It seems crazy to see so many people voicing (warranted) resentment to the block on sending pms. If there's such concern over how the messaging system is to be used (or abused) why not disable it all together...otherwise just open it up for everyone 🤷*♂️

Why don't you just pay for the map file updates that you're looking to steal/pirate? You're driving a freaking BMW for cripes sake, and should know that it stands for Busting My Wallet.....

Kind of what you call false choices. It's for people that have been around a while, contribute, and are reasonably assured to not be scammers. Yeah a few good newbies get hosed along the way but so be it, no different than if there wasn't a system as you suggested. Works for most of us here, no need to kill it or open it when leaving it alone is a perfectly good option as well.

Is there somewhere that says what the requirements are? "A certain number" is vague. I joined as soon as I got my G80 back at the end of August. I'm mostly a lurker who wants tech tips, will share product experiences, and will share pics every now and then. But still shows:

I joined in August and posted pics of our new to us X7. Posted some new posts but also have the same PM restrictions as shown on your page.
Still searching for forum rules on specifics about when PM is available.

I'm fairly new to the forums, and I'm having a PM issue as well, mine says box full with 0 messages in inbox and outbox. What admin did you email?

I have also "private messaging disabled"
It was open, and I were using it. But now it is disabled.
Do someone know why?

I'm a relatively new user (actually forgot my old account from 10+ years ago so just created a new one) and I'm in the same boat as everyone else posting here. I see "private messaging disabled" and the green bar that has showed up since I verified my email:

Thank you for verifying your account!
In order to use the PM system and be a full fledged member of this community, you will have to make a certain number of verified post replies and wait 7 days for your account to be upgraded.

I have no idea how many "a certain number of verified post replies" is, so not sure if I'm anywhere near the required count. I'm well past the specified 7-day period.

Just adding my experience - I hit 10 posts, in a mix of off topic and other categories, and the following day my green banner disappeared, I now have PM enabled.

Still not unlocked... I don't know how to get it to unlock then. My account has been active for more than 7 days and I have been making posts... I would love for PMs to work to get more detailed helped on coding and iDrive firmware updates.

Edit: That actually did it, I think you need 10 posts (or 10 replies on threads, if there is a difference). PM seems to be enabled now.
