    Hi there, @magnus. As far as I know, there aren’t any requirements. However, I’ll have an admin look under the hood to see if all is well with your account (@Tinkerman? @ChrisR?)
    As a side note, PMs here are called ‘conversations’. Have you tried to ‘start a conversation’ with another member? If you go to another person’s profile, you should see the option to do that.

    I moved magnus status to Senior Registered, that should do it. We've had a glitch a time or two recently with the status. Let me know if this works. ~Tman

    @Tinkerman
    Good morning! I hope I am not abusing Magnus's space by asking this question here, but I seem to have the same issue regarding the ability to start conversations.
    As my status is already Senior Registered, would you mind checking if there is anything you can do on your side to allow this possibility for me?

    Thank you very much and have a beautiful day!
    Benjamin

    Either I am blind or it is still not working for me. I can only reply to people who start conversations first, but I cannot find an option to initiate my own. Been poking around on people's profiles now a few times. Used xenforo before a lot, and have done design/admin on my own forum, using xenforo, so I don't think the problem is an inability to find the function.

    I think changing to senior registered fixes the problem
