    I'm trying to message Simply Hops to see if their shop is still running, but I can't find where to send a message anymore.

    Is messaging still around?

    I tried sending a message from my inbox, but it said "You may not start a conversation with the following recipients: Simply Hops."

    Probably haven't kept up their sponsorship fees if they are still in business.

    Their website seems defunct. Perhaps not in business anymore.

    If the answer comes back you can't send messages to this person it means they have moved and gone behind the iron curtain.

    It takes a couple of regular posts before you can PM a member. Spammers often sign up and just use Private Messages to spam other members. Having all first few posts be in public, keeps the spammers from using private messages.

    How many posts? I have someone looking to buy rhizomes off me too, legitimately. We can't message each other as it appears he's new, and I'm not going to post personal contact details publicly. Is there a work around?

    @Mat B I'll think on the work around.

    Until you've made a few approved posts, that ability is not turned on. You've been approved, so should not have any more issues with it.

    I have only posted a few times but lurking for a while. I want to pm Belgrave brewer regarding his rhizomes. Any chance I can be approved for private messaging?

    Please try now. I made a tweak to the settings that should have solved an issue I saw.

    Is donating or becoming a supporting member a way to bypass the post count requirement? Most of the questions I have, the answers can be found by using the search function and it seems I would just be cutting up threads just to get my post count up.
