How many posts do I need to be able to send a Private Message?
You will need a total of 6 posts to be able to send a Private Message. We have done this so as to prevent postbots and spammers from sending mass Private Messages. Posting is very easy!
Start a thread in the Introductions Forum - tell us about yourself. Join a conversation in the Off Topic where many of our members hang out. There are so many places to contribute a post that 6 posts will come and go very quickly!
