private messages

2 questions:

when someone becomes a friend, it seems posts are seen by everyone looking at one's profile page? so how private is that?

last week i was asking about adding a signature to my profile, and it was suggested that i send a PM to one of the administrators. how do i do that?

thank you, sambacat

At the top of the page you will see your username and then next to it a link to "Inbox". Click on the inbox and then in there you can send a new PM message. One alternative is to go to the Admin or Mod's page and click the "Send Message" link.

As for you privacy question, I just want to understand, are you worried that anyone can pull up a list of your posts? That is something that has been in the feature list for a very long time. It kind of goes a long with "if you don't want it seen, don't post it.". The posts here are for everyone to learn from, not for only one person to see.

If I didn't answer your question, please let me know.

As I understand it, she's not talking about posts but visitor messages. Indeed, these are not private, but they're different from PMs. So send a PM to someone, follow the instructions Jeff gave you or go to the persons profile, click on the ">>" Symbol and choose "Contact Info". There you can "Send a private message to <username>".
