How to send a private message

There’s been some confusion about how to send a personal message as opposed to making a public reply. If you hit “Reply” under another post, that will appear as a PUBLIC reply.

If you want to send a PRIVATE message, you need to click on the avatar (the little round photo or capital letter) of the person you want to send the message to. That will pop up a box with a blue button that says “Message.” (See image below.) So remember, if you want to send a PRIVATE message to someone on the board, click on their avatar, then click the blue Message button.
