private messages


#1

is there some place on the forum that tells us that we have private messages?

I might have missed it, but an email notification would be helpful too.

[/quote]go under my fourms then to the private messages tab.


#3

yes I know where they are, I just thought there might be some flashy javascript pop up message or some sort of icon next to my login name that would tell me that I had a new private message.

or an email letting me know that I had one.


#4

I agree! I’m waiting for someone to check his private messages. May have to ask on the forums because everyone does not check often like I do.

yeah, i think that’s on the to-do list for the codeslaves as well.
definitely need some sort of notification there.


#6

yep, some how I can get an email letting me know that someone replied to this thread but not when I get a private message. I’m pretty sure both features are pretty standard and any kind of forum, just haven’t found it yet on here.


#7

Yup, try the setting @ the bottom of your PM page. Just like in the forums, there’s a box of options at the bottom of the page with a setting for “send e-mail when new topics are posted”, which seems like it would do the trick.


#8

ok I’ll see if that helps…now, I just need to figure out why I’m still getting emails when people post in the particular thread. that’s not annoying or anything.


#9

You mean that you’re getting unrequested e-mails?


#10

yep, I get an email every time someone replies to this thread, only this one though, there’s gotta be a setting some where that I changed. I just don’t know where or what it is.

the email that I get say tell me to do this to turn it off:

To unsubscribe, either:

  1. Visit the above URL and deselect ‘Email me when someone replies…’
  2. Visit your user profile page and uncheck ‘Enable email tracking’

well, I see neither, so I just turned off emails completely for now.

I wish I had known that before [;)]


#12

yeah I no longer get them any more, so its useless now, but if you keep talking so will I. [:)]


#13

Sorry, had to work. You were saying?


#14

Hmmm, I set the filter to e-mail me when I received a pm, but I got a pm…no e-mail. Oh well.


#15

yep, something is still up, because I told it to STOP emailing me, but it still does…ugh!


#16

So, everytime someone posts in this thread, you get an email?


#17

Every single time?


#18

Whoa. That must get annoying.


#19

I’m sure that if it gets annoying enough, you’ll find a way to fix it.

Or change email addresses.
