Where is the private message option?

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.

Try this:

Click on avatar choose envelope.

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. :slight_smile:

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.
