    Can't figure out how to privately contact someone. What am I missing?

    Use the conversations feature. I will send one to you.

    You should now see a message in your inbox.

    Just an additional comment on the conversation feature. To delete your messages you have two options. Both involved Leaving a conversation. When you click on the leave button it will give you two options... one is to be able to receive future messages from the others involved in the conversation and if that happens another message will show up in your inbox. The other is to choose to not have any other messages allowed to be received by you for that conversation ... in that case the message is for all intents-and-purposes, deleted from your view.

    You can also edit an entry in the conversation and that edit will show up on the other end also! ;)

    Enjoy the ride!

    Thanks - I'd tried it but the first time it just got erased. Is it just me or is this cumbersome compared to PM or being able email the person directly (eg privately)?

    Not sure what you mean it just got erased. It will only get erased if you leave the conversation. If you do not leave the conversation it will stay in your inbox. It is actually more functional than PM as you have a conversation and the thread continues in the single entry in the inbox as opposed to multiple messages. Did you get the conversation from sobore?

    But if you do not the leave the conversation, everybody can see it when accessing your profile, right?

    No that should not be the case ... conversations are private between the people on the conversation.

    You may be thinking of the profile postings that if you allow people to see they can see people post comments in your profile. That is different than a conversation. A conversation is private except to those on the conversation list.

    Would you check on my profile when you have time?

    Thanks. But I do not think I am confusing both. Probably conversations are not visible for you.

    The only thing I can see from someone else is a single profile post. I can also see the postings you have made on MP. But if you have conversations I do not see any of course. You can look at my profile also. I have a number of active conversations, not profile posts.

    Yes that is correct - but I have a large number of conversations which you do not see.

    Yes - got the conver from sobore. By erased I didn't mean MP did it exactly, I hit post but hadn't put in a title. It gave me an error message, but when I went back what I had typed was erased
