Post About Private Messages!
Someone noticed that they couldn't send Private Messages to other users. There is a reason for this!

When you register for this board, you are considered a "Newly Registered User". Once you have made 3 posts, you are considered a "Registered User". Registered Users can send PMs; Newly Registered Users can only make posts.

This system is in place is prevent spambots from registering for the forum and sending everyone PMs. The idea is, once you've made 3 posts, we can tell that you're genuine (or else we know you're a spambot and we've deleted you).

BUT!...this is all how it's set up by default. I can change the settings, change the number of posts required, or I can even disable the whole "Newly Registered" thing and make everyone registered by default. What do you guys think?

temp removal.

anyone can usually report people, and as this isnt a massive 50000000k user site the chance of spambots is low, for now.

once it gets bigger remake it

Okay, for now I've disabled that feature. So, the point is: Anyone should be able to send a Private Message to anyone else.
