    you have made several posts, but forgot to read the board rules, didn't you? here they are for you: https://filesharingtalk.com/vb3/boardrules/
    this one's for free: you have to wait at least a month to be able to send PMs.
    Amongst other things, this was made to try to keep anxious traders or beggars lurking too much in this forum.

    Despite what is said by those who "know", it is becoming increasingly obvious that account upgrades do not take place until the first qualifying post is made after the probationary period. That's often in a thread like this one.

    I believe it is done so that no action is performed on dormant accounts.
    .
    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

    Nahh, it's not like that. Here are the requirements:

    • 30 days since joined
    • Minimum 2 posts

    It then takes maximum 1 hour after the last of these requirements have been met in order to promote their usergroup.

    The User Promotion 'Scheduled Task' runs at xx:25 hourly.
    That means 1:25, 2:25, 3:25, ..., 13:25, 14:25, ... etc.

    -----

    Look at this user for example: yipie
    It is an extreme case.
    He had been here for min 30 days and made his second post at 4:33pm.
    He then posted at 5:24pm saying that his PM didn't work (usergroup not promoted yet).
    At 5:25pm the scheduled task ran.
    At 5:54pm (I see this from his post stating "I PM'd you") he realized that he had PM access.



    edit: I just set it to run twice per hour. xx:25 and xx:55.

    edit2: Shit sorry Lynx you were right (sort of).
    I just noticed this: http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showthread.php?p=1464881
    Basically it only promoted users who have been active on the forum since the last time the promotion task ran. This is just stupid and I can fix it when I get a chance.

    I think they want PM access for BT trades and stuff like that, and then disappear.

    Yep. The majority of the users here seem to be the silent type that just post in BT trades and never quite post outside those forums. These rules help tone down the masses, but there is still a decent amount.
