How do I send someone a private message or ask one person a question?

We didnt have a choice, it was called "private message" on vbulletin, when we switched platforms to xenforo it became "Start a conversation"
I get that not really rollitups fault, its a bunch of stupid xenforo program managers .

I just spent two hours trying to send a private message. while the concept of conversations amongst multiple parties sounds cool, most people on these forums just want to send a message to a single person without others eavesdropping.

https://www.rollitup.org/t/how-to-use-the-riu-faq.822686/

its the very first thread on support forum

if you looked for 2 hours...did you not see the whole INBOX thing at the top right beside your name?
inbox is a very well known terminology for private affairs like emails

the inbox doesn't say anything about sending a private message, just the conversation thingy

So is the “start a conversation “ a private conversation? Just looking for input from a “well known member”. Thanks.
It’s private in the sense that we own this website and own any content you Put here and can see what you do in private but other memebers can’t Like regular users
So if you’re using it for illegal shit we will find that and ban you ;)

hope that helps

No not at all. Just looking to ask questions without other input is all. It seems you can get a better/legit answer that way without 3rd party interference/input imo. By all means look at what I ask. And to be completely transparent it’s about a breeder and there opinion of them. No illegal shit will go down by me I assure you of that.

Yes it’s private to others but not admins

Wait, hold up a second, are you saying that you (admins) can/do read our private messages?
I need some clarification on this please. Not much private about that. So I’m wondering.

Like it is a situation where you guys have certain words flagged and they pop up on your radar? im all for keeping the bad shit from happening, but im also for privacy. So im just wondering what the criteria is for an Admin checking my pms?

if you want true privacy a private website that you dont own where you signed every bit of content over when you joined here isnt where you wanna be.

We own everything you write or put on here. Users agree to that when they join. In short and blunt there is no true privacy in a website you have no ownership in. Admins can see everything if they so chose to. We literally own the website and ALL content.

There are times when checking someones personal messages happens but its rare, and only the admins do it not mods. We dont go reading for shits and giggles if thats what youre thinking

typical reasons we see your pm's also happen when someone reports a message they sent or received, typically this is from harassment from another member, selling, trading posting their address and wanting it removed etc
selling trading gifting seeds etc.

We dont sit here and read your pms, just like we cannot read every single post on this website but we often get alerted to violations of tos via pms, like we do the entire forum.

I can however assure you those with access, are the ones who have access to the entire rest of your account, so we know your ip your email etc everything youve done to sign up here, your birthdate if you inputting it , your name if you did as well everything, and those people are trustworthy as we have been the sole operating admins of the site since launch.

Thank you for the response and clarification.

thats the stupidest thing I ever heard about. change the name "private message" to "start a conversation" while everybody knows what private message is and nobody knows what "start a conversation" is and the verb "start a conversation" gives absolutely no indication that the conversation is between two parties and not the general population.
I do not see "start conversation" option when clicking avatars: only follow or ignore options. please advise.
