    Sorry if this is a dumb question but I am new. Is there a way to private message another member?

    Just click on the members name. A box will appear at the top of the page with a link to "Start a Conversation". Just a different name for a PM.

    Since you are a brand new member, there are probably restrictions on your ability to send private messages.

    how long before you can send private email. And can I know if someone has that capability. For example If I ask someone to PM me, how can I know if he/she could?
    Thanks

    How do you get the restrictions removed in order to send pm?

    Why would you want to send a private message to other members? Will it be better if you just create a thread so that everyone can provide their insights about your concern?

    Easy example - You're buying an item I sell in the marketplace; we proceeded to exchange emails - do you think broadcasting this in a thread is appropriate?

    Throwing my hat in here - I understand the spam limitation and I'm sure it works well, but at least give some info. I spent a few minutes looking around at profiles/conversation pages in confusion before googling it (since there's no mention in any sticky I saw) and I still don't actually know how many posts before I can PM. Just wanted to buy someone's floor mats...

    Likewise, spent a lot of time trying to figure out how I was missing the send a message button...the button should be available and the error message can show why we can't send pms

    I can't seem to send a PM either as a new member. Did anyone figure this out? Interested in a Model S for sale and would rather take it to PMs.

    If the sale is posted in a thread, openly request that the OP (the original poster) send you a PM. I think that might work. And, if you are looking for a white 2013 S85 in Fullerton in the $33K range. Respond to this thread.

    This is probably the worst and most "closed" rule ever. How can noone know how this works. Its super anoyong to participate in the marketplace as a long-time lurker.
