How do you message people?

Recommended Posts

Something I really shouldn't need to ask in a public forum.. but apparently on this one I do.. "you can't message this person, you are at limit, 0 messages per day". This is a ridiculous limitation to put on new members. I get that it's probably to stop spam, but there's better ways to do that rather than policing the basic direct communication of every new member.. Regardless of what people may think of my interest in the intellectual discussion of controversial topics, I've actually made friends many times over the years through direct messaging on such boards. Is this just a week long wait of being a member, or do I have to post 5000 threads, thank 500 members, do 50 jumping jacks, and drink a cup of coffee, before I can direct message someone?

Yea, but how long is "no time"?  and what is "participate in the forum"? Do I need to attend some forum events, or just write X amount of messages or is it a time thing? I mean no disrespect, but your answer was equivocal to "it'll happen when it happens". And tbh, it doesn't really make a forum too immersive for me with such restrictions.  Course I can only speak for myself, but that said; I'll probably make another thread or few, maybe drop a couple replies, but unless those gain some steam, I'll likely leave this behind (and, no, as a new member, I don't expect anyone to be sad over that, this is merely my feedback as a single individual).

 

On the topic of necroing threads, I've never understood why people get their panties in a bunch over that. Like, for example, I've been to plenty of threads that I find on google, since more often than not, when I look up information; the non-paywalled or wiki info that there is will be found from forum questions. With that said, I've found quite a few questions that got answers months or even years after the original post. So like, who cares if the thread is old or not, what should be judged (logically) is it's relevance, not it's age. That's what's always annoyed me about reddit, and why I'll never do much on there; seems they shut down threads as soon as they're either a week, or a month old. Sad thing is, I've found quite a few questions on there that I could have answered if the threads weren't locked.

No need to overcomplicate it or be overly sarcastic just because we want to avoid troll spammers, it's 20 posts you need, globally, any section. Just post around.

I can come off a bit sarcastic from time to time, I don't intend to offend anyone though. In full honesty, I've been dumped on my entire life, a lot of it being rude, blunt, uncensored, and directly to my face. So I often forget how sensitive people can be to a few indirect text words on the internet.

Also, I over-complicate everything, that's just my nature. I overthink everything. Sorry. I always have the best of intentions.

 

Thx for the clear answer though. Btw, life is strange 2 was a great game. loved the story, I hope they continue with it.
