I think there is a minimum number of posts required to send PM's.

That is even to send a PM to the Admin of the site, which may be a permissions error. Usually anyone can PM an admin or a mod on a forum.

It's mainly to keep spammers and other wankers from posting absolutely useless posts to activate the PM function so they can spam some poor girl looking for a friendly soul instead of some Fugly dude from dog knows were just registering to try to hit on her.

What is the best way to contact an administrator if my PM ability is locked out due to not meeting the minimum number of posts requirement?

Please don't edit my post again. The question is specifically how to contact admin without enough PM's.

If you but browse through this Announcement Forum you will note that it's been answered a couple of dozen times.

From this link it appears that we need to have at least 5 posts before we can send a PM - http://forum.singaporeexpats.com/ftopic44828.html

Please be aware that inane one liners posted in succession will be unceremoniously deleted in short order.

As I skimmed down the topic I read this, and without noticing the author, thought that I had written it. But then I thought, surely not, as SMS would never let me get away with language like that!?

So imagine the mirth and joy on then noticing who the author was! :lol:

What happened when you click the Inbox link?

What is the error?
