Inability to send Private Messages

Post by 107208579 » Thu Mar 06, 2014 6:55 pm

I'm unsure what the restrictions are but it seems that I'm not able to send PMs to other forum messages.The User Control Panel states the following: We are sorry, but you are not authorised to use this feature. You may have just registered here and may need to participate more to be able to use this feature.

Does anybody have more information how I can get 'elite' member status? :)

Hi there, first off, welcome to the boards. I believe that once you hit the 10 posts mark you will have full access to regular forum member functions.

Thanks!

I haven't been on a message board in so long, was that in the FAQ somewhere?

I believe it was... but it has been some time since i looked over it, which i should probably do soon to revise and double check.

Ah, so that's why I can't send PMs.

Hi there,

I just joined over the weekend and have tried to post but am still waiting for then to be approved. I'm not sure if I need to post a minimum number for them to go through or even 10 times before I can contact anyone, including an admin to see if I'm missing anything more. :( Also, while I appreciate there being a minimum of posts before you can PM, could there be an exception made for contacting regarding the sale of an item? I feel compelled to contribute to the forum just to see if an item still exists, and even then, the posts are not actually being posted.

Thanks so much!

I'm having this issue as well, and agree that it's frustrating to not be able to circumnavigate this rule when it comes to sales. I have a piece that I'm trying to buy, but need to make more posts in order to even reply to the seller's pm! Oh well.

yeah, noob here, was having the same problem... It would be good if this didn't apply to the For Sale section, but i can see how that would be tricky to implement.

anyway, nine more posts to go...;)

Well, it is always good to build on relationships and such with fellow boardies before buying or selling goods on these boards.. this makes for less drama, and unfortunate situations... hopefully.

Now get to posting!

That's true, but now I'm in the awkward position of not being able to reply to a PM sent to me.

I'll put a note up on my post in the Looking to Buy section, which (heh) will also get me another post closer to that magic number...

Awesome. Only a few more to go. I've already received a trade offer. Sucks when you cant respond, yo.

The point of the 10+ post is to get people more involved with the boards and participate. Not just coming here and dumping your toys or just here to buy toys. BE ACTIVE PEOPLE! :rock: :rock: :rock:

Until you have 10 posts, all your posts must be pre-approved by me. I have approved your posts but i also suggest perhaps getting engaged in all the happenings on here as well to get your post count up. This will also help out a great deal in getting to know your fellow boardies as well as building a good rep for selling items on here.
