When we launched the new site, we included the ability to send individual, private messages from member to member. However, we have struggled with spam users sending private messages via the site, so I have disabled the feature for now.
I don’t think many of you used private messages, so this should not be a big change. You can always tag individuals using “@” in the forums.
I apologize if you received a spam message or if you had trouble logging in as we were troubleshooting this issue.
