    I think you need to make 10 posts, before you can send PMs.

    Note to admins - how about a "You need to make X posts, before you can use the PM feature", appearing as the error message, when this happens?

    It is mentioned in the rules that they agree to when signing up. I guess bert_raccoon missed that bit

    How about, "You need to read and understand Forum Guidelines before you can use the PM feature," as the error message?
    There is no best host. There is only the host that's best for you.

    Which leads me to believe that a better alternative is to hack the hack so that members don't confused.

    We'll get workin' on that.

    But without the confusion we wouldn't have threads like this.

    Well considering he joined around the same time you did, I think it is unlikely

    I was close. It's 5 posts before you can PM.
    Members must make five (5) posts before utilizing the PM and system e-mail features.
