Odd bit about PM's

I've already received two PM's, but I can't respond to them since I am brand new and have fewer than 5 posts! Strange and inconvenient.

Common problem for a new arrival. You cannot send PMs until you have ten posts up. Its a SPAM thing. Inconvenient perhaps but such it is. Throw a few posts at some of the more generic threads.

welcome nonetheless and cheers

In a more perfect world, with more mature forum software, perhaps the forum software would pop up a warning to the SENDER before the PM was sent. Letting them know that a reply might not be possible, or other alternative choices.

But, hey, it's forum software and it is only one of several popular packages on the market, it doesn't belong to Sailnet. You might want to ask the admins to complain about that quirk and ask the software vendors to patch it.
