I thought I would take this chance to explain how PMs now work.

First, PMs are now called "Conversations" -

How to send someone a private message
There are 2 ways to send another member a PM.

First, if you hover over INBOX on the top right, there will be a link to "Start a New Conversation", which if you click, brings you to a Message screen where you can name the member you want to have a private conversation with and write the first message to that person.


The second way, is from a post. If you click the user's name that you want to have a private conversation with, a panel comes up that includes a link to "Start a Conversation"
with that person.


Easy and Simple. :)

How to Delete Conversations
You don't actually delete conversations, you "Leave" them.

There are 2 ways to do this.
First way, from your list of conversations, simply click the checkbox of whichever conversations you want to leave. You can select multiple conversations if you like.


A box will come up that gives you several options where you can leave the conversations, mark them unread, mark them read, etc.


You can also leave a conversation right from the conversation itself by clicking the link on the top right of the conversation.


How conversations are counted and how many you can have:
Members can have 15 conversations at any given time. Once you 'leave' a conversation, its no longer in your mailbox and is no longer counted on your total.

Gold Members can have up to 1000 conversations at a time. Gold members also have the ability to upload photos in conversations. Regular members cannot upload photos in conversations.
