This is because we have the 'Private message' function instead of the 'Email this person' function. On the old site we had both of these methods of communication. With the private message function you were able to store up to 50 messages on the site, and then to receive any more you had to delete the older ones - I found this out running WotRott.

Lois--I responded to your PM, but it looks like it may have bounced back to me in my email. Did you get a reply from me??

Good point! I wonder if they can add attachments at some point. Of course, if I need a record of the whole conversation then I can just keep it in my email. so maybe they can add email as well as private messages, like we had before. (Or maybe that's there and I just haven't run across it yet....)

But unfortunately, I can't send attachments that way....

I've had to go to the message on my profile page and send a reply from there. Then it goes to the person. I think it's because they are keeping track of the entire message trail on the profile and they wouldn't have a record of the reply it it went straight to the person's email. That's just my guess.

It seems that "PRIVATE MESSAGE" functionnality is a little different than on the previous website. When I received a message from the previous website, if I hit reply, I would send a reply to the email address of the sender. Not TQS like it is doing presently. Unless there is another hidden button I don't know about?

I think this worked. I found the cursor and wrote a message and when I hit add reply it disappeared. Hopefully it went back to the sender.

Hi Lois -
If you go back to your profile and to the messages there, click on the message you want to reply to. Below your message will be a place for you to put in your reply. There's your avatar on the left and a button on the right that says something like "Add Reply". Between those, there's a text area. On my browser, I can't see a box or anything, but when I click in the right place I get a vertical bar cursor and then I can type in text. Type your replay and then click the "Add Reply" (or whatever it is) button, and your reply should be sent. At least, that seems to have worked for me.

I recieved a pm from both Renata and Nancy but when I tried to reply nothing happened. No window opened in which to write a response. This sure is complicated. I liked getting an email response to my private messages. This is difficult. Or maybe its still not working.
