    this is the message i was receiving:

    elmoreo, 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.

    I believe you need a certain number of posts before the system will let you PM. This is to prevent spammers from spamming people via PM.

    Correct. Keep posting and Private Messages will become available to you.

    Interesting. I wonder how often people sign up to a forum and right away want to send a message directly to one member, rather than join thread discussions?

    I assume the rules get changed around from time to time. but if you're a new user, there are limited users you can PM.

    I'm having the same problem. How long does it take to be able to PM? Any way around it?

    Sorry, I guess that should say how many posts before I can PM?
