    Yeah..I don't understand it either. Seems they are 'conversations' now instead of 'private' messages (click on 'inbox'). I guess everyone can read them, so what's the point..?? If I wanted members to read it, I would just post it out in the forum. I guess you can 'lock' them , but then no one can respond. I don't see an option to make it private. It was much easier & simple to just PM a member without searching for options to keep it out of public view.

    If it's between you and another member, it's private. Conversations are just Private Messages by another name.

    Hi, Guys,

    It is a little different and puts a bit more responsibility on the sender but it is easily overcome.

    Whenever you begin a conversation it gives 3 options - open to all, locked or without doing anything it is between you and the recipients or recipients.

    To start a conversation just left click any member's name and an option box shows up - and it's the same options as above.

    Or click your name and start a conversation but entering a part of the recipients name in the send to box - it fills in the name / names and lets you choose.

    In some ways I find it a better than the phpbb pm but I also find myself fighting anything new that throws me out of my comfort zone - so much for being wiser as you age:D:D:D
