I would like to be able to send private messages. These messages are SAS related and not spam.
I've checked Profile -> My Settings -> Social, and there is no setting to enable private messaging.
I also note the help page https://communities.sas.com/t5/help/faqpage/faq-category-id/pm#pm. This seems very vague and perhaps out-of-date. For example, where is the "message count or envelope icon"? IMO this portion of the help should be updated.
Have it enabled by one of the forum bosses. It's generally turned off for new users because of spam issues, but you're already kind of a veteran.
I have granted you permission to Private Message folks. As @Kurt_Bremser mentioned, we've had a problem with spam coming via PM from new users so we have changed permissions. Not sure why you didn't bypass the filter given your status on the community, but that is something we will look into.
Thanks for using the communities,
A big SAS-Time salute to the people who keep this thing running!
