    For some unknown reason I'm not able to start a private conversation (thread). I don't see an option to start one. Is there a PM limit for newbies? or is this happening only to me?

    All I have is just 21 conversations, I don't think such small number would be a limit for newbie accounts. TIA.

    Thanks BigBuddy for the quick response. I was able to PM a couple of people recently, how come I was not able to do it now?

    It wasn't just people PM spamming other members, but quite a few people would also join the forum and create 15 junk posts/threads just to PM people. It's considered post count inflation here.

    50 posts is not that hard to reach, just post helpful suggestions.
