A question from a newbie - is the ability to post PMs automatically driven once the 5-post criteria is met, or is it manually enabled by the Administrator team?
Automatically as soon as you have made 5 posts  :tu:

Would be better to try to be a part of the community and sell the knife rather than just joining to sell something :salute:

You have your 5 posts now so you should be able to reply. Try and join in some of the conversations  :cheers: you might find that you enjoy the camaraderie  :salute:

Hello, will I be able to reply to someone's message if I don't have 5 posts? I wanna buy something and might need to reply to the offer.

Thanks!

Its a wonderful community so I'd also encourage y'all to engage.  While I understand this is a captive audience for merely selling off items I'll encourage those who come here to simply do that to read https://forum.multitool.org/index.php/topic,21414.0.html

It'd be wonderful if you'd contribute if your sell goes thru  :hatsoff:.

Just here to say 'Hi' as rules suggested.   :hatsoff:

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:

Welcome new members.  I thought it would be a good idea to repost the above ^^^.  There is some very good advice how to go about getting to the 5 posts needed to access the PM feature. 

Post 1 can be as Boss says in the thread with the item you'd like. 

Post 2 can be introducing yourself.

Post 3 could be a response to the sale thread letting the seller know you are working your way to 5 posts. 

Post 4 could be a post in your introduction post thanking folks for responding. 

I'm pretty sure post 5 wont be that hard once you've got the ball rolling. 

Again, welcome new members.  This is a great community and once you get posting you might see that.  You will also be in the "loop" if and when something else goes up for sale that you like.

Ah, I was just trying to find a 'contact the admins' page to see if I needed to be a chartered member to send messages or somesuch, so thanks for the clarification!  :-)
