    Something to let you know when yopu get a PM or Private Topic as they are now called..... I sent a PT to Tully and one to another member a while ago and i havent heard back yet so I am assuming he doesnt know it's there. With the old forums we had the flashing envelope..here we dont have anything and the notificatios procedure is unclear... it seems as though you can only set notifications to topics you have posted...but what do you do if someone has posted one to you? How would you know? Do we have to just check our PTs on a regular basis? That bites....even email will let you know you have mail..... so I am assumiong therre is something I am doing wrong till I find out otherwise..I just cant figure out what it is......

    It's the only thing I miss with the older forum.

    After you send a message, even if there is no return, check to see if it was viewed. You'll know if the recipient has read it or not.

    Agreed. It must be quite more difficult to moderate with the system this software has.

    yea, a PM system would be nice to have again. or at least some sort of notification that you were included in a private topic

    Yep agreed! I do like the way you can click on your name or others and view their recent post and 4 other funtions though, Makes it alot easier to catch back up after going to bed or whatever to find your old thread if it been pushed down.
