I have registered as required and asked a few questions via posts and I am still not allowed to send personal messages. I sent an email to the moderator and have not heard anything back. I am clearly not a spammer and would like to be able to PM people to clarify their posts when they are offering help to me. I read the FAQ and it just simply said when you are a new member you are not allowed to send PM's until it is verified you are not a spammer.
Anyone have any ideas how I can get my account "unlocked" so I can PM?
You should not be using PMs for questions that can be asked in posts, even clarification. That does not help others who follow and read the posts. Ask the questions in posts. That's what the forums are for.
