    How many ABW posts are needed to use PMs?
    I've had a Private Message sitting in my inbox for a few weeks, and I can't read it. If I click on PMs, I get a message indicating that I don't have enough posts to use the PM system (even though I've been a member for many years). How many posts are needed around here to use PMs?

    Here's a take on it from a while back . . . (quoting Kellie)


    ======

    This really shouldn't be so hard folks. I'll try to spell it out though so there's no confusion.

    *There are certain features of this board that you will not be able to use until you have reached an undisclosed post rank.

    *These features include private messages (sending and receiving), adding signitures to your postings and viewing profiles. Again, you will not be able to use these until you have reached an undisclosed post rank.

    *The number of posts required to gain access is NOT to be discussed publicly! This includes speculating as to the number requirement. Any such postings will result in the post being edited or deleted as warranted. Repeated postings of such by the same member may result in ban warnings or ban. Don't do it!

    * Do not attempt to circumvent board priveleges if you have not gained access. This includes manually adding sigs. See Haiko's post regarding this here http://forum.abestweb.com/showthread.php?t=54415 (I've re-stickied the thread).

    Still mostly true, Herb. The number is published now, but it's not concrete. We could make it 1,000,000 for a few of our friends.

    THe primary purpose is to prevent spam, a new member signing up and pm's start flying around.

    Haiko, has his hand on the pulse to know where he wants to set that threshold I'm sure.
