  • Maintaining Private Message Folders

    Since Art Tag requires sending private messages (PMs) back and forth it is VERY important that you maintain your RetouchPro messages folders, otherwise you may be left out of a game since you were unreachable due to a full mailbox.

    Make sure that you check your personal messages on the RetouchPro site and delete the files after you read them. If you have information you want to keep, copy it to Note Pad or Word or some other program and keep a copy on your computer. This way you can make sure that you don’t miss out on messages due to a full mailbox.

    You can view your message folders by clicking on “User CP” on the side navigation bar under the FORUM section. Make sure to view your private messages and empty out the folders once you have read them. Depending on what options you have selected you may have numerous messages in your INBOX, SENT ITEMS, and MESSAGE TRACKING folders.

    It's a message I posted a long time back but it really deserves to be reposted periodically because people tend to forget about having limits to the amount stored in their Private Messages folders and the newbies don't realize it. Well said T

      There ARE advantages to not being popular. I don't have any messages clogging up MY folder, so I get to play Art Tag all the time! FINALLY, a benefit of not being picked until last for the sandlot team...

        Private Message limitations
        by DJ Dubovsky
        This is just something I found out the hard way recently. My private message boxes met their memory limit (I never knew there was a limit) and when a new message came in it was mentioned in an e-mail notice but rejected. I deleted my message boxes but never got the message sent that time. It's not...

        Can't delete a message
        by Blacknight
        I can't seem to delete a message if I decide not to send it. The option is there, but it is unavailable to me. I am using Explorer 5 on my MAC. Also smilies are supposed to be selected, but I have yet to figure out how to use them in a message. Initially (and being a "new user" I am qualified...

        user cp
        by OpalCat
        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...

        Have you checked your private messages lately?
        by Doug Nelson
        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...

        What is Art Tag?
        by T Paul
        This is a fun, fast paced project area. Unlike other challenges/projects on this site, the Art Tag projects do have a time limit. So don’t work on them too long as others are eagerly waiting for their turn! These are short-term projects with quick-turn-arounds and immediate results and that's half...
