How do I direct message people?

I was wondering how to direct message someone?

There’s someone in this community I wanted to have a chat with and I can’t figure out how to direct message.

I don’t see the message icon…This is what I see

That’s simply because he might have turned off his DM’s

it is a personal choice for anyone, if the user feels like he/she is receiving too many DM’s or DM’s are just wasting his/her time , so they have an option to turn them off in the forum and can even allow some particular users only to DM him/her.

I hope this clears your doubt :slightly_smiling_face:

You need the basic badge.
(I thought it was the member badge before but nah it’s this one)

I think you get it after either a certain number of reading hours, likes or completing the DiscoBot stuff.
This is reasonable because otherwise, there’d be a lot of spam DMs. If you don’t want to jump through the hoops to get the badge, maybe find the person’s email or something instead.

BrutalBirdie has the button for me, so I don’t think that’s the case.


Yepp, I noticed just after you said :sweat_smile:
so in both cases DMs are closed :astonished:


You’re still a new user (first day! welcome) so TL0. See here “Can send Personal Messages”:
