Re: PM changes

So, based on my experiences as a new user, there was never any notification that, as a new user, I could not send PMs, but I didn't see anything informing me of the existence of PMs on this site, so I wouldn't even have known what I was missing out on.

Re: PM changes

Aczaha, and others.

This is a new developement.

No doubt some of the things you are raising as concerns were either unseen, or thought to be not problematic.

On return to 2p2 I am sure Ryan Beal (an administrator), will note your concerns and look again at this new feature.

You are just suffering from poor timing; opening an account on the one weekend when this went live and the admin is away.

Be patient and I'm sure your concerns will be adressed.

Re: PM changes

At this moment the rules seem very vague...
how many messages does someone need to post before the pm-option is activated?
I've searched the forum but couldn't find it (sorry).

This is not meant to be public knowledge.

The whole reason for this is to stop pm spammers.

Achieving said goal means we don't want said spammers to know the numbers they need to make to get around it.

The numbers are not static anyhow.

The life of a PM spammer is always intense.

Re: PM changes

The ability to send PM's has been removed for new users and for those with really low post counts to help eliminate spam PM's

Ryan, I wasn't able to send that PM to you, so message is below.

Everyone else, this is like private, no peeking.

Re: PM changes

Is there any process available to turn PM on for some new users?
Maybe you should make it so that new users are limited to 2 PM messages a day?
That would probably give all users with legitimate needs to PM what they need, and yet prevent people from abusing the system.

I am looking to PM with people to trade $W for $ and can't do it now with this change.

After typing this is - I noticed that for my account PM's have been turned on. But this may still be an issue for a lot of other users...

No.

The ability to receive/send PMs comes at the same time.

Click "My 2+2" at the top and then click "Edit Options" from the drop down menu.

About 1/3 of the way down there is a title bar that says "Messaging and Notifications" (or something close to that).

There should be a box to tick that says "Enable Private Messaging"
