Default "Compose Message" button on the Private Messages home page?

Hey Guys,
Would it be possible to get a 'compose message' button on the private message page? It would be a lot easier if we didn't have to go through the search to find a memeber's post before we could PM. If we could just click on "Private Messages" in the menu bar above, then click "Compose," It would take out a few steps.

Thanks,
B

I usually just left click on the user's name, and a little drop down opens up and amongst the choices , after "view public profile" is "Send Private Message."

If I'm on the member's public profile, there is a little "PM" on the right next to "add Friend" & "Block"

What is easier than doing those? Or am I missing something?

I could go for the compose message option, too. Good for sending out PMs to multiple people and you don't have to go and find a post by who you want to talk to.

Try and find my 3 recipients for the 09-09-09 and then ask that again

Your way:
Click "search" in the menu bar.
Click "Advance Search"
Click in the "Search by user name" box
Type "revvy"
Hit enter.
Find your name on the page of search results (7th line down, thread starter)
Click on your name
Click on "PM" in upper right.

With the new fangled button:
Click "Private Messages in menu bar
Click "Compose"
Type "revvy"

There's 5 less steps with the button. It's like using dishsoap, rinse, bleach, wait for dry to sanitize a bottle instead of Starsan...

What I'm really saying is I'm just lazy!
