How can I allow other site members to contact me by email? What if I want to contact another user by e-mail?
Please perform the following steps:
- Select "My Account" and then "My Profile" from the menu bar.
- Choose the "Edit" tab and scroll down to the "Contact Settings" section.
- Select the checkbox for "Personal contact form."
- Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click "Submit."
This will place an email icon underneath your picture on all posts throughout the site. (You won't see an icon under your picture, because you cannot send an email to yourself.) Other registered users will be able to click this icon, which will take them to a page where they can send an email.
Please note, your email address is not displayed to others during this entire process. Only if you decide to respond to the person directly by email will your address be revealed to them.
If you want to contact another user by email, you can only do so if
they have enabled the email feature through the above steps. If you
look at a post made by that user, you will see the email icon
underneath their picture. You can click on that icon to send them an
email. If there is no email icon it means that they are not open to
receiving emails from other users through our system.
You will not see this e-mail icon underneath your own picture because you cannot send an e-mail to yourself.
