    Hello!

    This post is addressed first of all to respectable DRTigerlilly. I spoke with him today via Personal Messages.

    There was a problem with my account — it was strange "semi-activated" (as I understand). I was not able to post forum messages. But after re-activation of account vBulletin said "your account are already activated". Hmm...
    Ok, re-activation did the trick and now I can post messages.

    But! Personal Messages functionality is gone now! No Personal Messages section in Control Panel, no PM-area in the upper-right corner of the screen. :eek:

    So, my account is still crippled for a some reason. Help me, please. :(

    You aren't able to send PM's until you have 5 posts on the forum. This isn't anything specific to you, but it is a restriction placed on any new accounts because there was previously insane amounts of spam PM's people were receiving from spammer accounts; since then there have been almost no issues except people can't PM others until they have 5 posts. I checked your user account settings and it all seems good

    so, not a issue with your account, just built in spam-protection :)]


    oh, yes. also DRTigerlilly is a 'her' (notice the little symbol in her user title)

    Ok. As I understood I had a posibility to send PM because my account is pretty old (maybe it was registered before engaging "5 posts barrier") though I didn't post anything until now. Re-activation pushed some trigger in forum engine and skipped all to normal state.
    Thanks!

    Oops... Shame on me... :eek:
