    Hey guys, I’ve had this issue for a while now, for the life of me I don’t know how to start a conversation, every time I click conversation I only see conversations previously made by another.

    Please help! :)

    I can't see a 'start conversation' button either. I can't seem to find a way to PM either.

    Some accounts lost the PM feature when the forum changed platforms. I’ve alerted admin to get this fixed for you both, @Ophelia3 & @Eva1942.

    My account was made after the change of platforms, as I think Eva’s was as well.

    Thank you.

    My account was made before the change of platforms, but I had only posted once or twice I think it was. Either way, I can’t wait for it to be fixed :)

    Still unable to create conversations. Getting a little frustrating now considering it’s been well over a year now! :)

    Still can’t PM or create a private conversation either. I know everyone’s busy, but seriously.. please fix it.

    I don't see a Start button under Conversations for starting a PM with someone. Can an admin please assist me with this?

    Thank you.

    It looks like this

    The button is not on your own side. First, you go to the profile of a member you want to speak with.

    Neither do I. As far as I know it has to do with permissions being messed up when the forum was moved, and PMs becoming a privilege once you reach certain posts (by mistake). Has to be fixed by the administration for each particular case.

    Hi there,
    Sorry for the same question. How can I start a new conversation? Searched for it all around, but can´t find it.
    Thanks!
