    This is quite a confusing forum package. "My name is Jeff" has sent me a "New Profile Post". What do I do? How do I respond to "My name is Jeff"? I've searched - before anyone tells me to! His profile is locked. I don't even know what a "Profile Post" is. On any other forum package I could send someone a PM (Personal Message). I've recently found that I can do that, under another name, and it's not personal.

    Clearly I'm as thick as 2 bricks on a damp day, so will somebody please gently explain to me what I do to respond "My name is Jeff".

    Cheers

    Click on your name at the top of the page here, then Conversations. You also should've gotten a pop up window you could've clicked on that would've taken you to it, unless you have pop-ups blocked in your browser.

    Hey Dins!
    You were able to respond to the PM I sent you so I think Jeff may have his computer configured with ad blockers.
    I was not able to send him a PM (Start a Conversation on this forum) but I could send you one.

    OK.
    If you click on your name then on the left side look for privacy settings, at the bottom it allows you to turn on or off conversations.
    Jeff may have his restricted.

    Yep, mine's OK, so Jeff probably has his turned off.
    So, a "Personal Message" is called a "Conversation", but it's not personal - anyone can read it. Is that so?
    However, what on earth is a "Profile Post"? There's a whole list of new ones below the "New Posts" down the right hand side. Mine one is still the latest one. I can't work out any useful meaning to a "Profile Post".

    So, thus far, I have no way to contact Jeff with private contact info. I either make it public (NEVER a good move on the intergoogle) or forget about trying to meet up with Jeff next year?

    Conversation is private, nobody sees it unless invited to that conversation.
    No idea about "Profile Post" but I'll explore.
