Howdy there,

This tutorial is going to cover the action of sending a private message to someone on BodyMod.org.

To begin, find the person's profile that you want to send the private message to. One of the ways you can do this is to click on the person's avatar that you see in the forum.



After you click on their avatar or get to their profile some other way, you will be greeted with their profile. It has their name, journal posts, mod pictures, and more. We will be looking underneath their userpic for the "Send (USERNAME) a Private Message" link. It will be a button that is shaped like a pencil and a pad of paper, click on this.



This link will bring you to the message page, it contains the following:
- A "To Username:" textbox where you can type in the username of the person you want to receive the private message if it isn't already typed in the box. You may also select a person from your buddy list by clicking on the " | - - None Selected - - || v | " box.
- A "Subject:" textbox that allows you to give this message a subject, or title, that describes it so the person receiving it can decide whether or not to read the message. If it is urgent or not-important, this is where you would say that.
- A "Message:" textbox, which is where you type the message you want the other person to receive. You can use emoticons (To the left of the message-box) or use special fonts and properties of text such as bold, italics, and underlined (Above the message-box).
- A set of buttons at the top to either send the message, preview how it will look to the other person, or clear the form.



Once you click on "Send Private Message" you will be brought to the "My Messages" screen which has "( i ) Your Private Message Has Been Sent! " at the top of the screen. On the left side of the screen you will see things such as " Inbox " and " Outbox ". To view the message you sent, click on " Outbox " and then click on the subject of the message you sent.



That's it! You've sent a private message.

If there are any questions, as always, you can private message me (And now you know how)

Regards,
V4
