We must protect the privacy of our members and as such, we cannot share their contact information with anyone. However, we do provide an in-site messaging system available to registered members. If you are not already signed up, please join Weather Underground]. We offer a free membership, as well as one with extended privileges, including ad-free viewing, for only $10.00 a year.

There are several ways you can send a message to another user. Our messaging system is based on the handle name chosen during the sign up process. (What is a handle?)

Using your web mailbox

Weather Underground provides a web based messaging system Sign-in to the website, if you have not already.

When you have received a new message, the Mail Box will say "You've Got Mail" on the left side of any WUnderground page.

Sending messages from WunderPhotos

  • On the single image page, which shows the photo at its full size, scroll down to the "About <handle name>" box
    • This box often contains a photo and the text profile of the photographer
  • Look for a message link with a mailbox that says "Write a Message to <handle name>"
    • This is the mailbox icon: blue_envelope.gif
  • Click the mailbox link to create a new message to the photographer with a thumbnail of the selected image attached

You can also change the handle name to share the attached image with a friend who has a Weather Underground account. Send the message to WunderPhotoAdmin if you have a recommendation, kudos or questions.

Sending messages from WunderBlogs

Messaging from WunderBlogs is very similar to WunderPhotos. When you are viewing any member's blog, look for a link on the right side of the page that reads "Send Message". This link appears just below the user's Recent Photos.
