    Hey thanks guys, I appreciate it. I can understand if they want to be sure you're not a lunatic first. No problem.

    Your PM limit should be handled now, Cynthia.

    We've got things set up to limit newcomers in the number of PMs they can send. (We were having a spam problem a while back and it was how we handled it.) It looks like a limit was also set on the number of messages newbies could receive, but I believe that was done inadvertently. (Darren set it up, so I plead ignorance. It's easy for me to be ignorant. I come by it naturally.) I've flipped a switch backstage, so now "New Members" can have up to 100 PMs in their Inbox. After a month or so, "New Members" are upgraded to "Members", and the PM limit is raised to 200 messages.
