    Welcome to the community @feeky1973 :) There's no need to apologise, don't worry. It's good that you've been able to get stuck straight into discussions on the community. 

    You need 25 points in order to be able to send a private message. You can see how many points you have by visiting your profile page. You currently have 15 points. You can gain points through thing like posting, commenting, and having people react to your posts and comments. I hope that makes sense?

    At the top of your screen you will see an envelope, click on that and it will bring up your inbox for messages. Click on "new message" on the right hand side and then put the members username at the top. Type you message in the large box and click "post message". You have then sent a private message, which no one else can see.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    I’ll rephrase that to “you can only edit” sorry was distracted by an audience with Adele on TV. ?

    I didn't, but saw snippets from her show. I will definitely watch the full programme this week though, as I think she's great and I really enjoy her music!
