Direct Messaging For UPROXX Commenters Is Here!

A few weeks ago, when we rolled out our new and improved commenting system across the UPROXX network, we mentioned that the ability for commenters to direct message each other directly was on the horizon. Well, it’s finally here.

How does it work? It’s pretty simple, really. Say you see someone in the comments that you’d like to send a message to. Click on the “profile” link beneath their avatar and at the top right of the window that opens up is a “send message” button. Click that and type your message, and then when the person you’re messaging responds, you’ll get an email at the address you registered with notifying you of the message. You can then go to your profile and respond to the message. Simple enough for you?

We look forward to hearing stories about how installing this feature led to UPROXX commenters hooking up with each other.
