Default How many psost before I can PM?

I am still not quite sure what the threshold is before I am allowed to do a PM? Is it length of memebership, or is it number of posts, or both? Do I need to have at least 30 posts and get past Junior member?

I really just want to ask Bob Z. a question about a watch he had for sale & see if he still has it. But, I cannot PM him, so I don't think he realizes I left him a question in the forum where he posted a watch for sale. Or, maybe he does not have the watch anymore, not sure.

Thanks.
Mark Stolle

In an effort to slow the PM spam bots that occasionally try to "join", we limit the ability for new members to PM, until they've enough "posts" under their belts.

Talking

Since I'm mostly here to learn, and won't have much to contribute (at least at first) I'm having the same issue.

I found some information for a member that was requested in the main forum and posted it into their thread. The thread is now about a month old and I have a feeling the thread starter might have given up and won't go back and find what I've provided. I'd PM otherwise, but can't.

I'd also like to ask a member about repairing/ servicing my early war hamilton 992B (i took a spill while it was in my pocket and now it runs fast) but I can't PM that person either.

I really don't want to go to a bunch of threads that I find interesting and only contribute "cool" or something equally useless- will I be able to PM after a certain amount of time or do I have to sit it out until I eventually have enough PMs? It seems like both have been mentioned above...

The minimum post to PM explains it. Too bad I didn't know that. I joined when I saw a watch I am chasing on watchrecon. I spent too much time trying to figure out how to PM the seller when I could have just replied. Missed out by literally 1 minute

Default Oohh, this explains a lot.

I'm new here, and I found many interesting parts and watches in the exchange forum, but can't seem to PM the person. This explains a lot, well, its better to get acquainted first then.

Having the same problem but it's probably due to low post count.

Me too. Isnt it better to get several "captcha"-fields to apply in the registration form? That way you won't get any spam bots that register, i believe.

From memory, at around 30 posts you cease being a Junior Member, and become a Member. Above 999 posts you become a Senior Member, or an old fart like me!



Best regards,

Dave.
I have to post 30 times before i can pm to purchase a watch? Not being a jerk, genuinely asking if there is a way around that.

Well, put your email address into your profile (it won't be shown) and then people can email you from your profile.

Anyhow, I think the bar is only 10 posts before you can PM.

If you look at your Public Profile you will see that under your Contact Info other members can't PM you!

Try clicking onto Quick Links and then Edit Options.

Under Private Messaging tick the Enable Private Messaging box and then Save Changes.
