Getting Private Message Privileges

New to the site and find things a little confusing.
How do you reach the 6 post minimum to be able to send private messages? Does posting quick replies count towards the 6 post minimum?

My Mood:
Posting in non fsot threads will count towards your post count. Wether or not they are meaningful posts...if we just see you answer "yep" or simple one worded responses we may have to remove them.

You can earn the 6 posts doing quick or advance replies to any threads in the main chat areas. The fsot and intro areas do not count towards the ability to pm. Does that help clear things up?

Similar post number question

I've made as many as 8 posts in a day, but only gone up 1 post in my post count, why is that?

Re: Getting Private Message Privileges

If you post in the for sale or trade section, it doesn't count. If you post in the intro section, it doesn't count. If you post in other areas, like parenting, of topic, pregnancy, etc. you should be able to watch your post count go up with each post you make.

Only one of them was in the forum. All the others look like they were in the FSOT, and those don't count towards the minimum.
