How do I message another User on forums?
I’m new so i don’t know much about this website.

You can go here:

https://discuss.codecademy.com/u/java2242275464/messages

and then press the button that says: new message

for other users reading this, replace java2242275464 with your username. You can also click your profile image in the top right corner and double click the envelope icon.

Might be trust level restricted:

User Trust Levels

although its not mentioned in the topic. You are currently add trust level 0 (New user), maybe PM/DM is disabled for that level, to prevent people from sending a lot of spam.

It is trust level related:

The PM feature should be available once you reach TL1, which is not too difficult. :slight_smile:
