Have they been disabled or do I just not have that privilege? I don't see the option anywhere.

I'm over 5 now, so when will my private messages be activated?

I'd shoot for 10 just in case :D.

Just make random posts that just say "IDX RULEZ!"

Until now, i still don't know what private messages do for?

Send other members private messages. The reason they're private is because it's only between you two and no one else can read it. Unless they decide to be a dick and post whatever embarassing message you sent them and all the responses to it.

o_o I really didn't know I need 5 posts to able PM someone. I'm glad I checked here. XD

It's a spam prevention method. This way bots can't sign up and start sending mass PMs.

I've only been PMed by 2 different people. And I've been here longer than what my Join Date says.

Yeah, this would be good info to have in the FAQ. I had wondered if PMs were disabled, but then I saw mentions about using them, so I was wondering if I was just blind or something. ;)

IDX

Nah, just go into random thread and post "IDX RULEZ". I'm sure you'll get that post count in no time :D.

I meant he could double post in that thread. He still needs to do it everywhere.

Just a post at a time.

Well, this answered my question... I guess I'll have to be true to my username now and go make a few, quick posts.

and are we had to Quote in all the Thread in order to Replay?, I cannot find Replay in the thread

You mean "reply"? There should be a module at the very bottom of the page that says "Quick Reply" where you can type a message and then quickly reply by hitting "Post Quick Reply," or you can Go Advance to gain access to features such as the rich text editor or the ability to attach a file.

WHy do I need 5 posts to be able to send PMs, your registration system is hard enough to get through, you don't know how much I spent only to be able to post this message, what is it with your paranoia, you're not going to be assaulted by terrorist spamming bots you already have captcha reg. Now I could fulfill someones request but this stupid system makes near impossible.

Agent0042

Actually, you'd be surprised how often we get spam, even with all that in place.

Don't feel bad, I haven't had too many myself. Just be friendly and eventually people will PM you.

Ah! No wonder. Thank you ever so much. I also hope it doesn't have to do with how long my account's been inactive. Oh dear...

Another question, how does one send visitor messages? I can't seem to find a box or a button to the effect anywhere on the page of the person I'm trying to get at. I could concievably just do the 5 posts and wait for PM activation, but there's a soundtrack I'm very impatient to get. XD;

Can these be responses to other people's posts or do you have to start threads? I have done more than five reply posts and still cannot PM.

Have you checked that the option "Save a copy of sent messages in my Sent Items (http://forums.ffshrine.org/private.php?folderid=-1) folder by default" in General Settings (http://forums.ffshrine.org/profile.php?do=editoptions) is selected?

Also, there's a function to Edit Posts, you better use that.
