I am trying to contact a member regarding a pattern, but every time I try to send it, it says I have to be a member for 5 days. I am a member for 5 days already and not able to send a message. What am I doing wrong? Thanks for the help.

I'll bet it will work tomorrow.... your header says you joined on the 1st; today is the 5th. The system probably considers that 4 days, not 5.

You also have to be a Friend of PR (paid membership) to send a PM to anyone other than a moderator. You can reply to PMs but not initiate them as an unpaid member.

I thought there was a period when you got the benefits of a full member for free?! I guess you can't send PMs. What you have to do is ask that member whom you would like to PM in a thread on the message board to write YOU a PM - then you can respond! That works. Welome to PR!

Sorry for the edit - it's always typos that matter with me....sigh.

There is. That's about 30 days or so. After that, you gotta pay to play.
