Hello,


Welcome to the forum.
You need 2 posts, so you've reached the threshold Wink
Though if this is about the TS4 update, you may want to check out the latest Global Announcement in stead Very Happy

Hello!

The question is also on the Forum FAQ here, under IV. "Posting issues and Private messaging":
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t24098-forum-faq


I cannot send private messages:
As an anti-spam measure, new users must make at least 2 posts on the Forum in order to be able to send private messages. If you haven't made 2 Forum posts and you still wish to send a message to a Moderator, for example if you want to report abusive messages or if you want to ask for advice about external links/downloads, go to the Moderator's Forum profile and then under the "Contact"-tab. See if there is a green e-mail button. If there is, you can click on that button and write an e-mail message. The Moderators may or may not get back to you (for e.g. requesting additional information), depending on the situation.

Beyond that, it is possible that your individual ability to send private messages has been disabled by the Forum Administrators.


"Anti-spam" measure is admittedly a slight exaggeration, since spambots could still spam the forum first, and then go to PMs. But so far, we haven't had any issues with the system. Two Forum posts sounds fair enough for me; or do you think we should lower the treshold?
