I HATE the Messaging Limitiaitn on WF!!!!!

  • |
I joined about 2 months ago, and now starting to get into the forums. There are few people pming me about offers and etc. but I can't reply until I hit 50 post. Worst limitation ever, I have been on other forums and the highest I have seen is 25, which is perfectly reasonable. I don't want to seem like a spammer so now I'm taking my time and I finding things I would actually want to post on but (ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR) I'm getting tired of doing this just to send a pm. Please bring the pming down to something more reasonable.

    It is very reasonable.
    But if you want instant access to go up to 400 PMs, join the war room.

    MoneyMaker,

    I understand that you are frustrated, but think of it this way. This forum is one of the largest if not the largest IM forum online which draws the largest amount of people which draws the largest amount of scammers, bots, trolls and spammers. Therefore, the 50 post restriction is not only feasible, but quite doable as well. It also is sort of a neighborhood watch against the fore mentioned undesirables.

    If you participate in the community in which you wish to hold your commerce transactions, then the 50 post count flies by in no time.

    By the way, there are certain sub-forums where posts don't count, like this one for instance.

    If you are doing business here, would it not make sense to purchase a membership? It's well worth the money.

    Should you decide to purchase, just tell them you were referred by Joe Robinson. He loves referring and getting credit for it.

      I want to say I resent this statement, but I kind of brought it on myself.

          I notice this comment frequently from new members. If people are PMing you to buy things - they are spamming the pm system.

          I don't get PMs like that - because they know I'd report them.

          So - on the bright side - the limitation is saving you from spammers

    Sorry if this is re-iteration but I'd like to address the OP personally. I'll read the thread, I promise.

    1. - So? Someone is supposed to bleed over that? If you don't like it, build a forum without the rules. That's what you're here to learn anyhow isn't it?

    2. You come in here and whine about how things are after two months. Two Months. two freaking months. Allen's forum has been around for well over - what is it guys, 2 decades now? And there is a core of members who have been there that long, and several multi-year generations. If you think you can do better - hell, if you think you can do a significant fraction as, why don't you stop the BS and go do it.

    In the time you took to post that you could have made one more good post.

    Something people actually care about.

      I remember Uni-Sol, Snitz, and vBulletin. Which one am I forgetting?

      Ouch................

      I'm not sure I'd be complaining about the limitation.

      I learned that on the forum I run people were using PMs to solicit business, make offers, etc., something that isn't allowed. So I turned the PM feature off.

      You're complaining about 50 posts? I made 80 my first day here. (Okay, wasn't
      my smartest idea) Point is, you should be able to hit 50 posts with regular
      contribution to the forum in less than a week. There is so much here to talk
      about. Just go to Main Discussion and check out the topics. Pick something
      you're interested in. Contribute.

      It's a novel concept and one that you just might like.

    Kim,

    That one was Snitz. I know that because we moved to vBulletin in August of 2008. Plus, it says so at the bottom.

    Thomas designed the look, I believe, and adapted it to fit vBulletin when Allen moved the thing.

    poorman and grace, with all due respect, it shows that you became members in June.

    I haven't been around here too long but from what I have learned, it is a community of people helping people. That means a commitment of time to help others by posting.

    Just keep posting the ... stuff you're posting and you should be able to increase your post count in no time.
