Thread: Pming

  1. #1
    Why everytime I go to my PM's I get this...

    Sorry, an error occurred. If you are unsure on how to use a feature, or don't know why you got this error message, try looking through the help files for more information.

    The error returned was:

    You Do not have the required amount of posts to use the PM system
    When for the past few days I've been able to go into my PM's without a problem.

    The PM system has just been disabled for all members with less than 20 posts, as an anti-spam measure.

    Sorry for the inconvenience, but the PM system is open to abuse; with this measure we can limit its misuse.

    Does that mean that I wouldn't be able to send a PM to a new member either?

    that rule almost sounds good but I see problems like what titey asked and what if they spam 20 replies just to pm someone
    think it could cause more problems

    I wasn't thinking of them spamming just to be able to use PMs.... but yer right, that could be an issue.

    I was more concerned wif the fact that it appears that I can PM sheerblade for example.... does that mean that he couldn't read that PM till he'd accumulated 20 posts?

    There have been a couple of times in the past that I've PMd someone who was new in order to try an' help them out. Usually it was because they'd inadvertently done/said somefing that might raise eyebrows, an' I didn't want to appear to be chastising them on the open board. Now though it would appear that doing such a thing won't be possible.

    I think this could be crazy, especially if it stops newcomers from reading PMs which someone else has sent to them - it just means they will have to spam in order to get 20 posts so they could read and write PMs.

    the solution to this is SPAM

    if you're a newbie and need to ask a question, the only way to ask a smart person a question is to spam to 20 posts and then pm.

    is this what's intended?
