Private Messaging (PM's, Conversations)

Private messaging (aka personal conversation) is like a private thread/discussion viewable to only those invited to join the conversation. You can invite people at any stage in the conversation. If there is a response to a conversation, or you have been invited into one, then you will get an Alert in your Inbox at the top right of the page.

To start a new conversation

Hover over your name at the top right of the page then click on preferences. Then this will take you to your preferences page where you can click on Start New Conversation.
Click on a members name or avatar, and click Start a Conversation to communicate directly with them.

To respond to a conversation

You will get an Alert in your Inbox next to your name top right of the page. Hover over this and your Inbox will appear. Click on the conversation and it will appear. You can reply using the box at the bottom which will have your avatar next to it much like a normal post.

Inviting Others

To invite more people into the conversation just click on the Invite More at the bottom of the Conversation Participants to the right of the page. You will get a pop up where you can add in more members. It is worth noting that when added the new participants can view the conversation that happened before they were added.

Leave a Conversation

Once you are done with the conversation and wish to leave just click on the Leave Conversation text at the top right of the conversation. This will bring up a pop up asking if you still want to be informed of future conversation in that particular personal conversation.
