New profile posts


I am not sure, with the new updates to the site, how to send a pm. I am not sure if the message I am sending now is a pm. I saw a post in the new forum changes thread that said that when we click our "envelope" we should have a "Private Message" option, but I do not.
My question, at this point, is: If I click on a member's name & go to their profile, is any message I send in that format a "private message?"
@freethinker you need to reach 20 posts before you can send private messages. This is a profile post. Thanks for joining the site and making your first 13 posts.
