I have a lot of comments that could increase my reputation but are stuck on back-order and hidden in terms of being approved.

Also, by "post" do you mean actual posts and comments, or just posts? Also, I have a decent number of comments on back-order that I would appreciate be approved or not. I appreciate your response.

Posts are replies in the forum topics, not comments on someone's profile. If you look at your profile, all your posts have been approved.

If you are an Advanced member (with 25+ posts in the forums) you can send a PM (private message). Here is how:

Go to the member's profile page. Next to their username is a box that says "Message." Click on Message and write what you want to say and click the "Send" button. Wait for the member to reply to your PM.

If you want to join a club, please read the description of the club. If it says CLOSED that means you need to be an Advanced member (if no other requirements are needed) with at least 25 posts in the forums. The different clubs are discussed here:
