Hi, I would like to send a message to another member who lives near me. How would I do that?

The only way to do that right now is to see if the member you wish to contact has listed an email address in their profile, and send them a message that way.

If they have not listed an address in their profile, ask them, via a reply to one of their posts, to contact you. If YOU haven't listed a publicly viewable email address in your profile, you will have to be willing to post it on the forum.

As I mentioned once before, if you wish to have members contact you, providing an email address in your profile is pretty much a necessity. For the sake of privacy and security, it's easy to get an addition free email address from Yahoo, Gmail, Hotmal, etc. and list THAT one in your public profile.

Thanks for answering, f_klock.

Private messaging is on our list of features to add. It's hard to tell sometimes, but we're working on a lot of behind-the-scenes programming that will hopefully lead to bigger and better things.
