I understand this was put in place to protect against spammers, but I personally am finding this to be troublesome.
I have gotten on-board with the Database Errors correction project and have made over 3000 (and counting) corrections in the past 6 days. Most corrections are trivial and do not require direct contact with a Profile Manager (IMO). However, there are times when I wish to message a PM, and there was a recent thread requesting better communication. I am locked out daily from contacting anyone either by PM or by commenting on their profile. I was recently contacted by someone apparently upset by the removal of the word Unknown in a place field - I would like to talk to him about it but can't.
Is there a way to bypass the lockout? I assume leaders can send unlimited messages. I am not saying you need to make everyone a leader, but perhaps a there is a way to create a category of WikiTree Genealogists which, once verified (as non-spammers), can send out unlimited messages?
