Default PM-service

to a moderator or admin.

Today I saw on this forum a solution for my gameproblem. So I registerd.
I try to send a PM to the person who solved my problem but I can't send a PM to him because I have to ask more questions first on this forum. This is strange. Because at at this moment I don't have any game-questions. So is it possible that I can send a PM without ask questions on this forum?

I believe this is a spam-preventing measure. Just rank up a few posts, and you'll be golden.

People with less than 10 posts have limitations. Their posts have to pass through the anti-spam filter (and may need to be approved by a mod first), and you won't be able to send PM's.

These are just spam-preventing measures. And I'm quite convinced they catch a LOT of spam...

Thank you for this answer. But how to do that? I am not so good in English
Is that, write nonsens at several topics?

No, write meaningful contributions to a few posts.

So, if you not have meaningful contributions to any post, then you can't have a PM-contact with a member of this forum?

No. Posts in Chit-chat don't add to the post count.

Why do you even need a PM? This is a forum. Just post on the thread where you found your solution.

I did. But I don't know if the person who I replied to will come back on this forum. His last message was a couple of month ago. So therefore I will try to send an PM so he will get an email that there is a message for him. And hopefully he can give me the information I asked for. So with reason I asked why I can't use the PM-option. It also possible to give some unusefull replies on other treats for more "posts" but then everybody can think I am a spammer.

edit: problem solved. I can send and did sent a PM now.
