    Default How to send a private message

    Since my initial post said to send a pm I thought I'd better make sure that everybody knows how to do it! There are several ways to do this, a couple of them are listed below.

    If you have someone's post open and wish to send them a pm you can click on their name. A drop down box will appear and you can select the option to send a private message.

    Another option is to select the member list icon at the top of the page.

    Browse the list to find the member who you wish to send a pm to and click on their name, their profile will then appear.

    From the profile, there is a button which you can click to send a private message.

    Either option will open a new message. You then just need to type whatever you wish to say and scroll down the page to select submit message.
