These are the guidelines that admin has agreed on. Hopefully they ease up any confusion.

- If you are under 18; you do not have PM priviledges
- If you are Breeding/Showing; you do not have PM priviledges.
- To be able to PM you have to be on the forum for 6 months and contribute regularly.
- There may be exceptions for those that volunteer regularly at ACS shelters or are foster carers.

Email.

Some Admin have email addresses listed in the thread "ACS Messageboards Administrators and Moderators." Some have their email listed in their profile.

ETA - would also like to clear up that it wasn't just me, but the admin as a group that decided on these guidelines.

The majority of people can PM and we certainly haven't "taken away the ability for most of us to PM."

The PM system has been misused in the past, and unfortunately we now have to put these guidelines in place.

how come people under 18 can not pm???


It’s a safety issue. Basically, ACS do not want the potential to be held liable if something goes wrong, because we have absolutely no control over what may be said to a minor in a PM (for example, and adult member inappropriately contacts a minor).

So if you don't have the ability to send pm then you can get any ether?


That's correct, yes.

Please all members replying in this thread with personal questions regarding the new forum guidelines.

If you have a personal query with the new forum guidelines and/or why you may or may not have forum pm privelidges please email one of the forum administrators via the contact details on the forum guidelines section otherwise could all responses please be kept as general responses. The thread will be locked if it becomes filled with members debating over why they personally feel they should or shouldn't have pm privelidges.

I've just updated all forum admin email contact details as a couple of admins had no email address written in these details. If you don't receive a response from one admin within 24hrs please contact another as needed as sadly because we are all volunteers some of us may be busier at times than other admins.

thanks in advance everyone for your understanding.

Jess

- To be able to PM you have to be on the forum for 6 months and contribute regularly.
- When this time comes do we email and ask for access to PMing or is it done automatically?

If you are under 18; you do not have PM priviledges
- If you are Breeding/Showing; you do not have PM priviledges.
- To be able to PM you have to be on the forum for 6 months and contribute regularly.
for people who dont have acccess where is the 'help' or 'guide' section so we know how to make our email address available too? or is this not allowed?

Kris, click up the top where it says profile. You should be able to enter your email address there. Then for people to be able to email you via the board, you have to scroll further down on the profil page to where it says "preferences"

It will ask you:

Always show my e-mail address: Yes No

Select no, if you want it hidden, yes if you want people to be able to contact you via email.
