    I seem to recall a simple icon/link under a user's avatar that allowed me to contact someone directly via BF or email, but I cannot seem to find it anymore... Help?

    You need to have a paid membership to have conversations.

    Irritatingly there doesn't seem to be an option to do this from a user's profile, it only seems to work from a post they have made.

    There is, you just got to dig a little.

    When in someone's profile, click the Information tab. Under the Interact section you'll see "Conversation:" with a link to send message and start a convo.

    Does one have to pay to to receive the "Conversation:" link under the Interact section? That is what I garner from the above.

    It's all right for someone to respond, as I still accept emails or conversations.

    @abcdef registered members cannot send or receive messages/conversations (except from admins and mods). There is the option of making posts to somebody's profile; but some people disable or restrict that feature.

    @madcap_magician aside from the method pointed out above, you can also send messages by entering your conversation list, and clicking on start a new conversation
