    Is it me? or do all Link issues being solved in private emails?

    This forum is not very informative for the public reader. Is that on purpose?

    I would guess (but I do not know for sure) there's not a lot of troubleshooting steps posted here because Avid would rather not have instructions for how to solve activation problems plastered all over the forum, as people who are less honest than all of us might use them to try and figure out how to use the software without paying for it.

    Also 9 times out of 10 it requires the user providing a system ID (which you should never publicly post) and for Avid to verify and reset that Sys ID. So it makes sense that this happens off-forum.

    Well that makes sense. Thank you for your replies.

    Still I wish there would be a big sticky banner declaring this limitation of the forum, and clarifying that the issue is not my searching skills. Would save me some time.
