    I cannot find a privacy feature or member blocker feature nor wish to use one within the Private Message System.
    But today it was brought to my attention that a member was unable to invite me to a P.M. and was receiving an ERROR MESSAGE.
    I don't know how many people have tried to contact me via P.M. in the past and could not successfully invite me to as such. Although I vaguely remember, a couple of similar occurrences in the not too distant past, a couple members mentioned this but I dismissed it and started the conversation personally.
    Today I asked a member to grab a screen shot and send it to me. I asked permission to post it here and it was granted.

    How do I UNBLOCK members from trying to contact me VIA P.M. system?:caf
    Inquiring minds, want to know.. Thank you in advance.

    Look here:

    Scroll down and double check this section:

    If that box is NOT checked I think it does not allow anyone to start a convo with you.
    Make sure it IS checked and select one of the drop down options.

    Private message system = CONVERSATION
    The above is the only option I can find that has to do with conversations.
    Let me know if your box was originally checked or not please.
