You are not able to use the PM system until you have made 3 posts - 2 replies to this will do it!

Don't know about the Chat, maybe that has the same criteria.

Hi

Welcome to RootsChat

New members must make 2 posts before they can use the personal message system and I think the same applies to the chat room
