The message request feature is designed to ensure that members possess autonomy to choose who they wish to engage with. When a member wants to contact another member, the member would have to send a message request to the other member, awaiting for approval before the individual can continue sending a message. Members receiving the request can joyfully accept or respectfully decline. We hope this feature will decrease any unwanted messages and save our members their valuable time!
In order to receive the feature you may have to clean out your cache that can be found in the history tab at the top right of Google Chrome. When websites go through a major update, sometimes Google remembers the old code and nothing ends up rendering. Clear out the cache in their history and it will render just fine.
