Talk about everything else here!

I'm starting this topic here because I'm not sure where else to do so.

I've been a member here for more than six months and primarily use these forums to PM other members for trades and purchases.

As of a few days ago, I'm unable to send messages. The 'Reply' buttons don't appear so I cannot respond to existing messages in my in my inbox. When click 'Compose Message', I get this:

"We are sorry, but you are not authorised to use this feature. You may have just registered here and may need to participate more to be able to use this feature."

So what gives? Can someone tell me how to get it working again?

The mods/admins are pretty active here so I'm guessing they'll see this soon.
My guess would be that for some reason, they locked PM'ing to user levels, and from what I see the next step up is 50 posts total.

We had some problems with spambots before so it might be related to that, though I never got any PMs from them.

Those are permissions accessible by Best1989 (and the former admins), so you'll have to wait for him to log in to provide clarification as to when PM features become available to users.

As FoP mentioned, due to the increased activity from bots several safety precautions were put in place to minimize their reach on the forum.

Hey nib, please let me know if you have the option now. I moved you to a group with more permissions.

Is there a list of the different tiers and what there permissions are on the board?
