Re: won't let me PM

It is extremely frustrating that I can't PM someone. I can't even PM them back. I do understand getting my account going by 5 posts, but I think if a member PMs me I should be able to reply.

Getting your post count up is not hard at all and senseless posts are not going t help anyone, people do check members activity/history posts to get a feel for someone on whether or not to do transactions with them, something to think about.

I agree. I've been scammed by someone and it's not a great feeling. I had to file with pp and blah blah blah. Personally I think the mods have done a good thing by placing a minimum posts in order to pm. Unfortunately there are some people whose sole purpose is to join these forums and to scam people. A buyers/sellers we need to protect ourselves and to protect the integrity of the forums there needs to be rules.

Also, I check through posts of mama's I am buying and trading with especially if they have a low feedback score (admittedly mine's not so high) and/or they are a newer member. For me the combination of feedback/quality and quantity of posts as well as time as a member are what I base my decisions on. Just some more to think about.

Just letting you all know that besides posts in FSOT not counting to post total, neither do posts in Introductions. As NorahsMommy said, my favorite place to up post count is Craft Show and Tell. Who doesn't like to ogle over WAHM loveliness?
