    Hi,

    I'm just a new member, even if I've made my account in 2013...
    Just I wanted to contact someone by PM but I can't because I've not wrote at least 15 posts...

    Is it not a bit restrictive ?

    In future, anybody who asks this question should have their minimum post count raised by 50 ... or just banned.

    You need at least 15 quality post to PM some one.
    But if you be a Donor you can start sending PM now.

    Man 15 post is not a big deal, you are a old member but you dont have 15 post & now you are here to complaining about Forum Restriction...! LOL man...

    The only motto behind this is to stop spamming
    But dont make useless post to reach the Pm limit or it may not be counted

    Implementing a required minimum post count for opening threads in certain forum sections (like the money making section) would also be a good idea.

    You have enough number of posts but just think of newbies buyers as well as sellers
    Making 50 posts is really to hard for them as they are new

    Why are so many noobs complaining about the PM limit just lately?

    15 posts isn't a huge amount but if they are too damn lazy to even post that much then WTF are they even doing here?

    I'm with W130SN on this. Raise the post count to 50 or ban anyone that complains!

    this is to churn leechers and spammers, 50 should be more better!

    Why should they be banned ?
    I dont think this is the solution
    Min 15 post count is fair enough which was decided by admins and moderators

    Because private messaging on a forum is a privilege not an automatic right.

    Why should people be allowed to complain about having to make a few posts before earning the right to send messages behind the scenes????

    50 posts would deter at least some of the scammers and it would be easier to verify if someone has just spammed "thanks, nice post, I'll try this, thanks for the info etc" 50 times just to start sending PM's.
