    Hi all.

    Just wondered how the PM system works. I've had access to it before, but now it's gone. If I click a link via the FAQ's page I just get the page below...Please note: I am a registered member and logged in.

    http://www.thephotoforum.com/forum/private.php?do=newpm

    Has the PM function been temporarily disabled, or is it only available under certain conditions.

    Thanks

    Sark

    Not sure I understand the problem....I clicked on the link and it brought up the template for sending someone a PM, which is what you wanted. :confused:

    Yes, it's a new anti-spam measure that we have put into place. New members are not initial given access to the PM option.

    Don't worry, it's not personal. :D

    Fair enough. As long as I know it's not my system.... Is there a page that highlights the new regulations?

    Cheers

    Yes could we please be told the number of posts we need to be a able to pm.

    Also I have noticed that whilst I can't pm I can still e-mail members who allow e-mails from members of the forum.

    I know I have not been here that long so there might be a time limit as well as a posting limit - but 230 posts and the pm section is still not active for me.
    I just wonder if something might have gone amiss

    well, a limit above 200 is a bit too high, maybes something went wrong?

    some people do not reach 200 after a year ...

    But then again, you've only been a member for a week, so maybe that's the problem? Maybe there's an 8+ day membership requirement

    Seriously??? That's not right!

    I was thinking it was like, 10 posts that you had to have...or something like that...I can't remember. I have to run to work, if someone doesn't look into it for you, I'll try and remember to find out tonight.

    *edit* it might be a time limit, like Anti said. I know I should know this since I'm a mod, but I simply can't remember right now.
