    Just curious, I never have before, but have do you send a member a message. Whenever I have looked at other members or my profile, I don't see how I could message someone or how someone could send me a message. Thanks!

    You might not have enough posts yet to pm.

    Typically you could click in a member's name which opens a black box. One of the choices in that box is 'Start a conversation'

    I must not have enough posts either! I didn't see a "start a conversation" option when I did it.

    I sent maybe 2 since I started on the forum again. One person was going through something I went through so I just said keep your head up and if you need guidance feel free to ask. I can't remember the other. I don't make it a habit.

    You probably need more posts to your credit. I will try to pm you.

    There are some settings in the profile that controls messaging. I'm not at a point where I can give explicit directions, but I believe I remember them being there when my account was transitioned. But there is also the mysterious post count that also controls the accounts also.

    It used to be 30, but the mods think it is much higher now - though we haven't been told what the actual number is.

    Hi Can you help me send another person one private message please? I was discussing study tips with that person and I need more help. But my post count is very low, so probably i cannot send private message right now. Thank you!

    What is the name of the member? I will see the message, just to let you know.

    It seems that other member posted his/her email address on the other thread?
