Personal Messages: the 25 Post Rule
Paging Dr personal message system allows members to communicate privately with one another. We encourage you to do this when you want to exchange telephone numbers, email addresses or meet in person.
When you have 25 quality posts, you will be able to send personal messages.
If you have fewer than 25 posts, we encourage you to be active on the forum. This forum has given much to its members, most of whom have fewer than 25 posts.
A word about spamming: in your zeal to get message posting rights, you might be tempted to write many posts very quickly, without putting much though into their content. If we find that your posts are not thoughtfully written, we will delete them. Deleted posts will reduce your post count.
Spamming other members through the personal message system is forbidden. We ban members for this.
How you can help keep Paging Dr runningPaging Dr forum runs on a VPS service. VPS allows us to use more resource (e.g. memory) than on a cheaper shared hosting server. A shared hosting server because it cannot cope with many people refreshing the forum pages.
