prostheticknowledge asked: You can ask them as a reply (if they have it enabled). Its easier if you are following them, as when you hover over the 'i' for imformation icon over their avatar on your dashboard, you should see if they have 'ask' enabled.

Here’s what I just sent to prostheticknowledge via private “ask” message, but I thought I’d now publish it for all to see since it seems to be a general concern:

OK, so hopefully this is what you meant — instead of clicking on “answer” within the person’s question, go to the person’s own tumblr page and respond via the “ask” feature? That/this definitely works… but doesn’t it seem a bit more involved than it needs to be? It seems like there should be an option to publicly or privately reply within the message itself, don’t you think? I’ve been on Tumblr for over a year but only recently started receiving messages and noticing this…

Tumblr Question

Is there a way to respond to messages received but NOT have them displayed publicly for all to see (annoyingly, I’m sure) on their dashboard?

Thanks in advance. I’ll look forward to your public/dashboard responses. :)
