    You have just recently crossed the minimum post requirement for sending and receiving private messages, as well as your posts being approved. I do not recall the minimum requirement for posts that containing links or email addresses, so those may drop in to the mod que by default, but those are more rare occurrences.

    Any further questions, send me a direct PM, even under restrictions you will be able to contact Anthony or myself by Private Message.

    If this continues for you, let me know as we have found at rare times we need to change account status, save it and change it back. (not logical that it happens that way but it has been known to work lol )

    Heya,
    although i understand the reason why you implemented some requirements for to be able to send pms and post links, i dont think that this is the best practise solution. I am a very active reader but never post anything. Lately i wanted to send a pm to another member and also to post a link but i couldnt - unless i would write more posts...problem is...do i really want to spam this forum with posts just to reach lets say 10 posts? It would be great if I could just contact you directly and you verify me and change my status.

    This has been an ongoing debate. When new members posted links and sent PM's (mostly spam), there were lots of complaints. Now that there is a post requirement we have people posting one or two word posts to get to 10. You are always going to have someone that will abuse the system regardless of the rules. I am sending you a PM.

    Perhaps if you participated - just a little bit more - it wouldn't be an issue?
