I am new to the forums...is there a rule about noobs not being able to view any other member's profiles so that we can email them? Is there a post limit that needs to be met?

Long story, but members registered after 3/22/2022 have no permission to view other members' Profile pages.

So there is no way to contact other members via email since we can't see profiles?? No PM format...so how do we go about contacting other members?

The Classifieds section of this forum is provided as a courtesy to participating members- that means member who don't just use us for buying and selling stuff.

As a new member, you shouldn't even be using Classifieds at all. You need to demonstrate that you aren't just here for free advertising space.

Yes, I know that other forums don't take this approach. That's their business. In this forum, we want members- actual members.

I understand what you are saying. Not trying to sell anything...I'm a "new again" Sig owner and joined up to learn more about my new pistol and possibly build or aquire a new one. Not looking to sell anything, but I did see something I wouldn't mind buying. I know a lot of forums have rules and limits on posts before using any classified sections. I didn't see anyting about that.

Well, you're already ahead of the pack by not getting offended by what I told you, which happens more often than it should, since, ostensibly, we are all adults.

The other day, I had a member contact me. He's been here a few months and he's demonstrated by posting that he wants to be a member here. He asked politely to be granted permissions to view member profiles. His request was granted without hesitation.

Anyone who registered here before March of last year has the ability to view member profiles, but this has changed for new members due to the lowlife vermin thieves who were haunting the forum at that time. That shit has finally ceased, and restricting new members from accessing profiles was part of the solution. This is not something I wanted to do, but it was necessary.

If you want to be a member here, you are welcome, and if you do participate in the forum, in a few months you can check with me about gaining additional permissions.
