I think if a person over 100 PMs a person under 100, the person under 100 should be able to respond.

PM me any time if you wanna chat!

You have to have 100 posts to be able to PM someone. That is not going to change.

I like the idea, of someone below 100 posts being able to respond to whomever first PMed them. However, I think that it would be rather difficult to set-up technically, and it would probably start to be abused by some. I hope you realize that given the type of site VT is, precautions must be taken to protect users.

If you want to talk to someone under 100 posts, then just send them a visitor message. Not that great, I know, but until someone reaches 100 posts, its the best path to communication. If you want to PM, then just encourage the person to keep posting until they reach 100.

That wasn't really much of an answer, as non-staff I don't really have much sway in this, but I hope it helps you.

It's to prevent people spamming and abusing the PM system and also to reduce the work load on our server.

This would kind of defeat the purpose of having the 100 post requirement to PM, and doesn’t really make sense in my mind. Just because they can’t send the PM doesn’t mean that they can’t abuse it. The 100 is set as a safety procaution, and more than I think anyone will ever realize aids us, as much as it may suck. Believe me. I was that newbie who wanted to PM someone and kept getting that message, so I know. But it really is beneficial. All that aside, I’m pretty sure it’d be impossible to set that up, I’ve never heard or seen of such an option and I can’t really think of an instance where a place would need one, enough for someone to make a mod for it.

And yes, the 45 seconds is spam/flood control. If you have any other issues/questions regarding that, you can check out this thread or drop me a PM.

This will not change. It is a way to prevent spam.

I am not sure about if someone with under 100 posts can receive a PM from a mod, however I am sure the same rule applies.

Anyone can PM staff and be PMed by staff, regardless of post count.

OK so just that people with under 100 posts cannot receive or send PMs to anyone other than staff?

Anyone can receive PMs. People with less than 100 posts can only send messages to staff, once you are above 100 posts you can PM anyone.
