How can i change my PHPBB2 script to require users to have AT LEAST a minimum number of 20/30/40... public messages in the boards if they want to send someone a private message?

I have a problem, that many users register in my boards with the only purpose to send private messages to other users, but they don't post messages in the boards, so they don't contribute to keep them alive.

phpbb3 is completely different than phpbb2
I suggest that you upgrade to 3 (since 2 is going to be dropped for support next year )and then use that script.
