Hello George. Welcome to Tech-Forums.

Due to recent PM pornographic Spam the Private Messaging system has been turned off for new users under 40 posts. This is a prevention method to stop that type of activity. Same thing for users under 40 posts can not post in the Off Topic area or the Buy/Trade/Sell area.

If you wish to contact a Moder or staff member there is a Confidental Forum to do so.


If you wish to contact a member right click on their name and open it in a new tab. There you will be given their profile. Can leave them a profile message or click on the contact info tab. There you can send them a email thru the forum. Only if they have it turned on.

Other than that enjoy your stay with us.

I do not accept support questions via EMail, PM, IM or my G+ page!

Welcome to T.F.

Enjoy your stay!
A notice to EVERYONE who has posted here with a computer problem, I highly encourage you to keep current with the forums, even if it's browsing for 10-15 minutes during lunch, or before you go to bed at night. There are many things that you can learn and apply to future issues. My goal is to help people get to a point where they can use their own knowledge to help themselves, and others.

Also please use the search button. You've got a 50/50 chance that someone's asked your question and we've answered it.

Welcome to tech forums

Ya due to those noob Porn spammers you can't PM until you have 40 post count, harsh but fair
I do not accept help requests and/or deleted threads/complaints by PM, Profile or IM/Email. Just ask on the forums! Also, I do have Lockerz invites if you want them, feel free to PM me your email if you want one :0

If I help you, or you just like what I said, rep me by clicking the
or under my avatar; it helps me know that my advice actually helped you.

.. But things don't go according to plan! My Actual Rig, 2009:

Sorry for the late welcome, but here it is.

As was said, PMs are switched off until a member hits 40 posts. It's a pain, but it was something we had to do.

Where's the Lounge?

If you're refering to O/T you can't post in there until you hit 40posts.
This is due to smammers posting in there lead by the high traffic from the forum.

Once you hit 40posts you can post in O/T.
Welcome to the forums!
