    Can someone still get a message to me if I still can't PM, such as information about FE groups?

    Click on user name of person you want to PM and window will open with a start conversation option.

    The OP doesn't have 10 posts yet, so that won't work.

    Just learned this today too, too much lurking and not enough posting! In my defense there's SO much to take in ;)

    Yes, you can receive PMs, you just can't send them

    A person has posted 15 times and I can't start a conversation with her to give her my BOG Adr.
    What gives?

    Depends when she posted the last 5 messages. There is sometimes a delay in the ability being enabled. What is the username, I can check if there is a problem.

    I have more than 10 posts and can’t pm. I also can’t see messages being sent to me?

    Sometimes it can take a little while for the system to recognise you have the required number of posts. Hopefully all should be OK now
