Hi All,

I'm trying to get used to this new look forum. I'm trying to message another forum member but when I start a conversion with the person it says I can't do it. Is starting a conversation the correct way to message?

Any help would be appreciated

Hi mate

click the little envelope icon top right of the screen and select start a conversation

start to type recipients user name and choices will come up add a title
type your message then send it

hopefully that’s right, I’m still getting used to it myself!

good luck

Thanks for that!

I tried it but it says
You may not start a conversation with the following recipients:

I guess the person I'm trying to contact doesn't allow personal messages?

That only allows me to follow or ignore unfortunately
I get this if I click on your profile so if there’s no conversation button I’d suggest they’ve turned it off 🤷‍♂️

Hi - I am also new to the forum and have a similar problem - but when I click on the envelope icon I don't get a "start conversation" option - just a message saying I have no recent conversations. Anyone seen that before? Thanks.

New rule designed to stop message spammers.

I'm sure that if you reply to Blackbeard in that thread he'll sort you out.

Understand the reasoning. Personally I am trying to talk to conradrithblat about some figures he has posted for sale. I can't message him for the reasons mentioned above but he also says he can't message me either so, other than through a public thread, we are a bit stuck.

I understand. Just reply to blackbeard in the linked thread and you should be okay.
