    I am trying to use "Conversations" and I cannot for the life of me fine "start new conversation". Am I completely blind?

    Thanks for sending the rules. Certainly I intend to abide by all rules. But I'm confused - am I asking a question I shouldn't ask, asking it in the wrong place, or are you saying, it's there, I have to find it? Sorry... I see conversations, and I'd think that's what I want, but I can't see "start new conversation" so I must be either really stupid (possible) or maybe not authorized for it.

    If your interested in sending a PM to other forum members, you just left click on the person's user name. When the drop down list displays, select profile page. When the profile page displays, you'll see a box that says "type something" once you've completed your message, click post. That's all you need to do.

    If that doesn't work? Then left click on your inbox between your user name and alerts on the upper right hand corner. When the inbox opens, click on start a new conversation and then type in the person's user name and take it from there.

    Yeah, exactly, that's where I started out "conversations" but here's the thing I cannot find "start new conversation" button on the conversations page. That's what I was saying, I must either be blind, or else I'm not auth for it yet? THANKS.

    I just tried it as well. Got the following error message.


    The following error occurred:
    Participants:
    You may not start a conversation with the following recipients: James Morse.

    This is more than likely due that your not authorized for it at this time. Therefore for the time being, your only other option is to follow the first step that I provided you with :shrug:

    Ok. Yeah I would say probably not authorized. I have a forum myself I manage so I'm pretty familiar with authorizations. What's the best way for me to request auth for PM's? "Contact us" link? Thanks again.

    You cannot request it.. Until you've met the minimum amount of posts submitted in the forums, only then will you be authorized to submit PM's.. If you have any further questions? then try the "contact us" link.

    OK, so it's probably auto-authorize setup. Guess I'll have to just go with that. Not trying to make waves... thanks again.

    you're too new, it's an anti-spammer process, I'll get you squared away

    also generally users call that a "PM" or Private Message.
