I find PMs really cumbersome.
I agree but unfortunately there are some technical issues that would make that quite difficult. I'm not saying it's impossible but not something we can afford to implement at this time. One of the primary issues is that the software running this site, vBulletin, is going no where. They were acquired by a company who mismanaged them and it's essentially a dead product. There is a new leader in the forum software spaced called XenForo and everything has been thought through to refine forum software making almost everything easier. For example, you should be able to attach images to PMs, have group PMs without having to retype everyone's username each time, etc. It's called XenForo and our plan is to switch to that platform within the next couple of years. When that happens, then we can asses requests like this because developing that would be expensive, especially for a platform we are going to switch away from soon.

Current is now called Timeline. Subscribed is now called Subscribed and there is a new option called Participated if you want to find a discussion you have posted to which you are not subscribed to. You can see these links from the left slide out navigation section (see attachment below).
I'm seeing Avatars on my iPhone. Are you using the latest version? Are you on Android or iOS?
