Re: Sudden IM restrictions

Happening to me today. I am in my second year, so am not new, but also not very active. I received the same message: "New or unknown members need a qualifying period before they can use the IM system".

That's likely to be the cue.

I see you as having a longevity of one post (the one to which I am replying). I have the impression that the number of posts is an important indicator for dslreports. That may be why you are consider new.

As far as I know, the restriction for new members, is on the sending of usolicited PMs. If you are replying to another PM, then I don't think that is restricted.
