Is there still the option to private message the poster?
Quick answer: no, it’s been disabled “for legal reasons”.
Here’s couple of related threads with further discussion.
We do not allow private messages on the new platform.
Sorry, legal wants it all closed down. We offered up the opt in idea a while back but no go.
As I’ve said in a few other posts, the messaging is inactive for legal reasons. I’ve seen the same pop up though - it seems as though if you reply to the same person multiple times (perhaps in the same thread), the system throws that pop-up at you, suggesting that you message that person instead. It appears to be a bug that it still shows up even with messaging deactivated so I’ll be reporting it to the platform folks.
Is there a way to send private messages to other board members? Iuckily I had some old mails from Jim but I would like to contact some other board members as well.
Raylight, you are a font of knowledge. Thanks
Thanks KC, that’s encouraging. These boards (or the old ones) are a gold mine - or have been. Trying to give back and help out where I can. Sadly, my outlook for this great community is getting bleaker and bleaker, which is discouraging. A vicious circle.
