You're a new member with low post count and no upvotes yet, the forum software is configured so that new members can't start posting (all of your posts have to be approved by a moderator at start before normal members see them) or sending private messages until you have reached a certain "status" within the community (enough posts & upvotes). This is to prevent spammers from filling the forums up with crap and harassing members with private messages. It's annoying but necessary.

After you've made a few posts and/or get a few upvotes, the limitations are lifted and you're free to post without separate approval of each message and send private messages to other members. The actual numbers of posts and upvotes aren't public knowledge.

It's an anti spam feature. So we don't get random people making accounts messaging each person trying to sell them something, you know, like facebook.

I was first annoyed when I couldn't do anything but I appreciate this explanation. Now I understand :)
