What is a PM and how do I use it?

PM is the common abbreviation for "Private Messaging".

The PM forum service is the Tanki Online's only official means of communication for players outside of the chat lobbies of the game itself. It can only be utilized by forum members, and can be used even if a player is banned from making public forum posts or sending chat messages in the game. There are two types of private messaging: Individual to individual communication, and private group chats.
