    Just a quick tip for sending private messages/conversations that cannot be viewed by others. Click on the desired persons avatar and locate the start conversation tab and click on it. It will take you to a conversation/private message screen and you can enter you subject and text there. Once done click the start conversation button.

    Alternatively, you can use the inbox tab at the top of the page by your name and it will take you to your inbox. There is a tab at the top for "start conversation" and once you hit that it will bring you to the conversation/private message screen. You will need to add the recipient by starting to spell their name and then select the entry from the drop down menu. Type your subject and message and hit the start conversation button.

    Thanks and enjoy.

    You have to load it to the media section of the forum first. That’s the only way I have been able to do it.

    I guess I’ll try that. There has to be a way to turn the button on the PMs like the regular threads... hint hint ;)

    Bump for new members. “Start a conversation” is your private messaging area.
