Thread: You Do Not Have The Required Amount Of Posts

  1. #1
    So someone sent me a PM in response to one of my questions, and when I try to check it, it says... You Do not have the required amount of posts to use the PM system. So my question is two fold; Why does the message occur? Do I have to start posting all kinds of useless posts just to get my post count up?

    Not being a stranger to forums, I tend to go in and read enough to not sound like a complete newb before I start posting all over the place. So Can we fix this, or should I just start posting "ok" msgs all over?

    Well I have 6 now and it seems to work now. So either someone heard my complaint and fixed it, or more likely I hit the number.


    What is this functionality and why is it in place. Seems silly to me. IMO. :dunno:

    6 posts are required, well it's not entirely useless.
    We've had some folks sign up an account and then start spamming with pm... without making one post, that's impossible now.

    We have plenty of those already. One thing you should learn it's the quality not quantity of posts. Please don't go posting 'shit' as it was said just to rack up post count, shouldn't take you long to get 6 decent posts. Make a good 1st impression, not a bad one.

    thats a bit miss justice if its a spammer spamming Pms I'm sure the spammer wouldn't have a problem knocking off 6 spam posts in 1 minute when there are no mods online to suspend him/her
