Why? [PM limits]

You may only post 4 messages every 1440 minutes

This is so pointless, can't one change this ?

So the forum isn't filled with quite as much spam, or newbies trying to get their posts in so they can sell something

(oh, and this belongs in forum support, the complaints is only for complaints about Switzerland)

And you need 10 posts to sell something openly on the forum for the same reason.

Re: Why? [PM limits]

Sorry for posting in the wrong place, but if someone sends me message and I can't answer because i've sent 4 messages already is not good enough :P

Am I the only one that is bothered by this ?

Re: Why? [PM limits]

Once you've made enough valuable contributions (10 I think?) to this forum you can send as many as you like.
