    So for reference, now I have a Signature option. Woohoo! Either the answer is 8 or the random number gods have smiled upon me!

    We intend to do something for that, however we have to take care of other items first.

    @boaterva you should be able to upload the avatar by now. Are you still not able to?

    Yep, as I said, the magic number for me was 8. Eight posts, and the Avatar and Signature options appeared. If that's the magic number for everyone, a bit of doc in a sticky post somewhere would probably be appreciated by other new members. :)

    There's an inbox icon on the top right, next to the bell icon, hover over that and click "Start a New Conversation". Conversations serve more or less a similar purpose to PMs.

    Also, note that some users restrict who can start a conversation with them. I've run into this in the past.

    But are they private?
    No one else can se them?
    So really then, there is no such thing as PM in this forum, only conversations?

    They are private to the members involved in the conversation but they can still be seen by the admins of the site. I do not think that is out of the ordinary for forum software, though.

    If you have something truly private to exchange, it might be best to exchange phone numbers in a conversation or, less securely, email addresses.

    Just a note that even after becoming a supporting member (worth every dollar!) the photo and signature still seem to remain grayed out.

    8 posts did it for me as well! It also unlocked Edit and Delete post features, and the ability to like/dislike other user's posts :)

    Lol, I have been struggling to figure this out for a week. I guess I better get to posting. Thanks for asking OP, and thanks to the folks who figured it out and took the time to post their results.
