    Posted by Stitchinglady on September 18, 2022 at 5:56 pm

    I’m very new to Freesteading and I have a question. In my Messages section I see lots of members listed. I see a “message” that says I have to connect with people before the conversation can continue. Are these people who’ve asked to connect with me? If so, is there a way to connect with multiple people at the same time or do I have to click on each person individually? TIA for all of your help!!!

    Sorry, I can not help. I think this is a new platform so all of us are fairly new. We are all learning as we go along. Maybe someone else is smarter on this than I am. Good luck

    You have to make the connection with the member before you can message them. At the moment, you will have to type in each member’s nickname to send a message to multiple members at the same time. Hopefully, in the future there will be a way to select multiple members or a group of members at one time.

    I have the same questions 😉

    Chat does work if you connect with someone and accept their invitation.

    The system from what I understand is running wide open at this time, this means anything posted on your timeline is seen by everyone else. This has been handy as I have been posting questions I have about the system and have had responses I have asked on my own timeline.

    Welcome aboard! This site is still under construction.

      To message a member, you and that member must have made a connection between yourselves.

      Yeah place is under construction, but glad to meet others that have many of the same values I do. Worth the pain to build a new world.

    Go to Members Search. You can click on the Connect and/or click the person w/plus sign to request a connection. They will get a notification and they can except or decline.

    You can also click on each profile picture to find out more about the person if they have put any info in their profile.
