All UKBF members have access to a Private Message facility. Full members have a larger inbox capacity and are able to send messages to five recipients at once, rather than just one.
Private Messaging should be treated exactly as they are described – private. For this reason, the following rules apply to Private Messaging:
Never send unsolicited Private Messages (PM) – you must always gain the member's permission before sending a PM, unless you have a specific need to contact a member quickly or discreetly the only exception to this rule is when a member has explicitly requested PM replies to a question or tender on the forum if a member has not explicitly requested PM replies to a forum post, you must post on the forum to ask if a PM would be acceptable the contents of any PM, in whole or in part, should never be disclosed publicly, either on this forum or elsewhere
