Trouble messaging others even with over three identifications for others

When I try to message someone, I get the message “must have three verifiable observations or three identifications for others to do that.” I have made 12 observations for others; when will I be able to message another iNaturalist uesr?

Hi Kristine, welcome to the iNat Forum! The system only runs that check periodically - it’s not instant. I believe it can take an hour or so until you’re granted the ability to send messages. (Looks like it’s been about 45 minutes since you made your third identification.)


You should be able to message others now.
