    I'm a newbie and I want to be able to send PMs but the 15 messages rule doesn't allow me to. I have been getting around the forums but the messages bar stays intact. How do they increase?

    I don't like it when someone joins and all they seem to want to do is have the facility to send PMs.

    Why do you need to send them ? If you're interested in a service or product, post on the thread for the OP to PM you, then you can reply.

    If you'd read the rules, you'd notice Lounge posts don't count, as it was just a way for spammers to bump up their post count by posting drivel.

    You didn't disturb me ( or I'd not have replied ) :)

    It's funny how as @Zwielicht keeps mentioning the number of new accounts who stop posting when they reach the magical 15 posts though.

    I guess some people come here to spam other people with PMs? Or maybe they get what they wanted and leave...

    Read some threads then think twice before sending a PM, don't start by being just an annoing new member.

    So as @MisterF suggested, post on the sellers thread asking them to PM you then you can reply to them.
