Direct Messages

Direct Messages (or DMs) are a great way to connect individually with people you follow on the Forum.  DMs are designed for you to communicate with one other user at a time.

Viewing Direct Messages

When someone sends you a DM, it will show up in the Notifications near your profile picture at the top of the site.
You can also view your DMs any time by going to My Account > Direct Messages.

Sending Direct Messages

Start a DM by either going to My Account > Direct Messages and clicking New Message, or by visiting a user's profile page and clicking Send Direct Message.
Remember that you can only send a DM to users that you follow, and you may only send a DM to one person at a time.
Note: You can only create a limited number of new direct message conversations per day.<br>

Deleting a Single Direct Message Post

Click the small pencil on the bottom right of the post

Next, click the delete button.

Deleting an Entire Direct Message Thread

The owner/originator of any thread can delete it at any time.  Simply click the pencil icon just right of the DM title

Next, check the delete box and press submit.

Direct Message Notifications

Choose how you would like to be notified of DMs by selecting the notification option at the top of the DM pages.  You can change the setting for all DMs, or customize your notifications in an individual DM.
