Hi guys, pretty new here. Forgive me if I posted this in the wrong area, but it seemed the most appropriate place.
I have sent a few private messages, but can't view the reply messages I receive. When I log in and go to "my account"->"messages",it takes me to http://pipesmagazine.com/members/koryhardkore/messages, where I get a big white screen that says "you have no messages". I can look at all the boxes (sent, received...) and they all have nothing. However, after I send a private message, I am directed to a different "private message" screen (http://pipesmagazine.com/forums/pm.php) where I can view my sent messages, and private messages. I can't find a way to navigate to this screen, and cannot access this screen without first having messaged someone!
Is it possible that I'm not allowed to message because my account is newer?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks, Kory

I was responding to a PM I received from a member. I didn't realize new members weren't allowed to speak, so I'll just sit quietly in the corner for a couple of years :) . In all seriousness, is there a minium post count or certain number of months as a member that I need to obtain before I can use the message system?
Thanks

Hmmmm....I've never encountered a problem with the site.
Tufftony, why don't you ask for a refund of your membership dues?

kory, just go to the forum page and scroll to the right. Should be a spot that says messages. I'll pm you and see if it shows up...and Welcome to the zoo Brother...

Bonus points to you for good attitude! Nice to see someone who doesn't get quickly offended.
You guys, I think it's time to initiate the new Pledge. You know, teach him the secret handshake, all that sort of stuff :nana:

If we told you where the messages were, they'd no longer be private, now, would they? :nana:

Thanks guys. You all seem like my type of folks, and I'm happy to be here!
BTW, good tip weez! :worship: If I click on "private messages" on the right side of the page, it takes me to the working message page (even though it says "0"). :roll:
Hope you all have a great weekend!

Jpmcwjr, that was my first thought as well, why is that?

Hahaha

Oh hey koryhardkore, know why you may be confused.
There are two messaging systems here.
The messages in your profile page are for the magazine site. The messages you are looking for (the forums) are accessible at
Code:
http://pipesmagazine.com/forums/pm.php
. The link is on the right hand side of the main forums page.

You do have to be logged in here to see the PM. Then when you click on the PM notice in your mail, a second page opens with your message which you can then answer. At least those are the hoops I have to go through with 10.

koryhardkore, I am glad that your problem is solved. I guess r managed to explain it and now you can access your PMs. We don't have any rules limiting the PM usage of a new member.
tufftony, you may find an answer here.
Closing down this one.
