    Then the private conversation option will be right next to your log in name on the top right corner.

    Followed by a friendly PM by one of the Mods, about your wanton rule-breaking. ;)

    It shows the OP has already made 348 posts in the 2 yrs they have been here. Is someone else now using your profile?

    Folks. This thread went back to mid-April of 2016! I think the OP has figured it out by now.

    Just a warning to everyone. If you spam a bunch of nonsense posts to raise your post count, they will be deleted. The idea of the 5 post requirement is to have people be a productive member of the forum before they can send private messages to other members.

    Hello, is the requirement 5 posts or 10 posts? I just created an account and I'm confused, sorry!

    After five posts (bona fide posts that actually participate in a discussion), a new account will be "cycled" in a day or so, and allowed to conduct personal conversations (PM's)
