hello,

you may have received PM spam lately.
we are trying to solve that permanently, but in the meantime we have to disable the PM system for newcomers.
it should be back in the next couple of days, thanks for your patience!

OMG, my PM function is gone :(
I think i should make more posts :P
It's somewhat unlikely you'd need it if you're a newcomer anyway.

Steam has things like this to prevent messenger abuse, you need to have bought at least one steam game before you can message anybody, if I recall correctly.

Still GBAtemp is worth engaging in.

Not that I'm a newcommer, but instead of disabling PMs for ALL newcommers (as one in this thread has over 70 posts), perhaps just disable it for only those with under 10-20 posts(that it, unless this forum has spambots that post that many times before being detected).

Just a thought.

I also got spam about buying cheap sunglasses and a random inquiry about joining an indian/desi cracking team, which I declined.

So you guys moderate PM's? Or do people just report spam?

EDIT: Unrelated, but why is there a delete button next to the edit button?

So I guess I need to make more post so I don't lose my pm right. I think you should still be able to see a pm you have saved. If this is just temporary, not a problem. Just don't want to loose saved info
Thanks

we never, ever read people's PMs, it's considered private conversation
the only way we can see them is if people report them or forward them to us.

I got the sunglasses one too but deleted it. The person has 0 posts so he was a newbie but still managed to get to me.
