How to fix posting and replying problems in Google help communities.


How can I restore my posting and replying privileges in Google help communities?

I have been unable to post or reply in any Google help community for several weeks. It seems that I have lost the permissions to do so, but I do not know why. I have not violated any community guidelines or terms of service. I cannot contact Google support because I cannot post anything. What can I do to solve this issue?


Google help communities are online forums where users can ask questions, share tips, and get support from other users and experts. They are a great way to learn more about Google products and services, and to troubleshoot any issues you may encounter.

However, sometimes you may find yourself unable to post or reply in any Google help community, even though you have not done anything wrong. This can be very frustrating and confusing, especially if you need urgent help or want to contribute to the community.

There are several possible reasons why you may lose your posting and replying privileges in Google help communities, and different ways to restore them. Here are some of the most common scenarios and solutions:

  • You are not signed in to your Google account. This may seem obvious, but sometimes you may forget to sign in or accidentally sign out of your Google account. To post or reply in Google help communities, you need to be signed in to a Google account that has a public profile and a verified email address. To check if you are signed in, look for your profile picture or initial at the top right corner of the community page. If you see a sign-in button instead, click on it and enter your Google account credentials. If you do not have a Google account, you can create one for free [here](
  • You are using a restricted or managed account. Some Google accounts, such as those created by schools, organizations, or parents, may have restrictions or policies that prevent you from posting or replying in Google help communities. For example, your account may be set to only allow access to certain websites or apps, or to block certain types of content or communication. To find out if your account is restricted or managed, go to []( and look for a banner or message that says “This account is managed by …” or “Some settings are hidden or managed by …”. If you see such a message, you may need to contact your administrator or parent to request permission to post or reply in Google help communities.
  • You have violated the community guidelines or terms of service. Google help communities have rules and policies that you need to follow to maintain a respectful and helpful environment for everyone. These include not posting spam, abusive, hateful, or illegal content, not impersonating others, not sharing personal or sensitive information, and not violating the intellectual property rights of others. If you break these rules, you may receive a warning, a temporary suspension, or a permanent ban from the community. To check if you have received any actions or notifications from the community, go to []( and look for any messages from Google help communities. If you see a message that says “You have been suspended from posting in Google help communities”, you can click on it to see the reason and duration of your suspension. If you think you have been suspended or banned by mistake, you can appeal the decision by filling out [this form](
  • You have encountered a technical glitch or bug. Sometimes, you may lose your posting and replying privileges in Google help communities due to a technical issue or error that is not related to your account or behavior. This can happen for various reasons, such as a network problem, a browser issue, a cache or cookie error, or a server outage. To troubleshoot this possibility, you can try the following steps:
  • Refresh the community page or reload it in a new tab or window.
  • Clear your browser cache and cookies, or try using a different browser or device.
  • Check your internet connection and make sure it is stable and secure.
  • Check the [Google Workspace Status Dashboard]( and the [Google Help Community Announcements]( to see if there are any known issues or outages affecting Google help communities.
  • Report the issue to the Google help community team by filling out [this form](
  • Hopefully, one of these solutions will help you restore your posting and replying privileges in Google help communities. If none of them work, you can still get help from other sources, such as the [Google Help Center](, the [Google Support Contact Us Page](, or the [Google Feedback Tool](
