    I have a part needed by another member. In accessing the Repair - Parts Wanted area of the MB, we are urged to communicate using private messaging. I would do that if I knew just how to go about it. Can someone post some step-by-step instructions?
    As always, thanks in advance.......

    Click on their user name & "Start a Conversation" - Private Message is a term from our old software. In our new software, PM's are called Conversations.

    Isn't that the way it usually works? :chuckling:
    I edited post#1 in the clock & watch parts wanted threads to use the term "Conversation" instead of "Private Message"

    We should refer to them as private conversations and encourage folks who need that to go forth and converse

    You can also access the private conversation tool from your icon at the upper right side of your screen. Numbers there mean you either have messages, alerts or are being summoned to a thread. You should check out all of the options available up there ;)
