Some are asking how to send and retreive PMs. (Personal Messages) It's super easy once you figure it out!
To send a PM: Under a Diva's screen name and/or avatar, there is a little icon that looks like a notepad. Click on that and it will take you to the PM page. It will say, "Send Personal Message." Just type it like you would any post and hit "Send Personal Message" under where you type. This message will only go to the person you are PMing.
To read a PM: At the very top of this page, in the center, it says, "Hey Basketlady, you have xx messages, xx are new." When you drag the cursor over this, it will highlight and you can click on it. It takes you to your PM page and it lists your PMs. It sort of looks like your email. You can click on the individual messages to read them.
Te reply to a PM: It's very similar to replying to a thread. You click on "Reply" and do your thing.
When I first joined this message board (I had never joined a MB before and was completely clueless), there was a friend who pretty much took me by the hand and walked me through all of the details about posting, PMing, etc. I was so grateful for the time that she spent to get me started, so that I didn't feel nearly so lost!
A bit of help along the way has probably been useful to several of us!
