    Once you've reached that golden number of 15 posts (that are of excellent quality and contributing top-notch stuff to the forum) you will be able to start conversations (also known as PMs) with other members.

    There are a couple of ways you can do this.

    First off, you can go to your inbox and click 'Start a New Conversation':

    You will be taken to the Conversation composer:

    In the 'Participants' box, start typing the username of the person (or people) you want to have a conversation with. The system will bring up a list of suggestions as you type. If you are adding multiple participants, separate their names with a comma.

    Then, type something useful in the 'Conversation Title...' box, and type your message into the main text editor. You can decide whether other people in the PM can invite more members into the conversation, or whether you want to lock the conversation, by ticking the boxes at the very bottom of the editor.

    When you are happy with the conversation, click 'Start a Conversation' and it will be sent to the other participants. This conversation will also appear in your inbox.

    The other way you can start a conversation is particularly useful if you decide to PM someone while you're browsing threads.

    You can click on any members name, whenever they post, to see this pop-up menu:

    Click 'Start a Conversation' and you will be taken to the same conversation composer, but this time, the participant field will be pre-populated. You can then create your conversation in exactly the same way as above.

    It's worth noting that you must leave at least 30 seconds between each PM you send - the system will not let you send more than one message in any 30 second window. This is an attempt to prevent PM spam.

    It can sometimes take a while for the system to recognise you have 15 posts, which is why you can't send any messages yet.

    However, you haven't read our rules fully, because we specifically tell members that they aren't allowed to spam their way to 15 posts to send PMs, like you were clearly doing:

    Your spammed posts have been deleted. If you need to contact a member but you can't PM, posting on their profile is always helpful, which you appear to have figured out now.

    I have been a member since 2009, but I admit I was distracted. Glad to be back. I guess I have to start over from scratch again now. Thanks for providing this info.

    I do have another question. I tried to change my location from Kentucky to Seattle and it would not do it. Do I have to have 15 posts before I can change that too?

    You should be able to change the location without any requirements. Do you get any particular error message when you try to update/save the profile changes?

    I did get an error message the first time. I am going to try again. I had gotten a message that my password was compromised the moment I signed in! LOL!! So I changed it. My computer security caught it immediately. I will let you know if I am able to switch from Kentucky to Washington State and will get back to you. Thanks my friend.

    I just did it!!! Whoo-hoo! I guess saying anything in the ABOUT ME section is considered spam now. So,. I guess I am not allowed to have anything there any longer, and the old about me no longer fit, so I removed it all. So now I am just a blank space. That works. LOL! Total anonymity is cool beans with me. It adds an air of mystery. LOL! I like it! ha ha! Thanks for you assistance. I appreciate.

    Can I just say congrats on that move? Now that's an upgrade. Ok, yeah, KY has bourbon and horses, but still... Washington!
