    We've been on this new format at HEF for quite some time now and in that time I've had numerous members start a "conversation" (formerly Private Messaging) with me. But in all this time I've never started a "conversation" myself. I swear, I've looked all over this place including in the bathroom closet and for the life of me I can't find where one initiates a conversation with another member. I admit I'm no computer geek, but geezzzz, what the heck am I missing???

    Ok, now that's a new mystery, no wonder I couldn't find it, that doesn't show up on my end when I click on a user profile. It appears Alrman is correct, super mods aren't to be heard from privately. LoL

    Well, that's a problem. Hopefully it's just a box that needs ticking somewhere.

    Do you have a start conversation button when you go here? [​IMG]

    Nope, and frankly that's where I expected to find it, just like any forum section you go to, at the top of the page is the link to start a new thread. But alas, no blue button for me.

    I'm beginning to think Digger has figured out a way to keep (somewhat) my big mouth shut on HEF. Bah ha ha hahahahaha

    I can't discuss this issue on the open forum, Willie. Send me a private message... :p


    (Honestly, I have no clue. I'll take a look this evening and see if there's something in your personal permissions that's missing.)
