Can you monitor PM traffic? It would be interesting to see how many newbies go from 1-5 on their first day, stop there but start PMing people instead...

I'd burn their sorry ar$es if I had a big red button in front of me 8-)
I'd raise the benchmark to 50 or 150, only the "regulars" who have been here a while should have any use for the PM feature anyway...

Can't be any worse than the silly noob who registered today and made his 1st post above yours and thinks he's gonna fool anybody. Chief Dork would be more like it. :roll:

Bloody hell, raise it to 50 or 150!?! It's bad enough when we have to put up with 5 blood useless one-liners that normally make absolutely no sense, so that they can make a PM. This nincompoops would post fifty one-liners then! :o

Don't forget those threads that go like "How many posts before I can PM?"

If only they bothered to, you know, READ.

I think that is a suggestion worth discussing. I.e. what need does a complete newbie have to PM other people? On the flipside if the hurdle was at say 50, would these same newbies write 50 posts of piffle?

Well, my 2 cents ? On a forum where there used to be a lot of spam / flaming, the mods changed the requirement for PM to 50 posts, and / or 3 months or pay a minor subscription fee :D :D

The rational was - if the person can last the 3 months and / or 50 posts, they deserve to get the PM facility :D

If they are desperate - pay for it :D (I know, it doesn't go down with a lot of people who expect forums to be free and cost zero $)

I would say one month of probation and 10 posts with no more than 3 on 2 consecutive days :)
