I'm a new member of the forum & am trying to contact another member about an item he has listed in the classified section. It says I need admin approval to send a PM, presumably because I'm a new member & they're trying to stop spammers. How do I go about getting admin approval for this?

I found a relevant forum post, but emailing the address mentioned in there for Alan resulted in a "Delivery to the following recipient has failed permanently" message. https://grassrootsmotorsports.com/forum/off-topic-discussion/private-messages/83240/page1/

Thanks!

You can send me $9.99. Understand that I'm not an Admin and I cannot approve you to send a PM, but you can sent me $10 bucks.
Sorry, that's all I have.
Yeah, post in the thread and I'm sure you'll be contacted.

Well that would be the easy thing to do. I appreciate the nigerian scammer-esque response. That gave me a chuckle.

If you outlaw iphones, then only criminals will have iphones, at least until a new model comes out at which point they will all line up outside an apple store.

Unfortunately yahoo doesn't play nicely with the forim PM feature. I updated your permissions but you may still have trouble with PMs through the forum. If you want me to share your email address with Sonic so that he can contact you directly I can do that.

Thank you. If I update to a gmail, that will work better?
