    Hello there! I am a newbie on the physics forums.
    I saw a thread which I wanted to answer because I had a better answer than the one given in that thread but the thread is closed and it is written there that 'you have insufficient privileges to reply here.' How do I get sufficient privileges? Thread - https://www.physicsforums.com/threads/sucking-cranberry-juice-out-of-a-hose.607126/
    Thank you

    Once a thread is closed, you cannot post to it.

    What about the privilege statement?

    Only mentors and the owner have sufficient privileges to post to a closed thread and it's usually only done by accident (a mentor is composing a post while another mentor is closing the thread), or a mentor needs to add an explanation of why the thread was closed, it is not done to continue the discussion.
