@all, Q: Why can't I edit my posts or send PMs? is a frequent newbie query.

This is because the forum software anti-spam module prevents edits and  PMs if you have less than 5 total posts.

The edit button and PM functionality appears after you've made 5 moderator approved posts.

Good measure to prevent unwanted spam

I agree, a good measure indeed.

Is there also a similar measure for being able to send private messages to users?

I think there are better anti-spam methods. I'd like to contribute my build, especially because I modded my Core X, it's semi-passive, dead silent on desktop (even when charging) and very quiet during gaming. But this is my first post, so I won't be able to upload pictures..

Hi there,

I did my first post some hours ago in this forum, anyway, frequently reading here for some months now.
The post does not go online, when I'm not logged in I cannot see it. On top there's an orange exclamation mark together with "Awaiting moderation". Does this mean that an administrator has to manually confirm my posts (because I have less that 5 at the moment)?

Thanks,
roedi78

I replied a post asking if anyone knows how to buy egpus in Brazil. Received a pm offering me a Mantis and can't reply because of the block...

as someone who has moderated forums in the past, I welcome our robot overlords... the spambots that used to hit would ruin conversations and take time deleting... you'd ban them and they'd reappear...

This is a public forum and there's not really a need for PM unless sensitive information are exchanged. Questions related to eGPU setup should be posted in their appropriate topics rather than a PM.

 This encourages people to be more involved in building a community. Selling/buying stuff online without an established account is a pain regardless.

I can’t believe people are complaining about having to have 5 posts. 
is interacting with other people really that much of a chore?

I prob post too much.
