    Hey @briski

    1. You go to the account of the one you want to talk to

    2. You choose the option Start Conversation in their account

    3. Simple as that

    It’s true that some newer accounts do not have that ‘Start A Conversation’ option, but it’s something we can fix. If anyone is reading this that cannot start a convo, only respond to them, let us know!

    I'm not sure where on the screen I should be looking for the "start conversation" - would it be top, bottom, left, right, dead centre etc? At any rate I can't seem to find it.

    Is it related to the member status - mine reads "Senior Member", while others say "Senior Registered"?

    @briski Still an issue, unfortunately.

    @everyone else

    Didn't read Page 2 but everybody whose profile i click to don't have a "Start Conversation" link when i click their username and I was wondering if the mods/admins could kindly fix this for me.


    Thank you.

    Hi Kaye,

    I just started a conversation with you. For me its (1) sign in, (2) click on the person's name, (3) click the "start a conversation" option when their profile pops up--that's all that's required. So, very simple on mine. If you're not getting that option there must be a problem. So, hopefully someone can fix that.

    Cordially,
    S&S
