Becoming "established member"?

  • I have a pm waiting that I cannot read.

    Can you change the settings on the board so that you are not restricted from reading or responding to a pm someone sends you, just because you are a new member?

    Perhaps you could set it so that you can't initiate a pm until you are "established," instead?

    How many posts make one an "established member"?

    Thanks!

  • I manually set your join date a few days back -- now you can access the PM system.

    It's an anti-spammer measure. Otherwise a spammer could join the forum and without any delay PM hundreds or thousands of members. No thanks!

    By the time the X days passes, they will have moved on and forgotten about CathInfo. That's the idea.

    Ok, thanks. I was able to get it now.

    Of course you're in limbo.  We can't even tell if you're a boy or a girl!

    Can you tell me if you're a male or female, so I can place you in the right group?
