That was because you had not posted yet. We need to verify that you are indeed a person and not a spammer. We require that you do at least one post before you are placed into the regular users group which gives you access to the pms. Initial posts still need to be approved and it's this that tells us what we are dealing with. So, you should be good to go now.

Enjoy the forum.

I cannot PM either. How long does it take to be able to PM since I have been a member for a couple of months now. Seems like this is a common issue

Noble Beast you were still on moderation. That's been fixed.

Looking into this. You're not in the new users group so you should be able to do this.

i paid for a new membership for this year, i remember paying early last year and it should have transferred over to this year but i paid again. maybe that was causing the problem?
