  1. How do you send a PM to someone. I have received them and responded buy I can not find where to initiate one. Thanks

    The simplest way is to just click on a person's username and then click on "Start a Private Thread".

    This option doesn't appear to me. Is it because I just recently registered?

    Same problem here. Does it have to do with my posts number? or maybe since when I'm registered?

    You need a handful of public posts on the forums before your account qualifies to use the private thread feature.

    Baron, you're getting better looking as you age. More of a roguish raconteur look I would say. You'll soon be able to do those "Most Interesting Man in the World," Ads.

    How many post do you have to make before you are allowed to pm?

    It's a reasonable amount but it varies randomly. Sometimes it's only 2. Sometimes it could be 15.

    You're maybe lucky Baron's the person in charge, and not me: seeing some of your two-word posts (doubtless attempting to inflate your post-count to be able to send members private threads) might make me disable your private thread facility before you even get started.
