Changes to Member Accounts and PM Access

Howdy Ho!

I'm sending this to let you know that we're making some changes to some member accounts, and to the access people have to our Private Messaging (PM) system.

Sending PMs is now a privilege reserved for active members of our community...PMs can be sent only by people who also post on the forum, at least a little bit. We are taking these measures to control unauthorized commercial use, and other potential abuses of our system.

People who don't post for a long time will have their accounts changed to "Silent Member" status. Silent Members have all privileges of other regular Members, with the exception of access to the PM system.  If your status is changed, you can easily return to Member status by sending a request to me by e-mail at
However, if you return to not posting a bit, your status will soon return to "Silent Member".

The best way to handle the situation is to post...become a part of our community. We'd love to see you there.
