Where did the e-mail box go?

Been looking for some way to send an e-mail to someone here on the forum? Been unable to find the "send a message to..." comment box that used to show up when you clicked on someone's profile? Some people have been wondering, and they asked me what happened to that feature.

Quit looking. It isn't there, at least not where it used to be.

The problem is that most people do not use a full screen page size for their browser. Takes up too much room on the screen. Most people cut the page size to the smallest size that will get them to the things that interest them. If a site page is too wide most people quit going to that site. There are so many sites that are just alike they go use another one, especially if they're using a laptop. In recognition of that fact, most sites will scroll text to fit in whatever size window the user has open, and if there's anything they want you to see and use they put it on the left side of the page.

So what's been happening when you went to send someone an e-mail through the Roundup and couldn't find a place to enter your comment? Nothing much. It's just that the programmer has put all that on the right hand bottom of the page that you go to when you click on someone's name, a place most of us never see.

So. Want to send a message to someone? Do what you usually do--click on his or her name. Then, when you get on the next page just scroll your window to the right until you see the comment box.
