    I have read the FAQ and done searches but can not find an answer as to why this feature is not working for me. There are no buttons on the posts for PM or Emails and when I add someone to a buddy list and try to send a PM I am told I don't have permission to do that.

    What gives? Someone please helpme out

    You need to have a certain amount of posts before you can send PMs (I think the number is 10 but I'm not sure). Send one of the admin an e-mail and they'll help you out.

    Thanks. It was driving me nuts trying to figure it out. I wanted to send messages to a couple of people about plows they were selling and I couldn't do it.

    Your post number wont increase if you post in the following forums: For sale, off topic, Test forum, and i think the community support forums, and the weather forum. Everything else will count. Hope this helps.

    the PM feature is active for you...you should be able to send and receive private messages...to send one, click on the member's profile you would like to PM and on the right hand side you will see a link that says "Send a private message to..."...click on that link and you should be all set

    Let me know if you have any problems

    Thanks,
    Mike

    OK maybe I am having a bad day but I just don't seem to be getting it. Their profile is when you click on their name and view public profile correct? And do they need to be online to do it?:help:

    yes, that is correct...they do not need to be online to do it...you can look up their user name and click on their profile if they are not currently online
