I recently made some changes to the private messaging code on the forums. It should not affect the vast majority of people. However, those will fewer than 15 posts will now be unable to use the private messaging system. This is because we have had issue with potential spammers getting around the spam filter and soliciting people via PM.

On the old VBulletin version of NCH&F we had this restriction. It was lifted when we went to Xenforo because of better spam detection and prevention.

So, post up here if you can't sent private messages. Thanks!

I can't post PMs, and also cannot reply to classified ads

This is rule number 8 from the classified forum rules.

8. You must have a minimum post count of 50 to post threads in the classifieds. Do not place a classified ad elsewhere in the forum due to not having the required post count.

You also have to have 10 posts to send a d receive PMs.

OK. I am not trying to place a classified ad, I am trying to respond to one.

Is the 10 post count requirement for PMs new? I have PM'd before.

This girl keeps sending me private messages asking about rod stiffness. I read more into hunting. I don’t know the answers to those fishing questions.

Thanks. I just re-read Tipmoose's post. I misinterpreted it on the first read. I thought he was saying that the 15 post limit was a glitch and he would help us with this problem.

The 15 post rule for PMs was always present...we just started enforcing it about two or three months ago.
