When a Sololearner that I haven't talked to sends me a private message, why do I only see the Accept/Decline buttons for some?

What are the rules that govern the ability to accept/decline a message from someone you haven't communicated with before? Do I only see this feature if a non-follower of mine sends me a message for the first time? Do I not see the buttons if the person sending me a message is a follower?

YouÔÇÖre lucky to have private message. iPhone app doesnÔÇÖt have this. ­čśą

Looks like for IPhone users the best way of achieving near 1-1 communication is via comments in private codes still.

Sonic I have not had a situation where I did not have the option to accept / decline except when I am invited to groups. I would be surprised if everyone who has ever messaged me followed me first (since I don't think it would be the opposite where everyone who ever messaged me had messaged me before they followed me), so if it turns out that there is a difference based on this condition and it's reproducible (expected behavior for everyone?) maybe the people I have neither accepted nor declined will use this knowledge to require my attention. ­čśů

Sonic ÔÇóIf a person is the one whom you dont follow messages you , ÔÇóYou get the option of accept / decline . ÔÇóWhen a person messages you first time , whom you follow . ÔÇóThen you won't get that option of accept / decline ...

Heather Yes. Click on a profile, click on follow --> the follow button changes to "message" --> click on it. Or click on a profile, click the three dots in the upper right corner --> click on message

I only saw this button twice. The first time someone followed me and wrote me a message. I accepted, but had to follow him first to answer. The second time I was followed by one, again I was not a follower of him. Since the one wanted to have a code written, I refused. So I think, the button appears only if a follower of you, writes you a message, but you do not follow him.

Sonic If you click on a profile, then the three dots --> follow, message... I never tried it but I think it is possible to write a message without following.

That's a possibility Denise Ro├čberg . Can non followers also send you private messages? I think they still can.

Heather you must be using an Apple device. IOS apparently still does not have this feature as Candyopoly said.

Heather Strange. Do you use the app or the website? And what happens if you click the three dots and then message?
