    Because you only have 13 posts. @magicsecret

    I’m going to voice my opinion about PM. In many cases, the questions you have or the comments will be valuable to others on this forum. I am not sure why everyone new here feels the need to jump to PM so quickly.

    Just post your questions or comments on the right forum. You will get a larger variety of answers than in PM anyway.

    Agreed. I'm glad someone else mentioned this first, because I've been thinking about this for a while. :)

    I should also point out that PMs should only be sent to people who are amenable to receiving them. Unsolicited PMs are tantamount to spam and are a violation of the rules of the forum.

    Yes, and to emphasize yet again, spammy posts will be deleted and a warning issued.

    It should already be enabled, since your profile does list you as a junior member.

    Thank you, @skieurope . Once my status changed, it was available.

    I better start posting.
    We tend to delete posts from new users that look like the only purpose is to build post count. That's exactly what I did here.

    The 15 post minimum was doubly confusing when someone PM'd me and I was able to respond, but later couldn't see how to start a PM thread. Thanks for the info.

    16 posts, but still show as just a "New Member" - would like to be able to PM.

    @afterp89, log out and then log in again and you should be set.

    Silly requirement. Probably could have found a better way to make sure a user was not sending spam.
