There's been some confusion over how to send a "private message" in the new forum software. As a reminder, notice of the upgrade was given on 10th March in http://www.silverstackers.com/forum...ers-mk-iii-coming-soon-action-required.83492/ on the old forum that the migration would be happening, and that Private Messages on that version would NOT be migrated. If there are private messages you wish to save, either cut & paste them into files, or you could try the guide Silver Smurfer wrote to do this on Firefox: http://www.silverstackers.com/forum...rading-feedback-with-firefox-scrapbook.84032/ The old forum will be running to at least the end of April at the old URL: http://forums.silverstackers.com Conversations To send a private message on the new Silver Stackers, you start a Conversation with the person you wish to message. A new feature is that you can start a conversation with multiple people, e.g. three or four participants. It will look just like a regular thread on the board, but be private just to the participants. Participants can also "drop out", or be invited to join an existing conversation. These are private to the participants. You can view your conversations from the Conversation link under your profile, or through your Inbox. The quickest way to send a private message to someone is to click the Inbox tab, and click Start a New Conversation. Then you can just start typing the user(s) into the participants field, and select the correct users from the auto-search. Once you've picked the participants, entered a title, typed your message, click Start a Conversation to send the message. Participants can respond and it will read like a thread. Profile Posts These have been disabled for now. A profile post is a public post on your profile that either you or a visitor can create - anyone logged into the forum can read them. Unfortunately some users accidentally used them for trading private messages, so for now I've disabled the functionality altogether until familiarity with the new board functions increases.
