    For some reason I no longer have the "start a conversation" tab when I click on a members name. Used to be there, now it is not? Restarted the PC even and no joy, any thoughts?
    Thanks

    Nothing odd in your settings. I reset you, try again.

    If you are not logged in, you can still pull up a member's profile, but you won't see the "start conversation" tab.

    You need to participate more on the forum to gain access to that system.

    Guilty as charged!
    I belong to many different forums because I have many different interests, but I have never seen that before. I guess I will have to work more on my social skills and see if I can get my privileges back!

    It's a spammer prevention system. We've had it for years, but finally tweeked the new forum software to reimplement it.

    Yeah, sucks that a handful of jackass' screw it up for everyone else! Having just sold my Raptor I am in the market for a Lightning, but it makes it a little more challenging when I can't pm a seller. Thanks though for the explanation!

    What is the post count now for Private Messaging? I was able to PM a mod a few months back for a name change, but since then haven't been able to send a PM. Working on getting my post count up, normally I just lurk.

    Looks to me like it is no so much about the count, but rather keeping active, involved. Not so good for us lurkers...

    What a crock of shit.

    I guess I'll just avoid svtperformance.com all together now.

    Thanks for ruining it.\

    Adios!

    That is not correct.

    No need to be so butthurt over a security measure, you're already past the threshold.

    This is your reply from when I asked the question at the beginning of this thread, did I miss something?

    Any idea what the post threshold is for being able to start a conversation?

    I am also unable to send PM's. How many posts/messages to unlock this ability?
