No. It's not. The usual requirement is for a member to have 10 plus posts for the Pm option to work.
You may try again at this time as you have 10 posts now. However, if this is reference to the survey you wish to pursue then you already have your interm response. It stays locked until you receive permission from the admin-owner to conduct it as per my edit your post. Feel free to PM Red Clay at your convenience.
I have as I indicated put it in the mod subforum for his review. He should be getting back to you shortly.
If this is not reference that... then my apologies and you should attempt to PM Nick again.
