okay so yeah before you get all hot and bothered I may be a dumb ass... so what, that's no excuse for you....

When I saw all the questions.... hey I can't pm... I thought, yeah, well figure it out then.....

and in my own superior way I went about going through the forum to see what I could learn, confident that when the time came I of course would be able to PM

damn

I cannot and it occurs to me that if so many newbies are asking the same damn question... maybe the problem is not with the newbies

Case in point.... and please Apricot do not take this personally as I got a lot out of your welcome post explaining the different levels and what it takes to advance from one level to the next and what the privileges are... I will note however that in your intro to that post you referenced the all to familiar cry of the newbie... why can't I PM?..... and still newbie's do not understand. hmmmmmm

You do realize I am sure, that in your post that you claim is to answer such questions as "why can't I PM" you do not use the term "PM" even once?

The only logical assumption I can make and it is an assumption because you were not kind enough to spell it out, is that when you said

"Reply to a conversation"
and
"Start a conversation"

you were referring to PM privileges

I assume that you meant "conversation" is a PM..... ???? is that correct?

I am guessing BECAUSE I AM A NEWBIE

in which case I assume that as a newbie with less than 15 posts that, someone could PM me to start a conversation and I could reply to them

but

I could not "Start" a conversation with them by "PM"ing them .....until I have 15 posts which would make me a Newbie+

is that correct? hmmmmm not done ranting yet....

So how many posts do I have??? I notice that every time I post a comment on a thread my message count goes up......does that mean that a post is also a message?

I can readily see that I have 17 "messages"..... of course no where in your post defining the rules do you talk about "messages"... so once again I am assuming that by "messages" the site actually means, "Posts"... of course I have no idea

BECAUSE I AM A NEWBIE

So, not knowing I assume that by "messages" you mean "posts" so in order to PM someone I get busy "messaging" .... making comment on threads I find of interest..... and blessed day.... I see my message count climbing.... yeah it goes above 15.... yeah!!!

Am I now able to PM someone? hmmm apparently not. So I am left to wonder which of my assumptions is off???

of course IF in the post that was written to explain the answers to questions like "why can't I PM?" the answer was readily apparent I wouldn't have written this horribly annoying rant....

of course I am most likely lost at sea and there is a perfectly reasonable and logical explanation...

tell me I am lost and the following is soooo wrong

Conversation = PM
and
Post = Message

Cause the way it looks to me, I am just supposed to know that when you call Tom, Fred that you actually meant Tom

okay so I'm ready... go ahead and tell me why I'm an idiot and what exactly it takes in order to PM and how it was so obvious if only I had a brain

Thank you :)

no no no no no

the idea is you post 15 grate topics or ansaw 15 grate threads.

if you need to upgrade post 100 topics or ansaw 100 grate threads.

the restricstion are there for spam reasons.

the idea is ppl stick around and use the forum to learn and to help others ....

Why not just {ask the question|make your comment in public} without leaving information that is sensitive in public?

the more you post the more you can do as a user ...

you need to start helping others in a forum you understand and then everythink will be usable.

i think afther 15 post you can start to pm others but not spam.

you can ask in the thread your in if you dont understand somethink said .

After deciphering all of the superfluous ranting in that post, I think I figured out what you're asking.

1. Yes, the term "conversation" refers to PMs

2. Yes, the term "message" refers to posts

3. Yes, you can start conversations:

I appreciate that... that the rules are there for a reason and a good reason at that... and I am against spam and other such things... but I want to talk to people and if I see something I think I can learn or a product I am interesting in then I want to PM the person to ask any question I might have so I am eager to ...within the rules.... be able to talk to other members here.... so that is why I am wanting to PM and understanding what is required in order to PM is all I am asking... if it takes me two months to get there or to pay to be a paid member or whatever I am okay with that I simply want to understand.... and I do not.... and a lot of people who join apparently have the same question.... so maybe ... I am just saying maybe.... it needs to be explained better.... for example your explanation while I appreciate your effort to help me does not explain to me .... I am hoping someone will see this and have some mercy

I missed the mark in making a proper response.

Speak publicly to the person you want to PM and leave out anything that is sensitive or private in the thread you have a question or comment.

The time it took for you to bitch and rant, could have spent in conversation, being a valuable member of this forum. Instead you’re wasting everyone’s time writing a bunch of cry baby shit. I would put $2000 down, betting that you were born sooner than the 1990s.
