How to send a private message?

I swear there's a way to do it and I've done it. But I can't figure out how to private-message someone. Help!

You should see it on your account now.

You've incorporated Floyd, but thought I'd let you know that the comment box for a forum topic doesn't appear automatically anymore. You have to click on "add a new comment" for it to appear. Not the end of the world but if it's something you haven't updated you oughta know.

Yup. New privacy laws in Europe require explicit opt-in for communications. So if you want it, you gotta check the box (though there might be a default setting in your account, I forget).

All fine with me. What's an extra click? :)

...why there was no "send this user a private message" option on a member's page recently who wanted something I could send her. 

Aha.  Mystery solved.

You click on the person’s name under their avatar bringing you to their page.  At the bottom of the first column on the left you will see send this member a private message.

Thanks, Benito. When I hover the cursor over a name under the picture, it doesn't provide a link. I wonder if there is some setting I am missing maybe?

Did you click on the name, doing that should bring you to their profile page, then follow what I posted earlier.

I am unable to click on (for example) your picture or name. Nothing happens. I will hunt around in the settings section and see if there is something that needs to be checked or unchecked. It's a mystery . . .

Maybe Floyd can shed some light? I would send him a private message but . . . .  lol.

Floyd will see your reply/request in this thread since he has posted in it above.  He may have to adjust your settings.
