Help: Send a Message  

[Help Contents]

You can use the Send Message dialog box to send a private message to a player. You get to it by choosing Messages | Send a Message from the menu, or by using the "Send a message" link at the top of each player's profile (in which case, their name will be filled in automatically in the "To" field).

The dialog box looks something like this (the colors will vary based on your color theme); underneath the image we'll walk through the steps:

Here's how to send someone a message:

  1. The To field: Choose the person you want to invite to a game. You can either type their name in the box, or choose a player from your Buddy List. If you don't know a player's exact username and they're not on your Buddy List yet, you can use the link underneath the "To" field to go to the Player Directory and find the player you want to send a message to; from their profile page, use the "Send a message" link which comes back here).
  2. The Subject field: Type in a subject for your message.
  3. The Message field: Type in your message!
  4. The Use MonkeyTags field: If you don't want to use MonkeyTags in your message, you can uncheck this box; normally, it's fine to leave it checked even if you don't intentionally use MonkeyTags. (For more on MonkeyTags, see the MonkeyTags Help).
Once you're done, just click Send Message to send your message!
