    I can't PM you, because you haven't enabled PMing. I just checked. Click User CP, then from the left side column on that page select Edit Options, then scroll down a bit to select the check box "Enable Private Messaging." I just did all those steps and they work.

    This has been resolved.

    You were not able to use PMs yet because you are a relatively new member.
    However, I have modified the settings a bit so that you can use it now.

    FYI

    New 3reef members have some restrictions. New members may not vote in polls or use PMS for the first two weeks or so until a certain threshold is reached which promotes the new member to true 'member' status.

    These restrictions are needed to help reduce spam - people signing up, not posting, and using PMs to promote - and also to reduce cheating in polls.

    Unfortunately the reasons for these restrictions do not go away, so they remain.
