Re: How to view PM's
I'm sure it is configurable.. it's a pretty standard forum anti-spam measure to allow us time to weed out the obvious spammers before the membership is deluged with spam PMs. One feature - ie that newbies can send/receive PMs with mods - had been 'lost' in that upgrade. That is now supposed to be fixed, so puddle, if you can't PM me it would be good to know that.
We realize it can be inconvenient at times, but it doesn't take that long to rack up 15 posts.. ask questions, play in the 'song chain', there's a 'newbies trash bin thread' as well.
