This came up today, so I thought I'd throw this out there so it shows up more easily in search. Might even make it to a sticky post. If you wish to send a PM, there are (at least) two ways to do it. First option: Select the name of the person to whom you'd like to send a message. From the popup that appears, select "Start a Conversation": Second option, especially useful if you'd like to send a message to more than one person: Click the messaging icon at the top right of the page, then select "Start a Conversation": Next, start typing the name of the person to whom you'd like to send a message. A list will appear containing names that match what you've typed. The more you type, the more list filters out. Select the name of the recipient. Lather, rinse, repeat for each additional person you'd like to add to the conversation: Lastly, type your message and click the "Start a Conversation" button. Now you're conversatin'!
