You can send private messages to any other user of our site. To do this you just click on the envelope icon () next to their user name. You can also use the 'send message' button from the user's public page.
In either case, you get a form that lets you send a message to the selected user, who will receive it in his email address.
You must enter the topic of your message in 'Subject', and the text of the message in 'Message'.
If you check the 'send me a copy' option a copy of the message will be sent to your e-mail address (the one you provided when you registered, and which you can see and change from 'your profile').
If you are a Premium user, you will also have here the option to end the conversation. If you check it, the conversation will be hidden after sending the message. This is convenient when you don't expect a reply from the other user and you don't want the conversation to appear in your list (in the section 'Your Messages').
From this form you can also access other pages that may help you when contacting with a user:
- If you want to see the public page of the user you only need to click on their user name. In the public page you have access to the lists of miniatures this user has and wants, and to the list of references for this user, together with other information and utilities related to that user.
- If you have already contacted this user previously, you can go directly to the list of messages exchanged with him or her by using the link "See previous messages from this user >>".
- If you have by any chance a bad experience trading with this user, and you feel you may have been cheated by him, you can (and should) open a Bad Trader Report against him by following the link "Report as Bad Trader>>".
- If you wish to check which miniatures this user has that you want, and which miniatures you have that the user wants, before offering a trade, you can click on the link at the bottom of the page that reads 'Display miniature matches with this user'.
