As far as I can remember the restriction is only to send PMs and it is three posts.

Just checked, it is a restriction on send and receive, but it is three posts.

The restriction was introduced because we had spammers sending PMs rather than posting on the forum.

As a reminder, because we've had quite a few newbies with roof problems asking for PMs, the restriction is only three posts. By the time you've introduced yourself and added a few replies, the PM function will be enabled.

Once you get to 20,000 posts the PM and posting facility should be restricted.
PVR is a classic example of having said anything useful in the first 10,000 and then just spouting drivell for the last 10,000... :evil:
