Northstar, your PM's are sending. I have received them and answered. I know its a fluke in the system and even mine seem to sit in my outbox, but eventually does transfer over to sent. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Under the Discussion group: Frequently Asked Questions, you will find you have to get through the approval process prior to receiving PM privileges. You have posts pending approval and they will be approved as I go through all those waiting.
FAQ and the discussion Group: Frequently Asked Questions are two different things.
Why can't I PM? by vpainter » Thu Nov 14, 2013 8:28 am
PM privileges are granted after the approval process is completed. Your first several posts must be approved prior to them appearing in the forum. This could take a day or to or up to a week if the volunteer moderator's lives are busy or they are traveling.
Everyone learns patience as they go through the hiring process to work for Aramco. Patience is needed for post approvals sometimes to. Thank you.
