How do I send a private message?

You can send a private message one of two ways:

1) If you click on a user name next to a post, it will take you to that user's board profile page. The option to send a private message is tucked away on the lower part of the right column.

2) Alternatively, you can click on the "my private messages" link under your "quick links" option (in the upper right of the page) and that will take you to your "inbox" where you can choose to compose a new message -- so if you know the user name of the person you'd like to PM, you can type it in there. If a user has opted not to receive private messages, you will not be able to send a private message to that user.
