You can only send private messages once your task has been assigned. This allows you to exchange contact details with the other member and arrange finer details about the task.
All members can still ask questions and respond in the public comments section before the task has been assigned.
Please do not share any private information in any public areas of the site including any comments or attachments. This is for the purpose of your safety and privacy and to prevent spam.
When your task is assigned and you'd like to send a private message, you can do so with the following steps:
- Go to the task.
- Select the green Private message button
- Write your message and click Send
You can find your private message conversations in threads under the Messages tab. This is where you can also send more messages.
