Looks like no new members can PM each other

Post by jburk on Mon Nov 13, 2017 10:03 am

Trying to PM someone results in a message saying that I haven't reached the sufficient number of posts.

It looks like BOL just went off-line this morning, so I'm guessing this forum is about to become a lot busier, can one of the mods decrease the required number of posts required to PM?

The number of posts required is quite low. We need to keep it that way to reduce the number of spam attacks.

Make sense. Thanks. I guess everyone will get their post count sufficiently high simply by commiserating in the "BOL is offline" thread.

Thank you again for the forethought in getting this board up and running. Is it a on a free hosting service, or can I donate a few $ for the upkeep?

No $$ necessary, it's free! But thanks for the thought.

Would it be a pain to update the FAQ? Under "I cannot send private messages" it just says "There are three reasons for this; you are not registered and/or not logged on, the board administrator has disabled private messaging for the entire board, or the board administrator has prevented you individually from sending messages. If it is the latter case you should try asking the administrator why."

Which was confusing until I found this thread. And yes, commenting here to up my posts count Smile
