How to Private Message

You may want to take the conversation outside of the public forum, so we have made it simple to send an individual a personal message directly.
Step 1:
On the homepage in the top right hand corner of the page next to your profile picture, there will be an envelope icon you can select. Select the envelope iconHow to PM.png

 

Step 2:
You will have a couple options at this point. You will be able to see previous conversations that you have had with other members, from which you can continue a conversation. Or you may want to select someone from your friends list and choose to start a new conversation with them. For this purpose, we will select "New Message" in the top right hand corner of the page. 2.png
