Re: 4 messages in 1440 mins

So, if I understood correctly, after answering in a thread, the 1440 minutes should get restored?

I think 4 messages is not much, as I normally end up using pm sms style :P (I know it should be easier to give all the info in the first pm, but sometimes you really need the answer before elaborate further) Maybe the rule shouldn't apply when you are answeing a pm someone wrote to you?

You've only a few more days to wait until you can PM as much as you like.

Re: 4 messages in 1440 mins

cool, cause they just told me off for answering a thread with a joke pic (everyone was doing jokes, I thought it would be fine :/)

Now I'm back to reading and not posting for fun

Re: 4 messages in 1440 mins

You can post, you're just limited how many PMs you can send.

Re: 4 messages in 1440 mins

Hi I'm in the same boat. So I need to wait the 7 days to PM. Everyone wants a PM. And I wasted two of mine mailing the moderator asking how to make a post lol. I'll be patient.. Thnx everyone!

That's always a laugh. If we are evasive enough we can drag it out to all four.

Re: 4 messages in 1440 mins

It sometimes takes a short while to kick in. You should be OK now.

If not then log out and back in again.

Re: 4 messages in 1440 mins

I agree with everyone else on here. Regarding (1440mins) I joined for help. but I get the messages but cant reply to them, how rude of me.
I been put off using this site for help from anyone. What poor excuse to block spammers.
Most people / websites would have a ( report spammers button / complaints) in box. And if this website is unable to do this maybe , one of us could reconfigure it for you.

Re: 4 messages in 1440 mins

Nothing to do with being lazy. If you need an answer now, why should we post ten messages. We don't all sit around doing nothing, sometimes a quick reply, allows you to get on way sorting things out.

Well, one more vague post to add to the other 9 wouldn't be difficult, but he also needs to have been a member for a week before messaging more than 4 private offers of "friendship" a day to impatient EF members.

Edit: And he now has 10 posts.

4 messages in 24 hours? What's the problem, I doubt I send 4 messages in 24 days. This is a public discussion forum, if you have a question, ask it on the thread!

Because thats the point of an online community?

Re: 4 messages in 1440 mins

I have only been here three months in zurich, so making new friends to help me through the city/general life around here helps. Like insurance / taxes / buses / trains / all these questions you need answers for. and some times just reading me e-mails or letters from councils would be a big help, So more friends the more people you can ask these questions to. so 4 messages is rubbish.

Don't ask the questions on PM, ask them on a thread, that way everyone benefits from the answers (which is the whole point of this forum). Simples.

Re: 4 messages in 1440 mins

To be honest I been put off the site I see it is all forum legends defending this 1440mins and all the newbies against it. Yes I agree it is a forum for discussions like this but.
But not all things you want everyone to know about. so a private message to a friend in zurich would be nice.
And not all people sit and do nothing all day but monitor threads, how sad.
So if joining this site you have to tell everyone your private info , sorry it aint for me .

But you're happy to send private information to people you don't know, in a PM? Like your intro thread where the main piece of info is that you look a lot younger than you are, it does still seem that you're subtly trying to use this place as a dating site, or to find very close friends only. That isn't what this forum is about, which is why you're hitting spam blocks not designed to cope with what you're trying to do.

Stick with it and do not take things to heart. You will soon get used to how things work on here.
