Hello klamia71 and Welcome! to USAM and the forums. Both USAM and CAM (Canuck Audio Mart) have a 10-post rule when it comes to directly contacting other members.

You must have a minimum of 10 posts here on the forums before you can contact another member with a PM (Personal Message). You can do this quickly by selecting any of the forum threads here on USAM and responding to them - just post your opinion/2-cents worth on the subject and then move on to another forum thread. It doesn't really matter what you say as long as you make some kind of contribution. It might be easiest to start with the following forum threads, all of them in the General Audio Discussion forum:

~ 'Great albums you just gotta hear'
~ 'Do you remember the moment you got converted?'
~ 'Your first LP and CD purchase'

Just keep going until you have at least 10 posts and then you can send a PM to any member that you choose to.

So get postin' ! You've got 8 more to go.:)

We have recently updated the minimum post requirement for PMs. Only 3 posts are required now. We still think a 0 post policy would be exploited by spammers and bots but we felt 10 was too many for most new users.

Just to add to this, there are no minimum post requirements for contacting someone through a classified ad. You just have to click the blue "Reply to Ad" button. Some users may require that responses come from registered members, but this is strictly under their control, we make no such sitewide restrictions.

I think you need a minimum of 2 forum posts to send a PM.
