    If you want to send a PM you need to have at least 15 posts, otherwise you will not see the option to start a new conversation. Make sure your posts are good quality and do not make short, spammy or low-quality posts just to boost your post count - these posts will be deleted and your account may be banned.

    When you reach 15 posts, you will see a yellow button appear at the top of your inbox with "Start New Conversation" - this allows you to send a private message to another member.

    You will also see the option to 'Start a conversation' in the pop up window when you click on another user's name.

    Do not send PMs promoting your site or services or asking for things - this is against the rules and may lead to your account being banned.

    You can reply to PMs, but you won't be able to start any conversations via PM until you have reached 15 posts.

    Depends. Certain sections here do not contribute to post count, for example the lounge posts don't count as post.
    15 posts are pretty easy to get really lol. Just take part in the discussions. If you have an solution, post! If you have a problem, post!

    I'm afraid not! You can post on the seller's thread and ask them to PM you instead, then you will be able to reply.

    Just post in their sales thread and they can respond to you via PM - you can receive them, you just can't send them.
