Take the discussion out of the forum with Private Messages! 

Private Messages

Communicate with friends and peers outside of the forum by sending a private message. To find your mailbox, click on the envelope in the upper right hand side, between the bell (notifications) and your avatar. 

The default view is Inbox, but you can also view Sent, Friends, and Ignored. To send a message, click on the New Message button. Type in the Compass username of the recipient and click on the username when it appears to populate the Send to field. Fill in the Message Subject and then write your note in Message Body. When you are ready to send your message, click on Send Message

To read a message, view your inbox and click on the subject line of the message that you want to read. Now you can read the full message, and take actions like Delete or Reply. You can also Friend or Ignore the sender, as well as Report the message if you'd like to alert a moderator.
