New members and Private Messages (PM)
« on: October 31, 2014, 09:50:07 PM »
To all the new members here, and to anyone who may be looking to make a deal with new members, please read the following.

We have had a problem with new members signing up on the forum and PMing spam to members, so we have attempted to combat this by removing the abilities of members with less than 5 posts to send Private Messages.  For legitimate signups, making five posts shouldn't be a problem, even if you are in a hurry to buy a hot commodity. 

We have set it up so that members with less than 5 posts can receive Private Messages, so a post in a sale or trade thread saying "I'm interested, please send me details" should get the ball rolling for you.

I'm sorry we have had to restrict people like that.  If there are any issues, please feel free to post them in the Q&A Forum and we will all do our best to help sort through it.

Of course, by the time you post "I'll take it" in a trade forum, post a hello here in the New Members Forum and ask about PM's in the Q&A forum you'll be almost there.....   :cheers:

Def

Hi Scott
Received your PM but for some strange reason I can't send a PM back.

Dave, two more posts here (5 posts minimum) and your PM's will work  :tu:

Hello Grant,

Thank you for your explanation - I too was wondering why I'm as yet unable to PM a member.

Regarding the explanation...I suppose, I'm compelled to agree with Grant  :D

Cheers, nj

Multitool.org is always an open book to members.  I am sorry that this inconvenience has to be in place for legitimate members, and I am open to other suggestions if anyone has any.  :D

Force new users to participate in a "Ninja Warrior" type obstacle course if they want to send PM's before they make 5 posts?

That would be pretty cool indeed, but financially and logistically it could be a bit difficult.

Sounds good Sir. This is my first time as I've been more of a lurker so hopefully you'll remember my sign in name and be free in correcting any mistakes I make, no worries.

We tend to be a pretty forgiving bunch here so I wouldn't worry too much if I were you.  Welcome to the forum- crank out four more posts ad this won't affect you at all!

Click on the person's avatar and a few small icons should show up.  Click on the one that looks like a comic book style word balloon and that will allow you to PM that person.  Or, you can click on "My Messages" in the green bar at the top of your screen and that will take you to the Message Center where you can review your messages or send one.

I don't consider it to be an inconvenience at all, merely good management.
No problem with complying with such a reasonable request.
