"and we can't email you directly."

In another thread this obvious statement leapt out at me for a forum suggestion:

Is it possible to have an "e-mail invite" like facebook or eBay's message system? There really are legitimate occasions where one member would like to privately converse with another without having to post an email address or phone number.

It is just a thought.

I agree... a PM system is a basic forum function that I am stunned hasn't made it into this board. This makes it possible to contact each other privately without having to post your email address.

  1. Click on the users name by the post
  2. Look at the bottom of their profile screen and locate "My comments".
  3. Leave a message there.

It's not as robust as some PM systems but it serves well.

 

Note that I've left such a comment for both of you.

Hmm Sarcasm is my love language. Obviously I love you.

Just a quick follow up note on tcblack's suggestion - comments added using the "My Comments" function are visible to other users - so lack the privacy element of "Private Message" functions on other forums. I didn't want anyone to think that they were private!

Good point Paul, Thanks for that reminder!  I'd hate for someone to post "I hate that tcblack guy" and me stumble across it.  Smile

So Paul, how do I erase the message I just sent to Donovan saying

Email"that tcblack guy doesn't know computers"

before tc runs across it?   Wink

Thanks tc for the info and Paul for the warning. It is better than posting in a thread but I'd still like private messaging

Looks like there is no easy way to delete comments :(

Well I can't delete a comment I send, but I can easily delete one I get:

See the "Delete" on the top right?
