Is there an explanation published on the site of how the private messaging system is limited for non payers? I have been limited without warning. I didm't know a limit existed.
Steven A When you click on the Envelope icon or Private messages you will see in your case
Quota: 12 / 10
This means 12 of allowed 10, normally it could only be 1-10 / 10 but in your case we have a built in bug.
It could happen due to a few reasons.
One case is that you may have been a premium member going back to basic member or that I have changed the amounts allowed at a certain time.
Or something else which I believe has happened.
What you need to do is to delete at least 3 PM's to get under 10 or preferebly a few more so that you are within a good clearance just in case someone PM you.
Or you could upgrade your member account, it will also allow you to attach images with your posts.
However staying as basic means you need to delete some or all your PM's
