    I cannot figure out how to "PM" someone - can someone help me out? I have gone to Conversations and I don't see a way to start new. I have gone to the user's profile... same thing.

    You need to have 10 posts before you can Start a Conversation. Did you have a question I could help with?

    Aside from posting 9 additional times so I can start a conversation?

    Why is this a rule? Seems odd

    It's to prevent spamming... makes sure you are a "real" person

    Feel free to go to the Test Board and post a few times, there may still be a bit of a time-lag after your 10th post (might be 30 minutes).

    Ok... I guess that sounds reasonable. Thanks for the assistance at least.

    And then I guess the last question - where do I actually go to create a message? From the other person's profile page?

    Yep. or from yours. click Inbox>start a conversation
    then you'd type their name in.

    Easiest is if their avatar is on the screen, you'd click it and see 'Start a Conversation'

    Ok... Thanks for the help.

    Now I guess I wait to see if it takes time to sync.

    I cannot start a conversation with you, though, so the board hasn't caught up with all your posting, yet.
