Default Why New Users Can't Private Message

After the forum went from subscription to free for everyone, there was a spammer attack that used the PM function to spam a porn video.

Thus began a policy of 50 posts or 30 days to be able to use the Private Messaging feature of the forum. I have seen many complaining and not understanding what this is about, though I have explained it 4 or 5 times in various threads.

Today that barrier was lowered to 10 posts or 12 days.

A lot of people will now find their usernames have changed color and they can now PM.

If you would like to be able to PM before you reach one of those numbers, you can email me at karen@projectavalon.net.
