I've been a 'lurker' on head-fi for a quite a while and love the community and wealth of information available but I haven't been an active member in terms of posts. Yesterday I was communicating with a seller in the headphones for sale forum and was about to 'close' a deal with the member and all of a sudden there was no tab to reply to his last pm. There was a message(and actually is still is) near the top of the screen that stated(states) that I've reached my maximum alottment of 2 pms/day. I was bummed because I lost the deal :p. I also feel bad that I can't even explain or apologize for my lack of communication with the seller(I tried posting a general comment below his ad that I hope he sees/saw). I've been looking through FAQ's etc and poking around the site to see whether there was some sort of premium membership that I need to have or whether maybe I need a minimum number of posts(which seems a little unfair as I'm more of a listener/reader than active poster type). Anyway, Ive had trouble finding any info. and even though it's a day later I'm still unable to pm anyone. Anyway, I certainly feel like the site could be improved in terms of ease of finding any of this info. Could anyone shed any light on this for me? Perhaps a moderator? I'm certainly willing to become a premium member if that exists as I regularly get a lot of valuable info from the site(although often I don't even log in to do so as I'm reading headphone reviews or what have you).
Thanks a lot!
