Really? I can't believe this.
please familiarize yourself with techspot guidelines.
I am familiar, I had to post 10 times to send my private message, that was 6 or 7.
I was more pointing out had they contribute to useless posts, and probably should be changed. I just didn't want to get criticized for trolling (and technically I am not since I have a very good reason to post, yet I am still cluttering the boards, seems like a problem).
Yes you need a certain amount of posts before being able to PM someone. It's part of security measures in use on the TS forums. You have two weeks to think about why spamming your thread everywhere is not a good idea.
Why would you want to PM someone in the first place?
If you have a question about a specific problem, then create a thread about it. Otherwise I don't see why you would need to contact a specific user.....especially when you just joined.
Rules are in place for a specific reason. If you don't like them, then find another place to get your questions answered.
