Sorry if this has been answered elsewhere but I did look in FAQ and didn't find it. :?:

When I scroll to "private messages" and click on it I get a message saying something like I do not have permission/access to that part of the forum. Is this because I'm new or does this forum just not allow private messages? I don't mind either way I was just curious.

It's because you're new (the same reason you can't get a ticker on your posts yet). We have certain restrictions for new members, which are especially important this time of year, to prevent spammers from being able to flood our members with spam PMs and links in signatures.

It'll be enabled once you've been here for 20 posts and 20 days.

I figured that was probably it :). Thanks for the explanation! I just like to know when I can do things :)
