If you want to send a private message in the forum, go to the top right corner of your screen when you are logged in. You should see an icon of a box that looks like an arrow is pointing into it. Click on that icon and then click on New Message in the pop-up window. Then just type the screen name of the person you want to send the message to.

Thanks for @msaeric for the new Free Stuff category!

Note that this is different from posting a (public) message on someone's wall. To do that see:

    I did it by clicking the person's name, which opened their page. From there I clicked 'message' on the top right of the page. ;)

    If you're on mobile view, the message icon is on the bottom left next to notifications. I'm on Android, so it may look a little different for iOS.

    Is there a way to message people who are on MSA but not on this forum?

    @Love2323 the PM area on an iPhone is here (see attached). Also, you can edit your posts after you post with the little gear icon on the right of your post.

    @Love2323 You can't close your account yourself, you will need to message @chris to delete it for you.
