They can not SEND -- but they can RECEIVE....   after all - you want them to be able to read notices sent to them - especially if sent by a mod  - right?

Ahh I thought it would block both ways just for "general members" but that Mods or Admins could send messages.

The point of it is to keep general members from sending a brand new member a PM message that basically
tells them our site sucks and they need to go to a competing site.

We have run into this and my thought was that if a new member can't be lead astray immediately we will
keep more people from being influenced by those that don't like the rules here to talk trash and
convince them to leave.

I know it seems odd that this even exists but it does and while we will never stop all the bleeding
but maybe be able to cut down on it a bit.

Does that make sense and is it possible?

I have done that...  It is not a VISIBLE change (both "groups" are still called "No Force", but the 0-5 post count folks will not be able to PM

Very cool thank you, double checking that is to send and receive correct?

That way when one of the unscrupulous characters that tries to prey on a new member will get a message telling them they can't send a message
to the new member. that way if they really want to keep stealing people they will have to work harder at it and we might catch a few doing it.

Obviously I'm never against referring members to places that are legitimate requests but its the people that are here specifically to
take business away and cause problems that this will help discourage them form that behavior.

Thank you again and again

Something Important to implement I think would be that NEW members can not send or receive PM messages until they have 5 posts.

I think this will do 2 things

1. It will encourage new members to post and be active.
2. It may help cut down on those who simply come here waiting for new members and Pm them to join competing sites.

WHo is viewing is fixed...

sticky...  I'll look into it

Cool thank you, it actually looks like it is a very subtle different shade of grey
so I would think it can be specified for color or even if you want to do the icons
on the side in color? what ever you think will work and look best.

Ahh wait I see it now, had to refresh things ;)

That works as its just enough to make them noticeable but not dominating with to much contrast 8)

In addition to, no longer shows who all is viewing a topic when you are in a topic. can that be turned on?

I did also notice it is hard to tell what is a stickied topic can those be colored? or just highlighted in some way?
