    I am a bit confused to how to send private messages. As a new member when I try to access this and send a message it says that I am lacking privileges. Can anyone help?

    The system is set up like this... after activating you must post at least once (not a nonsense post) then you will be able to send PMs. If your post count says 1 you should be able to send a private message

    pm's are usually a bad idea, you can get whatever help you want on the main board, pm's are usually used for personal messages after the members get to know you

    anyway, enjoy the board everyone, hope you have some fun, learn, teach

    Same boat here, thanks for the feedback on how to fix it. (Yes, I admit, I am using this post to get the 1 post I need in order to PM)

    silatro - did you activate/verify your account? i believe the system sends an email with a link that you need to click on to verify your account..
