How to use the forum’s PM system?

Ed says in this post

…use the forum’s PM system - simply click on the OP’s avatar and click the “Message” button to open a dialog where you can send them a direct message…

But I can’t find the message button - do I overlook it?


Are you sure you’re actually logged in?

You need a certain “trust level” on the forum to be able to send PMs and since your account is very new it hasn’t reached that level yet. I’ve manually upgraded you though so you should now be able to see the “message” button.

Thank you Ed!

Hi, I’m having the same issue. Can you upgrade my account so I can send PMs?

Hi, if I could be upgraded as well that would be really helpful @ed95 ! I understand the restrictions placed but I spend a lot of time on these forums, just haven’t been logged in. And now I want to send a PM but can’t. Thanks!
