    Ok I have finally given in to turning this feature on, so you can now send private messages to other users here. Now here are several things/limitations about this:

    1. When you have a new private message, it will tell you underneath your log-on info in the MAIN forum page only after you log-in. I don't know if refreshing will make new messages show up if you have received any since you logged in. This will be trial and error.

    2. You can only see messages that are sent to you. What this means is that after you send a message to someone, you won't be able to see it again unless the person replies to you. You can't look at messages you have sent until someone replies back to it. So it looks like the PM has disappeared. Not the greatest format, but I understand the UBB people are working on changing it.

    3. You send people PM's via the "PM" graphic link on any thread under the person's post, OR by going to their profile and clicking on "Send A Private Message."

    4. You check/send/delete new private messages by going to the "Your Profile" link.

    5. You can also add people to your buddy and ignore lists via THEIR profile screens. Ignorning a user will not let them send you a PM and putting a person on your "Buddy List" makes it much easier to send them a PM.

    6. I am probably missing things here, but just wanted to give it a shot and see if people like using it. If you have any questions or comments, post them here. If something looks weird, let me know that too so I can investigate.

    Enjoy!

    Theres an option for it to be turned off in the profile settings. You can also opt out of the PM feature altogether from there

    I thnk the PM setup here is easier to use than at any other site.
