    Can't seem to private message anyone. Is there a way to get messaging turned on?

    I've tried sending messages to normal people on the site and it wont go threw, or even show I've sent anything at all.

    i think you have to reach a set number of posts before sending pm's

    This is correct. You've gotta' hit a certain post-count before you're allowed to PM.

    It's an arbitrarily assigned number, it varies from user to user. A few posts, and he'll be off and running.

    lol. trust me pm is no big thing especially when any mod that's feeling nosey can read them so kiss privacy goodbye.
    btw i did get the pm so all is good and like i said in the pm about sent pm's not showing up, just another riu overlooked problem that just gets pushed under the rugs.

    How so? Admins are the site admins. That's who can read your PMs, the people that run the server. Mods can't see (or change) anything about your profile, beyond what the public can see. Mods aren't here to monitor users. Global mods delete all the shit that's spewed from the sewer that's known as the internet (spam.) They settle issues, and have secret meetings with robes, they delete posts that violate the TOS. Moderators have a section, or a couple sections, where they delete spam and TOS violations.

    Well, it appears to be an impasse than. I guess your options would be to: 1. look at the track record of RIU, and realize that a site of this magnitude couldn't exactly 'exist' given the sensitive nature of the topic, in the eyes of the feds. 2. Investigate other forums, and the nature of databases and web sites, and see how privileges work, and that no matter WHERE you go, someone CAN read everything you post. Or 3. Keep being uninformed, insulting, and unhelpful to other users, trying to spread incorrect rumors (those are called lies,) and be another member that just comes here to complain about being here.

    You have the ability to send Private Messages, however you had your options set to not save your message in your Sent Messages folder. I changed that for you.

    Most of what everyone else has said here is wrong.

    Hey I don't have many post , but I would like to speak to growgorilla and hydrored in PM. I don't want to just create random post to get my count up so I have the ability to PM and I don't want to post in other threads when I have nothing to say.

    Can you help me out . I've only been a member for like 4 days .

    When you post a few more times, your status will change to Active Member, and you will be able to use the Private Messaging feature. We don't have the ability to circumvent that.
