Many people may not know this, but there is a method of sending private messages to users of this forum.

At the top of each post, you will find a link that looks like this: http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/pmimages/pm.gif .
Clicking on this will let you send a private message within this forum to the user. This will not send e-mail to the user, nor will it reveal the user's email address.

Now, receiving your private messages is a little trickier. Most people, including myself, simply bookmark the list of topics. If you do this, you'll never be alerted to any private messages you might have (although I've been told you should be, I've never seen the alert). But if you bookmark the forum in this manner, you will have a much better chance of getting your private messages:

1) Go to the list of message topics.
2) Click the link that says "Add To Favorites"
3) When it refreshes to a list of all the topics, click the link that says "Show Only My Favorites". You should now see a page that includes the Replay forum, your Private Messages, and a "Currently Browsing the Boards link.
4) Bookmark this page as your main entrance.

It's one extra click into the forum, but if you think that people might try to send messages to you, it will help you a great deal.
