The Stitch Community pages cover all the pages under the Community item in the top menu, and include:
- Activities & Events
- Discussion Forums
If you are a Stitch Community member, you are able to send a direct message to any other member you see in the community, wherever you see their profile.
Any time you see a member profile picture, you can click on it to open that member's profile. In the comments for a Stitch Activity, for example, just click on the member's profile picture as shown in the image below:
This will open that member's profile. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click the Send a message button.
This will open the Send a message dialog box. Type in your message and press Send:
Accepting and Replying to a Direct Message
The first time someone sends you a message on Stitch, you will be sent an email notifying you that they have messaged you.
Your Inbox will show the new message:
If you open the message request, you'll see a bit more information about the person who messaged you, along with a number of options for how you would like to respond:
You can choose to do one of the following on the direct message page:
- Choose View Profile to see their full Stitch Profile
- Choose Archive to remove this member's conversation from your Inbox. Note that they will be able to send you messages in the future.
- Choose Block if you do not wish to be contacted by this member ever again. They will no longer be able to send you messages on Stitch.
- Finally, if you'd like to respond to them (and we hope you do, it's basic politeness!) then just type them a new message and choose Send Message
