In order to send a private message, you will need to click on the username of the person you wish to send a message to. Once you have clicked on the person's username, their profile box will come up on the screen and you will need to select the link: "Start a Conversation." This will open a new screen where you may enter the conversation title and message. Once you have composed your message, simply hit the button beneath the text box that says "Start a Conversation." Additionally, in order to check your messages, you will notice the link in the upper right corner next to your username which says "inbox." If you have any new messages upon logging into R2R, you will see the number of new messages indicated over the inbox (1 new message is available in this example). If you have any additional questions, don't hesitate to contact one of the REEF2REEF staff or email email@example.com.
