    I dont seem to have the option to send private messages. Is it because I'm new, with only a few posts?

    Thanks,

    Jeff

    Seems strange that you can't send a PM. Did you receive one when you joined? I did.

    Look at the top menu bar. Click on your user name at top bar.

    Select conversations. Then click on Start a conversation at the top.

    Edit: Or select inbox on top menu bar........then click start a conversation.

    Hey Jeff......go to your user name at top menu. Select preferences. Select fluid style.

    Is that any better?

    Hi,

    Great, I was puzzled about this, too. I'm just posting here to get to the magic number 10. Thanks for clarifying.

    We take PM capability for granted. The Raspberry Pi forums disabled PM's because they thought it could be abused. Apparently you have to post your email address to do a transaction in their For Sale area...

    I only get "coversations" sent to me from new little kids who want me to do their homework for them.

    Hello,

    I also do not reply to questions in conversations.
    I just ask them to start a thread in the forum or give a link to their thread.
    It passes by the spirit of the forum, sharing knowledge.
