PM system, when is it activated for new users?

Post by keropi » Wed Apr 17, 2019 5:16 pm

Hiya!

I have a question about the PM system - for new users like me when it is activated?
Should I ask for it to be enabled?
I wanted to ask this privately to the admin team but I can't even PM them...
thanks!

Normally, after 25 posts but if you can show that you're an all-round good egg, the admins will enable your PM's early in response to a heart-felt request on here..... :wink:

You can ask for PMs to be enabled by using the Contact us link (envelope icon) at the bottom of every page. This notifies the admin’s.

The reason that it is disabled by default, is due to past problems with spammers misusing it.
