If using KES, check General > Add mail iconto append an icon/label next to a username to directly message them. (If on the same intance as you)

Vegan_Joe, I am using sync, and the option to message you is there once I go to your user page.

yeah morgunkorn explained it and I was just having some mental blindness or something. im smacking my head at how its location is right where you would think it would be. don't know how I missed it.

When you click on a user name (at least in the web version), you land on that user’s profile and there’s a button “Send message” to write privately.

Please note however that the admins of the instances will have access to theses messages, they are not encrypted.

yup one of those mental blindness things I think. Even after you said I could not find it and then did a control f and low and behold its like right there. don't know how I did not see it. even has a mail icon.

Do note that you can't currently message users on other instances from kbin. The button will still be there, but it will bring you back to the homepage. I believe Ernest said something about it being "unimplemented," so I'm assuming cross-instance messaging will happen someday, but is probably not a high priority at the moment.

thanks. that is good to know. its a rare thing but once in awhile I want to message someone.
