    I don't see a Start button under Conversations for starting a PM with someone. Can an admin please assist me with this?

    Thank you.

    It looks like this

    The button is not on your own side. First, you go to the profile of a member you want to speak with.

    Neither do I. As far as I know it has to do with permissions being messed up when the forum was moved, and PMs becoming a privilege once you reach certain posts (by mistake). Has to be fixed by the administration for each particular case.

    Hi there,
    Sorry for the same question. How can I start a new conversation? Searched for it all around, but can´t find it.
    Thanks!
