Newbie here, help me the boards?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

Hey guys. So I'm new to the boards as of a few days ago. Trying to get the swing of things here. I tried to PM someone but the site told me I don't have permission to PM. Is this because I'm new? Will the site eventually give me permission after a period of time?

 

Thanks!

Yes, you're right it's because your new.  Once you reach a certain number of posts (I don't know the exact number) you'll be able to PM.  I think there might be some other restrictions as well, but I can't remember what at the moment. 

 

If you have other specific questions you can also check or post here: http://www.mothering.com/community/f/2/technical-issues-forum-information

I remember being able to PM pretty early on ... I think the threshold is a lot lower than 50.

 

The signature testing thread is a good one to get 1 or 2 posts in, as are other general interest threads that might appeal to you (pets, decluttering, natural body care, etc...).

"We require new members to be registered three days and have at least 5 posts to the forums." From Cynthia Mosher (uber goddess of the forums).

 

You should be in the clear pretty quickly!
