    I'm trying to message a user through their profile to contact them about a racquet they are selling on the Sell/Trade forum. I can't seem to find the link to do this.. Am I just blind, or is there a post count or something that I have to reach before that becomes available to me?

    Thanks!

    On the right half of the screen is a Contact Info box. In that is a link to email.

    It is possible you need some 30 or 50 posts to be able to send email. Can't say.

    Members need to enable e-mailing via their User CP when they register, it's possible the user has it disabled. You can confirm operation of this functionality by clicking my username and checking the drop down options.

    If you don't see "Send e-mail to diredesire," there's a post count limitation (although I'm pretty sure there's not one...). Even sillier is the percentage of fake e-mail addresses -- I've had issues trying to e-mail members due to behavior, but getting bounced e-mails. Then they complain if/when they get an infraction or ban with "no warning." Come on... As far as FS/T, this is why sellers should include e-mail addresses in their post(s), but understandably, people avoid doing so due to spam bot crawlers... Due to the way the FS/T is structured, though, it's extremely inefficient not to.

    Yeah, I don't see it. There must be a post requirement. Doesn't seem to be documented anywhere though.

    Thanks!

    You need 50 posts for this option to be visible to you.

    Thanks,
