where do we find what used to be "inbox" and "message board" on our "page"
Your Direct Message Inbox can be found here.
Your inbox with all notifications can be found near the top right of all pages. There is a little white bell in a maroon box with the number of unread notifications.
Message Boards comments will be migrated at a later date. Currently we are working on that. There won't be a message board option though. It will be a little different functionality but you will still be able to How To Use The @mention to essentially send a public message to the person.

Really, REALLY (yes, I'm shouting! lol) important for us to be able to communicate one on one without having to "friend/follow" each other. In order for me to leave you a message for example (that everyone can see, which is sometimes a good idea), I have to what? Find a reply of yours to respond to, or use an @Mark which for some reason doesn't work on my computer in my operation system (Windows 7) on Firefox or ??? what? Or I have to start a discussion/conversation/blog in order to say Hi Mark, glad you had a good day today! And if we have certain things turned off in our reply area....
Although the options for communications have increased, the one option that was very important for the "intimate" kinds of connections that made this place special is gone. Those little personal messages that were left on our message boards told us people were thinking of us and cared about us.
I agree with you Giulia 100 %
Thanks for the feedback Giulia. Other people are able to mention me. Please try typing @m and then @ma and then @mar and then @mark to see if it suggests me at all as you type. It should keep refining the results as you type. Other people have mentioned me so it's not as if it is the known problem where if you have an underscore in your username it won't likely work. Well except for crazymama_Lori for some reason works for me but everyone else with an underscore I have to manually tag them.
Believe me Mark, I have tried it every single possible way. @m gives me a list of names, none of which begin with an m
@m (even after clicking on add 5 more)
places, and content
@ma gives me:
@mar gives me:
And @mark gives me:
Why scha comes up at the top of the @mark may be a clue?
Oddly i tried @ex and I came up on the list but I also came up on the list when I put in @mark and expanded to the next five...
I'll keep playing around with it and see if I can make sense of what is happening.
If all else fails you can do this...
Click the Insert link button then type in /people/Mark in the URL field and Mark in the Text to Display field and it will get to me.
Mark, the only way I can get to you, unless I go find your avatar and copy the link, is to type @ex
Typing @m does not open the dialogue box. Typing @ma, @mar or @mark does not get to you.
We're having it looked into.
Thank you very much
thank goodness that you posted because I'd have no other way of messaging you. I guess you have to follow me in order to message me. Hope this finds you well, young man

We need the message boards, in my opinion, establishing them needs to be a priority.
I can't find the follow icon.
jazzy3 You have to be on the original conversation/blog, not simply viewing it from your inbox. Click on the title of it and it will take you to the actual page. From there, click on the "Action" button (upper right). You will be presented with options. I believe the default is that we automatically are "following" everything that we respond to. If you see a post you want to follow (that you are NOT following) - for instance one that comes into your email inbox from "inbox updates," just click on the title (which will take you to the post), then on the Actions button.
