    I agree that the post count minimum needs to be gone or at least lowered. Someone needs my help and advice but needs it through a private message and just posted quick answers in order to get to me, now I am forced to post until I have 50 but I wish to help people while doing it instead of doing a half job at it

    Helpful suggestions:
    1. What if new people with smaller post counts could PM people they put in their friend list and who agree to friend them? Then they could choose to friend/unfriend someone if they wanted to talk, or if they got trolled or harassed by a member (or vice versa) they could unfriend or block those people.
    2. Does this forum have a way an individual can block messages from specific members, if those members become a problem troll to them?

    I honestly think that these are the best ideas. You need to add a member as a friend in order for them to be able to message you. Perfect!

    I tend to agree with this thinking. I visit forums to assist others. Many times a personal conversation is required. It is kind of sad that the baby must be tossed out with the bath water.

    No babies shall be tossed!!
    We're working on a solution. No worries.
    In the mean time, maybe provide an email address for people to contact you? It's fairly simple to create a "throw away" gmail email.
