    This last sentence is the comment is very useful...
    I thought the staff of BHW needs to EMPHASIZE this point as many don't understand clearly first... Even after 15 posts and this "Newbie"+ expected so long : PM isn't meant to send advertise or promote oneself! NEVER!

    Any chance you want to read what @Don't Panic wrote?

    I mean, @Don't Panic did spend considerable time on that post to make sure you knew when you could PM and why you could not at this stage in your BHW journey.

    After seeing so many people banned, I went straight to the rules page to make sure I dont either.... seems like it’s easy to get banned. Fingers crossed this post doesn’t get me banned. Look forward to being part of the bhw community.

    It's not that easy to get banned... it is actually much harder to not get banned than to get banned.

    But you did the wise thing and went to the rules page to make sure you are in line with how things are done around here.

    LOL, I was trying to send PM to the seller and get a free trial period, but I couldn't find any "Start Conversation" button. Now I know why. xD

    You cannot respond to Hire a freelancer or want to buy threads unless you have an upgraded membership.

    Be glad you could not PM or you would have received an infraction.

    Thank you for the information, otherwise within 2 days I tried to figure out how to write a personal message to a person. Now everything is very clear

    If you've bought something from a BHW Marketplace thread you can post on there asking the seller to PM you. You'll be able to receive PMs even though you can't initiate them.

    I also at first could not understand what was the matter. I was looking for the opportunity to send messages for a long time, because not everyone answers in the thread. Now I will know, thanks for the topic.))
