You should be able to pm or at least reply to a pm as a newbie

I'm not sure the post count that makes it so you can pm, I got 10 post count and still couldn't. (I think a few of those posts were removed? Maybe because they weren't quality posts lmao).

In my opinion allow anyone to pm but limit the pm's per hour a bit more, or maybe mod the site to allow 1pm per personal message they have received if they are not up to the correct post count yet.

IDK just a suggestion, it's really just a minor nuisance haha

you dont have 10 posts so you dont fall in the group that can send PMs. you need 10 good posts, if they are not quality posts we do hold the right to delete them at any time.

we do have a limit per hour but it did not solve the issue of users spamming users via PM so we had to take other measures.

Just for you to know, some of your posts were actually deleted because *most* of them were useless, you were bumping kinda old topics with not useful replies.

We are working on some adjustments to membergroups to help curve PM spam that occurs.  You should be able to send PMs now while we work on these adjustments.

You're also only one post away from achieving the basic rank too. It's not very hard to get at least 10 meaningful posts on this forum...
