I am a new bee and trying to figure things out. I have figured out some things but not all. I know that PM means private messages but Ive had people tell me they have sent me a PM and I have nothing. I see it on the top right corner and its says “new messages” right? How else can I find them? Is there a way of alerting you or knowing that someone has responded to a post? What else can you tell me that can help me out here? Thank you!

You can reach your inbox by clicking on the link in the upper right corner that says new messages. That is where all private messages will be.
There isn’t a way to know that you received a reply to your post other than checking the thread again.
Here is a link of abbreviations to help you out. Feel free to ask questions if you have them!

The abbreviations were the most confusing thing for me, so once you brush up on those, a lot more will make sense.
Just a general etiquette thing, if your posts are really long or pic-heavy, it’s nice to note that in the title of the thread. That way, if a Bee has an ancient slow computer or doesn’t have the time to read an uber-long post, she won’t click on it.
Welcome to the Bee! 🙂
