Someone else was able to send me one, but I am not able to reply. How can this problem be fixed?

I haven't tried yet, but I think you have to be here a while or have a certain amount of posts or threads in order to do it.

but like someone said its just ats;s archaic post/reward system, i dont get it either.

I tried the box showed up. But the advertising ad 're direct didn't show but did when I opened the thread. It does with every thread.

You have to have I think 20 posts or so before you can send private messages. It's not's a method of spam prevention. Many forums do this with a lot of success. You shouldn't have any trouble reaching 20 posts on ATS either.

See also this thread:

We have a private message system at ATS, these are u2u's. When you get one your Members Center box in your tool bar will be flashing red, just click on it. You also go there to send a u2u. You have to have 20 posts before sending to other members but you can message the staff at any time.
