With this hack you will be able to set a minimum number of posts for your users in order to send Personal Messages.

After installing the hack, go to Settings-Options-Private Messaging Options. There you can enable and disable the hack. You can also enter the minimum number of posts for your users in order to send Personal Messages. By default it is set to 5 posts. You can also choose which User Groups and Individual users will be excluded from the post limit.

A new option added which will allow those users who are below the post count limit to send pm to contact a member of the staff.

The new mod can be downloaded from its thread at my forum for free. Which is the support thread for the mod as well.

I am lost. The mod you linked above is about Advanced Forum Rules. It has nothing to do with my mod. It restrict users to pm if they don''t accept the rules whereas my mod is totally different.

But if you don''t like my mod, you don''t have to use it, very simple

I linked the wrong one. http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=233979 is with the post count. And this has nothing to do with your mod, I was replying to the other poster that this existed.

That mod with the post count is for a lot of things. Whereas my mod is only for pm''s. For users that want to use that for the PM system only.

I've read if you change the dependency in the XML file that this should work for VB 3.8 as well. Is this correct?

I can''t say for sure as I don''t use vb 3 but give it a go at your test forum and if it works please let me know.

I've changed the dependency minversion to 3.6.0 in the XML and tested it on a 3.8 test site. Everything seems to work great! I've installed it on my live site and if I find any problems post them here. Thanks for the awesome mod!

Thank you for this great mod.

I have one idea, what would you say to make an additional function of the mod:

I mean by the time user reach the X number of posts he can send a pm to admins only.

Atm I don''t plan to add extra options to the mod for lack of free time.

Yup, agreed. All newly registered members at my forum receive auto PM (from Admin) with certain instructions. Many of them reply without even posting yet. Borbole's mod is great as usual, but prevents replies from zero posters. I sure hope he finds some free time to add this option.
