    I can understand that. There ought to be a restriction on members sending PMs to newbies though because we PPS virgins don't have the ability to reply to them!

    Just to expand on this slightly...

    The reason why new members don't have full control over their 'User CP' and aren't able to send PM's is mainly to do with spam.

    Without these restrictions it's possible for people to sign up and start sending PM's to members with either spam or general trolling and we know nothing about it until a member reports it, like wise with spam web links displayed in their profiles which are set up via the user CP.

    So to police it there are some set milestones which relate to the number of posts members make. after a set amount of posts, the user CP is opened, some more and the PM system is... if you are a regular poster then access to the private 'Clubhouse' forum is given (the clubhouse is a forum for private business/general chat you may not want the general public to be able to read as it could be of a sensitive nature)... even more posts (but mainly if we like you) there may be access to a further hidden forum:whistle:

    So in general, the more you contribute, the more you will get out of the forum:good2:

    Looking at it I would say no one from PPS, maybe it's the secret room of another forum, I mean it does kinda look a traditional finish

    But on second thoughts unlikely, doubt there has ever been a time that it has had two visitors at the same time:whistle:
