Hi, I'm really new on the site, and when I tried to send a PM it said I can't, and that I need to be a little more active? I looked in the FAQ's and it wasn't any of those, I posted in the thing, it got accepted, and I have no idea what I should do. This is my third(or fourth, I dunno) day on the site, and I don't know what to do. Any help?

Hi Kenan! I think this issue might be related to usergroups. Review this thread and add yourself to the appropriate usergroups.

If that doesn't solve the problem, then get five posts approved by the moderators, then it should work. I've never heard of a sub-5 poster not being able to PM, but that may be interfering with your PM'ing abilities.

I'll also look into your account's permissions and see if something got screwed up there.

Hope this helps! Let me know if the fixes worked. :)

Edit: Perhaps you didn't confirm your account via email yet?

Okay, thanks Evan! I looked at the usergroups and I'm added the the right ones, and I don't thin I've posted 5 posts so far, so that might be it. Do I have to get my account activated by email before PMing? I don't think I did that yet, because I don't have an email so I'm using my parents.

Wait, now I'm confused. I've posted more posts than I've gotten approved... do the mods get notified, or do they just approve it when they see it?

We approve posts whenever we're online. :) We try to be online, but there may be a gap in between you posting and us being able to approve it. We have to read the posts before we can approve them. Once you've had five posts approved, the gap should go away.

If you've had less than 5 posts approved, you won't be able to PM. Once you get more posts approved, the problem should be solved.

Welcome to the site!

Glad we could help! :) What Blaire said. You apparently need five approved posts before PMing. And also, I don't think you need to confirm your account via email. Under our old system, you didn't need to click a link to confirm like some websites do; the mods manually approved new accounts. Nowadays you can just sign up, and I don't think we added a confirmation link. We try to make the process as easy as possible for new users.

You can see how many posts you have by looking on your profile page or by looking to the left on each of your posts under your avatar. Currently, you have six. Some forums, such as Silly Stuff, Mafia et. al. don't count your posts there towards the overall post count.

I have been having the same problem with PM's. I have had six posts approved by moderators, yet I am still blocked from PMing (and on a side note: I can't post in the mafia thread). Help!

Be sure you have added yourself to the appropriate usergroups, explained here. That should help with the posting issue.

As for the PM issues, I'm not sure what's going on, but try clearing your cache and/or using a different browser and seeing if that changes anything.

Whoops! I posted that last post without checking my PM's. I can post in Mafia group but it is handicapping my PM's still because of the post enough requirement. Also, where would I clear my cache?

If you use Firefox, open the menu(top-right corner of the browser), click history, click clear recent history, set time zone to everything, click details, and check ONLY cache. Unless you wanna clear other history too.

Alright, I have posted in excess of 15 times and still it is blocking PM's for me. I think I have discovered the problem. In my Usergroups tab it has me under this group:

Newly registered users
This is a special group, special groups are managed by the board administrators.

Being a member of this group (all members have posted 0-3 times) is what I think is limiting my PM ability. Could one of the admins please remove me from this group so that I can PM? PLEEEEAAASSSSEEE!

Look, I know a moderator approved my earlier post. How hard is it to take me out of the newly registered users group? I would really, really enjoy the ability to private message. I would PM a moderator directly. But I CAN"T! Gosh! Somebody do something.
