As I´m new to this forum: is there any way to write a private message? Strangely I didn´t find a way so far.

Thanks Erwin. Unfortunately I can´t see any enevlope. In general I´m a forum-user since 1998 and never came across such a funny problem.
Maybe you need to hit a minimum level first, like time or number of posts before messaging.
As per the official post on user trust levels on Meta…
[quote]Users at trust level 0 cannot…
- Send private messages to other users
- “Reply as new topic” via Link button (UI removed)
- Flag posts
- Post more than 1 image
- Post any attachments
- Post more than 2 hyperlinks in a post
- Have actual links in the ‘about me’ field of their profile (will be silently and temporarily converted to plain text)
- Mention more than 2 users in a post[/quote]
To get around this limitation, you need to be trust level 1 or higher, which you can do by:
[quote]* entering at least 5 topics
- reading at least 10 posts
- spend a total of 10 minutes reading posts[/quote]
Ah, okay. Thanks for the explanation, bennyling.
