I'm not sure what this means, exactly. Does it mean that I must post 15 times in order to use this feature? Below is the message that I'm referring to. I pops up when I go to PMs.
We apologize for the inconvenience but sending a Private Message is disabled for all members who have not actively participated on the site. Members are required to have a minimum of 15 quality topics in order to use our Private Messaging (PM) System.
This change is required to decrease the likelihood of someone abusing our policy and soliciting members. If you get any private messages that are soliciting in nature, please report them using the Report button found in the message. Thank you for understanding.
