How long before a newbie can send a private message?

Post by mpatry » Fri Jan 26, 2018 1:12 pm

Hi! I signed up a few days ago, posted a question, and received 2 primate messages in response. But I can't reply... I get a message stating that it takes a while before I get that function working.... does anyone know how long?

Thank you.

I don't think primates really have the intellectual capacities to answer questions about Chile.

If you do converse with them, at least avoid a face to face meeting. They are quite strong and dangerous and tend to try and steal your food.

Mind you, there are also not that many primates living in Chile which makes me wonder whether these messages are even genuine at all.

I am trying to PM you but having difficulty ... perhaps the forum is not set up for primates like me! Mpatry please let me know if you have not received my PM response and I will try again.

Ok Ok - so I'm the typo king! My secret is out. PRIVATE message ;-)

Susie, I did get your PM - but simply can't respond. Please let's have a coffee when you're back in Ottawa. Send me another PM with your email address if you like.

If I remember correctly, email addresses are removed automatically by the forum engine.

Not sure what is going on, but there is no restriction on you sending pm messages.

We have had a few people not understand that a message stays in your outbox until read by the recipent.
