    I tried to PM someone on the board and I received the message, "The private messaging system is currently unavailable." What's up with that? I wanted to PM the admins rather than make a thread, but of course, I was unable to do that either.

    This'll be my first post.

    Hello,

    if i'm not mistaken, it takes a certain amount of posts before that option is available.

    Good to know. How many do you think? A few dozen? I looked through the FAQs but I didn't find any mention.

    Thanks for the heads up though.

    ;) This has been a most useful thread so far.

    I'll try out that other thread too.
