    Hi, are Conversations like PM's and are only seen by the person you are messaging? Or are they like "Conversation Street" on The Grand Tour and visible to the whole World. I hope not! Regards Ray

    Should be just like PMs, but you can attach images to the conversations. Just between you and the recipient.

    Ray when you start a conversation there are two options at the bottom. One allows others to join in and another one to lock the conversation.

    You can practice by sending me one if you wish.

    This seems a little misleading. The "allows others to join in" applies ONLY to users who are already participants in the conversation. Participation is by invitation only. The person who initiated the conversation can allow other participants to invite other users... or not. No one else can even see that the conversation exists. Admins/Mods could see the conversation, but we WON'T invade anyone's privacy unless one of the participants reports some sort of abuse in a conversation. We DO NOT monitor private conversations in any way, unless we need to investigate a report.

    I have not seen anyone use it and would be very unlikely to do so myself, but there is an option to "leave" a conversation also. The conversation starter can invite additional participants at any time but they must be invited either by the starter by another authorized party.

    We have both forums and profile pages where public remarks may be made. I have noticed that many people start private discussions on profile pages. I suspect those folks are Face Book users. :)
