XF 1.5 xenforo disable private message for new members

Set permissions for the Registered group (which everyone should have as their primary user group) so they can't start new conversations. Set up a user group promotion so that when a member has made X posts, they are added to a secondary user group that has permissions to start conversations.

My question for this is once a promotion is given, is there an alert? How does the user suddenly know they can now create conversations?
