And that was another suggestion. That these kinds of explainations be sent to a new member when they join so that every member doesnt have to ask why :)

Hey Jeff, I notice a lot of - if not the majority - of new members always ask why they cannot access their profile.

To avoid explaining this over and over again, have you considered adding that in a message that is usually sent to members when they register? You know, along with the 'your registration is complete...' blah blah blah, you can add, at the bottom of the email something like this:


[Registration Text/]

Please note: You will not be able to access your profile until you have posted at least 10 board messages and/or your account is 24 hours old or more.

That's what I was saying :) Explaining they must post awhile before accessing it or PM or certain parts of the forum, posting links,etc
