    I'm new here. I have a suggestion about updating a rule. The rule for newbie -"Sorry , You Can't Send PM until You Have 15 Posts" is troubling me.

    As I wrote before, I just got here...so, I don't have any posts right now. I have an important PM in my inbox and it's pretty urgent to reply that message. But I can't. So, I gotta have 15 posts now to be able to reply. But if I try to do that in a hurry, some posts will be irrelevant.

    So, I would suggest to update the rule so that the limit is just for sending PM for the first time, not for replying. Hope you understand...

    Don't push it, first read some stuff, post something, try to get to know some BHW members and after that you can think of sending out PMs and changing BHW rules :D

    An frankly 15 posts is not that much.

    the 15 post rule is there for a reason
    to cut down new members joining to make post spam.

    as you are new here, have no sales threads no posts
    what could be so important the rule should be changed for
    you

    It's just a suggestion considering my situation. I'm not forcing anyone. And I'm not here to prove my importance too soon. Thanks.
