 Sending Private Messages
You can only send private messages to other forum members if you are a registered forum member. To do this, find the person you want to send a message to on the member list and click the “Private Message” button or look for this button at the bottom of one of their postings. When you click this, up will come a box in which you can type a message which will only be visible to the person you’ve sent it to. Click submit and it will go to their inbox for them to read. You can reply to private messages by clicking the “Post Reply” button at the bottom.
If the message you sent to someone is still in your Outbox all it means is that the person you are sending it to hasn't yet opened it! When they have opened it it goes in to your 'Sentbox'
Sometimes if you send a PM to someone you think is on line and wonder why you don't get a reply it can be:-
- They were in the middle of typing a reply to a post and the only way they can continue is to close the pop-up message box, continue with the post they are typing and then hopefully they will remember to go and look at the message! (some of us don't remember ) Or....
- The five minute delay in refreshing means that their name is showing as still logged in but they have in fact gone off to make a cup of tea! They will find it next time they login.
 I cannot send private messages!
There are three reasons for this; you are not registered and/or not logged on, the board administrator has disabled private messaging for the entire board, or the board administrator has prevented you individually from sending messages. If it is the latter case you should try asking the administrator why.
 I keep getting unwanted private messages!
In the future we will be adding an ignore list to the private messaging system. For now, though, if you keep receiving unwanted private messages from someone, inform the board administrator -- they have the power to prevent a user from sending private messages at all.
 Sending an E-Mail through the forum
You can do this in the same way as sending a Private Message. Simply click on the e-mail button in a member's profile or in one of their postings and you will get a posting box in which you can type a message which will be sent directly to that person's e-mail address. Not everyone has the e-mail facility activated so you may need to use the PM system instead.
 I have received a spamming or abusive email from someone on this board!
We are sorry to hear that. The email form feature of this board includes safeguards to try to track users who send such posts. You should email the board administrator with a full copy of the email you received and it is very important this include the headers (these list details of the user that sent the email). They can then take action.
