Looking to private message somone on the forums, I clicked their name which brought me to their profile. There was no text which mentions private messaging, so I started to hunt. After a bit of time, I figured out I need to click his name AGAIN, and that sends me to a message creation page.

Now this seems very unintuitive...comming from a tech savvy computer guy who designs websites. I think private message accessibility would increase if it actually mentioned how to private message someone somewhere on the page!

edit:
err turns out on their POST, it does offer a link called "sticky mail" which I think is an unintuitive name... Once in the profile though, it woudl still be nice if it was a little more clear.

Thanks for the feedback. I'm not sure I've seen that complaint before! Glad you figured it out.

How intuitive is that envelope next to "Sticky Mail". :)

BTW, when I click on the "user profile", then click on the user's name, the local PM opens up. Does it work that way for you?
