How do you send a dm on this forum?
It looks like this forum is made from Discourse and there does not seem to be a dm button.

Sending a DM to a user via a post no longer populates title and topic link - support - Discourse Meta

  1. Go to a topic
  2. Scroll down through replies and find someone you need to DM.
  3. Click on their username. Soft box pops up and click “Message”

Hey, welcome!

Why do you want this functionality? I think it’s probably intentionally not enabled, but if you share your use case, maybe we can get the core team to enable it.

This should be enabled. It may be a restriction based on user level.

Yeah, @WroundBrown - its restricted since you are a new user and have trust level 0.

From Understanding Discourse Trust Levels

Users at trust level 0 cannot

  • Send personal messages to other users
  • “Reply as new topic” via Link button (UI removed)
  • Flag posts
  • Post more than 1 image
  • Post any attachments
  • Post more than 2 hyperlinks in a post
  • Have actual links in the ‘about me’ field of their profile (will be silently and temporarily converted to plain text)
  • Mention more than 2 users in a post
  • Post more than 3 topics
  • Post more than 10 replies
  • Edit their own posts after more than 24 hours

Trust Level 1 – Basic

At Discourse, we believe reading is the most fundamental and healthy action in any community. If a new user is willing to spend a little time reading, they will quickly be promoted to the first trust level.

Get to trust level 1 by…

  • Entering at least 5 topics
  • Reading at least 30 posts
  • Spend a total of 10 minutes reading posts
