Is there any way I can respond to a PM about possible adoption for my rats? I know I can't send one directly back because I don't have enough posts, but I have no way to get ahold of the person that sent me the PM. Any help would be appreciated.  :help:

I'm not sure if this limits your ability to email them, but if they have an email link (it looks like an envelope) under their name, you can send them an email.

Otherwise, post in your adoption thread to have them PM you an email address where you can contact them.

I don't think you can look at profile details, either, until you reach the minimum amount of posts.  :puppy_dog_eyes:

But the person who you are trying to contact should be able to see YOUR info, and e-mail you. I think.

This is a really good idea!

Subee the rat in your picture is very cute ^^
I've always wanted a cinnamon (if it is that!)

That was Rimmer... he was Fawn Hooded. I actually have a Fawn Berkshire now... Dalton. I love the Fawn color. But this isn't the place for chit-chat.  :yelcutelaugh:

Can we post in any of the animal forums and have it count?  I don't know a lot about rats since this is my first time owning them, so I don't feel like I have much to contribute in Rats Rule! yet.  I know a lot more about cats, dogs and guinea pigs :-)  If I posted on the dog or cat forums, will that count towards my minimum, or do only rat posts count?

Posts anywhere on the board count toward your total (even the one you just posted!)  ;)

Ah, that explains it.  I got a PM and wanted to reply to it but the sender told me I was new and so couldn't.  Is it alright if I post another response in the thread she responded to?  Some places frown on multiple replies in threads, but the 'edit' window for responses isn't very long here either (is there a way to edit that?  I am constantly thinking better of what I just posted!).

Suggestion, if it's possible -

I've gotten several PMs that I'd like to reply to.  I understand the reasons for limiting replying to new posters. Is there some way to let new posters reply to PMs even if they can't generate their own?

Unfortunately, no, there's no way to customize the setting like that. It's all or nothing.

Rest assured, the minimum number of posts is quite low, and should be attainable in a short period of time. It's low enough to accomplish, but high enough so we can tell if someone is legitimate or not.

I can see that being a good idea.  I'd love to adopt a couple of ratties, but I'm unable to contact the person who posted them via pm.  And the adopt rules say that if you want to adopt you need to contact the advertiser by pm. :-[

No, if you want to adopt, you can post in the thread where they offered the adoption.  It's all other discussion that's not allowed.  :)

So i'm new and after I had some posts and I tried to send a pm and I THINK it sent it but i'm not sure. If you don't have enough posts to send a PM will it say something like "you're not able to send messages" ETC or will it not say anything at all and just act like it went through? Because mine said it was sent but i'm not sure if it really sent or not.

It would tell you you can't send them.  So, if it told you it sent, it went.  You have more than enough posts to send one, that's for sure.  ;)

Oookay, it's a good thing I found this thread. I also wondered why I couldn't look at member profiles etc. I do have another question though. I keep seeing stuff about "Chat" but I don't see the "Chat Room" anywhere on the forum. Is this something else that requires a certain number of posts before you gain access?

No, it's currently busted.  You can get into it by going to everywherechat.com and putting in the room name as #rfc
