Contributing is more than just getting Private Messaging and the ability to turn off Ads.

And as for your answer sakeeb, everyone is a free user as in, anyone can use this site by registering. Becoming a Contributing Member is mainly for the support for this site with a few more extra's that is.

To use private messaging at all you need to be a contributing member. As I have said before offering Private Messaging was something I planned on never doing. I think that members would start asking too many questions via PM which would defeat the purpose of the forum.

And that would be a bad thing, we wouldn't want members just PM'ing others in private to get answers while it could be benefitting others here on the forums.
I mainly use it to send a message when I rather not deal with sending an email at the time.
