Can't answer for Ian, and don't know the rest of the instructions, but if you look at the bottom of the dark blue field at the top of the page, you will see your avatar and login name (right of center), right beside "inbox" and "alerts." If you click on your login name there, it offers some "settings" for you to fiddle with.
That's it, Jeff. The Inbox with the little envelope symbol is where private conversations can be viewed and referenced later. In your settings, you can choose to see alerts when you have a new message from a member, it will appear as a little red flag next to the inbox so you know at a glance that someone is contacting you.
