Viewing Private MessagesWhen you receive a new private message, it will appear as an alert in the envelope icon within your user menu, located in the top right corner of every page. From this menu, you can view all of your recent private message conversations or start a brand new one.
Sending Private MessagesTo send a private message, click the envelope to make the PM drop down menu appear, and click 'Start a Message.' You'll be taken to a page where you can write the user you'd like it sent to, give the message a title, and, of course, write out the message itself.
Alternatively, if you don't want to fill out the username field yourself, you can send a private message to someone by going to their profile and clicking the envelope on their page.
tip! Don't forget that you can you can also report private messages if they're breaching any rules. Just because it is private, does not mean the staff does not have the ability to see it when needed. If you feel someone is breaking the rules or insulting you in any way, don't hesitate to report it so the staff can take a look.
