When trying to send a private message I get the message below. How long is a period of good standing? Thanks!

You have not met the PM privilege requirements for sending out PMs. Access to PMs is given to users after a period of good standing during which they have been active members of the community.

The magic number seems to be 500 posts.

500 is not a magic number, and this has been explained near uncountable times by the administration here.

Worked for me and a bunch of others, but I'm sure the hamsters like to keep people guessing.

No, there is an algorithm.

I'm not in the mood to go hunt up a link for the explanations.

I never had asked about PM privileges, and didn't ask if there
was a restriction. It just worked!

It's the "cool kid" restriction. If you're cool, you can send PM's. If you're an asswipe, no PM'S FOR YOU!

The mods are like the soup nazis. PM nazis.

Yeah, as I understand it, its sorta like a moving target - the idea being, I think, to make it harder for would-be abusers to game the system.
