Cannot reply to recently started topic

I started a topic this morning and am unable to find a way to reply - i am curious if this is due to my partial access?

the thread that i started is:
https://premium.wpmudev.org/forums/topic/comments-issue-i-seem-to-have-an-issue-where-the-comment#post-506481

but if i try and access it from my dashboard > community> recent topics - i am unable to reply on that link - I am going to start another topic in hopes to find a solution to my current issues. Possibly I just don't know how to use the support forum yet? Thank you in advance for any insight.
