Windows 7: Private messages

Private messages

If there is no option in my personal profile to send a private message, does this mean I don't have sufficient privileges?

Nothing's missing. You don't see this option here in your User CP?

On the left hand side of your 'UserCP', scroll to Send Message. Is that missing?

Also should see the option from "Quick Links" at the top, and from clicking on the users name like was mentioned.

The Contact information on users profiles has been removed for now because it was showing email Addresses for IM contacts (messenger, yahoo etc)

I got this from the top (from John aka z3r010, 1 week ago)

You can still send PM's the way Aaron just showed

You must also "Enable Private Messaging" in "Edit Options" of your Control panel:

That was for a different matter altogether (member personal security, to reduce/eliminate SPAM). It DOES NOT affect our PM system.

I know that, but it effects the way i used to send PM's to people I usually used the contact tab on peoples profiles to send them PM's.

Anyways, why not just put up a warning against spam if you choose to show your email there? (like you can choose between publishing your email or not)

Old Private Messages
I am trying to find out the date of when I got each of my badges. I was told by the staff, that info is not kept. I thought I could look back on my PM and find some reference to my badge dates. Is there anyway to retrieve all of the old PM's?
