    Cannot use the PM function =S

    There's a user I want to pm, but there doesn't seem to be a pm button the person's profile, and every time I try to go to my inbox to manually send a pm to him, it says I don't have the privileges to view my inbox. Why is that?

    You need 5-10 posts to get PM privileges.

    5-10? Does it vary from person to person?

    I'm confused. How can it be 5-10 and not vary from person to person? Wouldn't it be a static number then?

    If it won't let you now, just find some topics and start posting. It won't take you long to get to the point where you can PM.

    You need 5 posts to get the pm function, but people don't always get kicked into the usergroup that allows pming instantly once they hit that. You can make 5 posts and just wait for a while, or you can keep on posting, and after a bit, you'll be able to send pms.

    I tried to send private messages to a couple of people myself, and I thought they weren't going through - but I went back into the message composer just now and I saw the check box option to "save a copy of my message to Sent Items"... no wonder nothing showed up in Sent Items after sending messages, lol.

    I don't believe I get a confirmation box telling me my message has been sent either, which just added to my confusion. But I think I've got this figured out now...

    Hey man, I just don't pay attention to these things. Why did I just start a thread with the same subject?
    Thank you all!

    If you're like me, you'll get so addicted to posting you'll rack up fifty+ posts before you even care about PM'ing.

    Can't send private messages.. etc.

    Hi,

    I'm a registered user but the forum is not letting me send private messages and such. Is there something I need to do?

    Thanks.

    Just for future reference, you could just refer to this thread in the future.

    You have well over the required post count. Just give it a little time to boot ya into the user group that has PMs enabled.

    Bumping several threads about the topic isn't going to make that happen any faster.

    PM function isn't enabled until you have 10 posts.

    You can PM after 5 posts, but for whatever reason, it can take the system a little while to move you into the "Registered: Can PM" group. So, sometimes it doesn't hit until 6-10 posts.

    We have this in place because we used to have a real problem with users getting spam PMs. This way, someone actually has to stick around and post a bit if they want to spam.

    moving users to the "can pm" usergroup happens via a scheduled crontab
