Note that this is NOT a personal messaging system. Everything you post in the whiteboards is publicly-viewable to all active members regardless of rank. DO NOT post sensitive conversations in the whiteboards. Do this in PMs instead, please. Thank you.
When replying to a whiteboard message, don't reply directly on the whiteboard in your own profile. Instead, reply by posting a new message on the sender's whiteboard. This way the sender will receive a notice that they have a new message, similar to the personal message notifications. If you reply on your own whiteboard, the sender will not receive anything and will be oblivious to a reply, unless they just so happen to remember to check for a reply on your profile. Keep this convenience factor in mind when whiteboard messaging.
Thanks for clearing up the confusion on how to use the whiteboard feature!
