Just wondering why some people don’t have the “send message” button by their name. Is it a privacy setting they have?

jennlea said

Good question.

Angrboda said

Because you can only send messages to people you are following AND who are also following you. The people without the button next to their name doesn’t fit into that category.

Cofftea said

Gotcha!

jennlea said

@angrbora thanks for clearing that up. Makes sense now :)

Angrboda said

I have realised that I have misinformed you a little. It’s people who are following you that you can contact, regardless of whether or not you’re also following them. I initially thought it had to be mutual following.

Hey PeteG, be careful! What are you going to be doing there? I assume some aid,of course, but didn’t know if you knew the specifics. Our thoughts will be with you!

rabbysmom said

I suppose I could have messaged you instead of replying in this thread! oops!

Humanitarian relief and direct assistance i.e., food, clothing, distribution and med assistance. We are leaving in a couple of hours.

PeteG said

If the teabox arrives at my house the next person please be patient…sorry for the hold up…maybe Angrboda can have the scheduled changed slightly?
Angrboda…private msg me please.

Cofftea said

I personally don’t see the need to reschedule. Maybe you could bring them some tea:)

OK, I think I need a for-dummies tutorial. I’d like to reply privately to a comment someone posted; I am following that person, but not vice versa at this time. When I go to to my inbox to send the message, I have a drop-down menu of recipients (names of the people I’m following, I thought…) but said recipient isn’t there. Is there someplace I can just type in the user name?

Humbly and apologetically,
G

At this time, you are only able to send personal messages to people who are currently following you; as far as I know, this will remain unchanged, in order to protect the recipients from spam, etcetera.

Cofftea said

I wish that would change. A block list would solve that.

gmathis said

Well, it does make sense to prevent unwanted messages. Thanks.

Angrboda said

You can reply to a message sent to you by a person who isn’t following you, but you can’t send them a NEW message. If you click on the message they sent to you, there is a reply box underneath it.
