    I think we're all on to something when we suggest I have to wait to get a certain amount of posts. With this subject alone I could hit the magic number.

    Definitely didn't set up the account to block anyone (at least not yet).

    Tried Ken's suggestion of left clicking. Allows me to view the profile or the user's previous forum posts.

    Tried the settings feature, but get this message:
    Cocoa6705, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:

    Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
    If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.
    Try writing one more post and see what happens after you get past 10 posts. I remember someone talking about a minimum number of posts before access to some functions, not sure if true. But it was not too many. I think it is to keep the spammers away as much as possible, because there are people who log into forums, write one post and then spam a bunch of members by PMs... so I like the idea of a minimum... I think you will get access soon after another post - or a few more...

    no luck.
    I can see you are offline. Don't think that matters. I tried with members who are online as well.
    I get the option of viewing your profile or previous forum posts.

    Click on your screen name on the post you just put up. Along a blue bar near the top of the screen you should see “new posts, private messages” and several other options select FORUM ACTIONS” and when drop down menu appears scroll down and click on ENABLE PRIVATE MESSAGING

    5 minutes ago I tried clicking on your name to send PM and it wasn't available, looks like you are OK now

    Good luck

    I'm invisible so I can sneak up on you but you should still be able to send a pm

    Agreed.

    I tell you what, when I do get access I'm gonna lose my mind with PMs and Likes!

    I'm gonna stop now before CC gets wind of these posts. And we know what that means

    I'm up and running with PMs and Likes. Thanks for helping me get there.

    Future reference, it does appear to kick in between 10-12 post for new members.

    You might also keep in mind that after x amount of PM no one will be able to send you anymore because your inbox needs to be cleared. Not 100% sure of the amount. For mods it's 2000 but that includes inbox as well as sent. So clean out your boxes once in a while.
