You indeed need Gold to send messages from Xbox.com. One of the many small perks.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.

It is a free Gold weekend, but I'm not sure if that allows website messaging. It's just geared to give people a taste of online play, and the various other programs/apps that are available to Gold members (in a hopes that it will then sway them to buy Gold themselves).

I may be completely wrong with that though. I haven't been Silver for a while now. Perhaps someone with a Silver account could try sending a message on the site and let us know if it works. :)

As I understand it, this is correct.  The Free Gold Weekends do not actually change an account from Free to Gold, it simply lifts the restrictions on certain Gold-only features, making them available to all.

Sadly, free Gold Weekends don't have an affect on the site. Just through the console for the account itself
