Agreed, the 5 posts before permitting PM rule is certainly not normative.

If an odd but important local rule exists here, perhaps it would make sense to post that information more prominently. When I poked through the sticky posts trying to get a sense of the community, I didnít recall seeing anything about PM policy.

Maybe the registration welcome email could be edited to help on-board new users, by including a suitable link or some quick rules of the road.

The sort of people inclined to abuse PM will likely write anything to get their 5 post minimum, and new members attempting to legitimately buy products or services could feel less than welcomed. Which is not what someone would expect in a place that seems filled with so many knowledgeable and genuinely helpful members.

Well, I could not find a better place than here to make my first post so I can PM someone.

I am sure there is a reason for having to make 1 post, but I have never encountered this requirement anywhere else before.

...and now I have to wait an hour. Odd.

I can't figure out what I am doing wrong, but I can only reply to threads... I can't post a new question.

Strange... I don't need to PM anyone, but I need to figure out how to re-code my locks... I'd love to be able to answer questions, but I have a lot of learning to do!

How to filter New Posts?

I'd like to be able to log in to the site and just see the new posts since my last visit, but just from the forums to which I've subscribed. I dont really care about who loves Trump, who fears Trump, tuning an N55, changing tires on an M3, etc.

The amount of traffic in this forum is amazing but the single to noise is challenged.

Thanks!

Jim
