FTL forum Private Message limitation

Postby JakeShifter » Mon Feb 04, 2013 4:28 pm

Can anyone tell me how many posts, topics or replies must be made before i can access the PM system? it simplay says that i "may be a new user and have not unlocked this feature".

It is part of spam prevention. While most spamm accounts and posts are invisible to regular users, they appear and are removed/banned daily.

New users are blocked from using most regular features until they reach a certain number of posts after which they are no longer "new users", and may access all forum features. The entire process is automated except for moderator approval of posts.

I believe that I could pm after ten posts but I'm not sure.
