a) The Photography forum is part of the Off Topic forum. This particular area has limitations on who can post there. Specifically you need to be a registered member for at least 14 days and have a minimum of 50 posts. Once those two conditions are met, you should be able to post there without issue.

b) Click UserCP in the upper left. Then click the Edit Your Details link again in the upper left. In the middle you'll see your DOB. You can change this setting to hide your DOB and your age.

You don't have 50+ posts so you can't be posting in OT and I'm surprised how you posted on Flint's FS thread

Just read the rules man, that never hurt anyone.

ps you can go to User CP to left and click edit profile and you might be able to not show your age, but what's the big deal?

Not sure what to tell you about the hiding age thing, as far as I know, that's the only option for it. Figured it would work.

As for being flamed for being young... as long as you show people some respect and don't try to come off like you know everything about everything, you'll be fine. That's the problem some younger people here have. They end up trying to prove everything wrong about stuff they know nothing about and get flamed back to hell for it.

Ack, how come he could post on PPC but not OT?

There's plenty of 18-19 year olds on here that don't get a flamed, the majority actually.
It all depends on how you portrait yourself and how well you take criticism.

Didn't check PPC but he should be able to reply to threads in PPC - but not actually start a new thread.

I'm a newbie to scionlife, and I must say that 50+ posts seems a little extreme. Most forums only require like 4 or 5 posts tops, if that. I'll be in my 40's before that happens and probably won't own a Scion anymore.
