Thread: Can't send PM?

    Can't send PM?

    Hi. I can't seem to send a PM. I get a message saying I don't have that privilege. Can someone help me to resolve this so I can send a private message? Thanks!

    There used to be a minimum of 50 posts or 180 days or both or something like that. These days, who knows??

    Thanks. For what it's worth, I have done very little posting. So I am not under that restriction. It says I could have had permissions removed or I need to verify my account (which I thought I had done).

    Any other thoughts?

    Thanks!

    You misunderstood. A minimum of 50 posts means you have 42 to go--since you have only 8 right now--and then you can PM, if that is still the rule. Back in the dark ages, there was a problem with spam via PM, hence the rule.

    Ahh, I did miss that. So that means that I can't PM anyone until I have 50 posts. Got it, thanks. Never heard of such a thing but it is what it is!

    Use the next 42 wisely.

    If you tell me who you want to PM and what the message is, I'll PM the person for you.
    That's our second Arby's in town. Some say it's better, the fries are curlier, though I wouldn't know. I'm loyal to the original.

    Thanks everyone. Now I just have 41 posts to go. Maybe I can post 'thank you' 41 times and I'll be set! : )

    That would be unwise.

    I believe that posts in The Longest Thread Ever don't count towards your total. But if you won't to post there anyway, bring cookies.
