Conversations are the equivalent of Private Messages in the old vBulletin forum. Here is one way to start a new conversation.

Click on the envelope (Conversations symbol) as shown in the figure below.

Thanks for the information on how to start a conversation Bill. By the way, looked through your photo gallery and Daisy looks just like our Scooter we had for 17 years. She passed couple years ago.
