You need to read the threads that you were asked to read when you joined.sorry for being unable to reply to your pm. Seems my privileges to post are not allowed as i am new.
Until a new user account has been approved and vetted in the above manner, the account has NO private message privileges. Again, this is due to new users registering for spamming purposes only. They use the PM system without ever making a post in the forums. As with above, once the new member has posted 3 posts and the account has been approved and vetted, full board privileges are instated.
