    To protect privacy, this bulletin board software has no provisions for sending user-to-user email. You can, however send a private message that the recipient can read when logged into TUGBBS. Our XenForo bulletin board software calls these private messages "Conversations". Conversations look like normal forum threads, but they can only be seen by the individual participants of that particular conversation thread.

    Start by clicking on the user's name, wherever you may find it on the board (in one of their posts, Members List, etc.). This should bring up a screen overlay of their "user card":
    [Note: card layout may vary for reduced window
    sizes or mobile devices with smaller screens.]

    Click on Start a Conversation. The screen you to which you will be taken is similar to the one you see when composing a normal post to the board.

    [Alternate route: when viewing your recipient's profile, click the Information tab, then click Start a conversation.]
