Okay, this may seem like a redundancy, but I wanted to touch base on it anyway.
Lately, I have seen a few posts here and there where members are asking questions that are unrelated to the topic at hand to specific people.
While we encourage inquiries while seeking information, we also encourage the use of private messages.
To contact another member via PM, there are several ways to go about it.
1. Search the Member list for the member you wish to message, then click on their name to view their profile, and select "Send personal message"
2. In a topic you can click their name to go to their profile. Example: Yoda
3. There is a profile icon in the member information on each post it looks like this:
4. There are also other icons that you can click to go directly to the messenger system they look like this:
Clicking any of those in a member's information bar on each post in a topic will take you to the PM window. It looks like the following picture below.
Here you can enter your message and select who it goes to, how it is saved in your outbox, and other options.
