Have you tried his suggestion? In what way did it not work? Any more information you can provide may be helpful. Pointless "please help me" posts on the other hand are not helpful.

You have acrued so many infractions in such a short amount of time that one more will set you read-only for several weeks.

I was out of the office, bumping didn't help me answer faster.

If we don't answer immediately, wait! We are not "on-call". At the very least, post something you tried which didn't work and it's effects. Any more useless "help me" posts will get you banned.

Looking now.
