XenForo has "conversations" instead of private messaging. These conversations are still private, but they are more versatile, primarily because others can be invited to join and it appears like a thread rather than a bunch of nested quotes.

Anyway, hover your mouse cursor over the user's avatar or username, and the popup hovercard will contain a "Start conversation" button. You can also find this button on a user's profile too. :)

(and on your mobile device, just tap the user name and then Start Conversation)

Denis, of all people why would you ask this? Do you really think members want to PM with you?
