    Is this a known issue? Or something like 'you must post 42 times before you can use this forum' kind of thing? Any way to get access without trying to come up with a bunch of filler posts...?

    Error: You do not have permission to view this page or perform this action

    Also, as a recommendation - if the above is the case, the error message when going to this forum should make the problem more clear for the user!

    I'm new but it seems I can't see any links to it, mind if I ask what makes you think that foum area currently exists?
    EDIT: As my post count is over a hundred, at least I think I can confirm that 42 or 100 posts won't get you access, or at least that it didn't get it for me

    Doing a google search 'find team site:forum.unity.com', you have results that link to
    https://forum.unity.com/threads/looking-for-a-developing-team.380233/
    https://forum.unity.com/threads/looking-for-team-programmer-seeking-project-partner.463143/
    According to google, these threads are from this year. Also check out this query https://imgur.com/a/hYE56 All the URLs seem to suggest they are in a 'Non Commercial Collaboration' forum (in this list, many are >1 year old, so maybe this used to exist...?)

    Lastly, if you go to https://forum.unity.com/forums/17/, you see 'you may not access' type of error. Go to a truly non-existent forum like https://forum.unity.com/forums/1734324/, and the error is different, suggesting that forum #17 does exist.

    I take that to mean that it did exist, not that it does. When a subforum is removed from other forums I have used the same thing happens - usually something to do with the content remaining accessible to mods and admins.

    The commercial forums has been succeeded by Unity Connect - try it out!
