  • TIP: Activate PM popup box

    In your user options, select "Pop up a box when you receive a Private Message?" and if anyone leaves you a PM (Private Message) you'll know about it as soon as you enter.

    I did this when first setting up, and it did indeed pop up when I got a PM. Of late, it hasn't been, and I have been noticing at the bottom of the Forums page that I have a new PM. I checked to see if that option was still activated (popup notification) and it was. SO there must be a "trick" to it, like logout and come back or something.

      It's a javascript function, and I think you already mentioned our site makes your javascript misbehave. There's also an 'email on pm' feature, maybe that will work for you.

      Just out of curiosity, try logging in with Netscape and see if that works.

        Indeed, the flyout menu problem is not a problem with Netscape. I'm not sure of the other "problems" such as PM's but FYI the menu difficulty is overcome with the different browser.

          Have you checked your private messages lately?

          I don't know if you're aware of the tracking function of private messages. It tells you if the person you sent it to has read it yet.

          Anyway, using this, I'm amazed at the number of people that still haven't read private messages I sent them months ago.

          Check and see if...

          Hi Folks,

          It's time we all roll up our sleeves to give blood. We *have* to come together at a time such as this. Thanks.

          I had a private message, but it wasn't a new message (it had been there before but I hadn't noticed it, apparently) and it took me forever to find how to read it! There was no link to the user cp on the front page, and so I had to go into a thread, click on "send a private message" and then...

          A well-meaning friend has been telling me (repeatedly)(over and over)(and over again) that this website (not counting forums) needs a serious facelift. He insists that the current design will hold back progress.
