I don't think you should have to have a certain number of posts to send a private message

Add a poll to this please.

And I strongly disagree with you. This limit at least forces people to post before sending a PM. Would you really want random bots send you PM's with spam?

I would rather have a little spam than having to post before I can contact someone espeacially if I need them to fix my forum.

Staff members do not allow support via PM, so that's a bad idea. If you need help, post in the Support Forum.

Why are you complaining? You have reached the post count. We don't allow support in PM unless its password reset or for passing something to Typlo.

I'm Undecided at this time. On my Fourm I have no minnimum # set. But then again I haven't had any problem with users miss using their PM.

When I was Admin, some very long time ago tongue , there were these annoying things called Spambots.
They'd join the forum, and within three minutes, would have sent over a hundred P.Ms of spam.

You do not want the be the lucky staff member who gets one hundred and three complaints because of this one spambot and his three minutes Wink

As it has already been mentioned that limit was set in order to prevent spamming via PM.
The limit is of only 2 posts so that should be really easy to get to. It doesn't take a long time to make 2 posts therefore the limit will stay.
Suggestion refused => Topic locked and sent to Archive
