Re: 4 messages in 1440 mins

It is indeed a restriction for new members and was put into force when 'new members' who were in fact spammers, were sending private messages in large number to many members. As the moderators don't see private messages, the spamming was much too easy to carry out without being noticed and extremely annoying to members as there was nothing they could do about it.

It may be frustrating for new members but if it 'forces' them to look around the forum a bit, it might also stop them making too many 'mistakes' in posting later. Hardly anyone notices the many stickies with information in the various sub-forums - this would be somewhere for a Newbie to start.

Have fun and enjoy the Forum.

Re: 4 messages in 1440 mins

I'm a new user and I'm getting stuck behind this 4 messages in 1440 mins. I would PM an admin but ... (see previous sentence).

How can I get "unlocked"? I had messaged people on the market place and would like to reply to them in a timely manner.

Thanks in advance.

Re: 4 messages in 1440 mins

i've started visiting the forum/marketplace more recently and also find this quite restrictive, especially when someone had PM'd me for confirmation and I couldn't respond.

I can't imagine anyone replying to spammers, so perhaps the block could be disabled, or reset, when a user has already received a reply? ...Or at least reduced to 1430 minutes

I realise it's hard to implement these features, but just my .02c

Re: 4 messages in 1440 mins

I've just joined today and got a good bunch of PM's with very helpful private discussions but I can't answer them since I get this 4 messages per day limit.

I've posted plenty of posts today In the forums - how many is needed before I can reply in PM?

You don't need any more posts, but need to wait until 7 days after you joined (So some time next Sunday).

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?

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.

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!

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.
