Same menu as to start a new poll or a new topic


Select "Private Topic"

Don't know why they use this silly awkward system, but that's what we have

Fistly add the person you want to PM to your contact list (left click on his name and pick a choice). Then start a new Private Topic and Invite him to it (there's a wizard for that, sort of).

That's how I do it and it works so far...But I still have problems ocassionaly with the jawa menu. Sometimes it works and sometimes does not (I use Opera browser, may be a culprit).

I have only used the "PM" twice, but now I cannot delete them. It tells me you have to do this within 60 Min.? or sometime like that. Is there a way to clean out the old PMs?

I don't understand why they "gave us" this silly system instead of the "normal" PM system everybody's used to http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/crazy.gif

Coz it's what comes standard with Infopop's UBB.x forum software and Ubi can't see the point in paying for a custom alternative when they have one that works?
