  • go to the respective user page by clicking on a blue coloured link.

2. If you receive a message from one of the other participants, send a reply by clicking on their user name which is displayed in the automatic signature below the message. Try and comment on something positive you have seen on their user page, and if you have any ideas on how to improve the user page offer some friendly advice.
