Reminder to Everyone

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Since we've had an influx of new members in the past few months, I just wanted to remind everyone about out Private Messaging System. It is an internal message system to contact others on the site off the board, without having to use or give out email addresses. It is also how Moderators communicate with members when necessary, and how members can report posts and concerns to Moderators.

You can access your Private Messages in a couple of ways. You can click the User CP button at the top of any page, and any new Private Messages will be shown there. While you are in your User CP, click on Edit Options and you can choose to have an email sent to you whenever you get a Private Message.

Also, if you scroll down to the bottom of the main Forums page, right under Current Users is also access to your Private Messages. There it will tell you at a glance if you have any New Messages since you last signed on, and any Unread Messages.

One more thing....while there is no limit on how lengthy your PMs can be, there is a limited amount of PMs that you can keep which is 70. That includes sent and received messages, so be sure to clean these out every so often. Also, check you Message Tracking as keeping track of read messages can gum up your limit as well.

Thanks everyone!

I hope this isn't too dumb a question, but here goes. Everytime I post something and then someone replies I get an email. Even if I didn't start the thread. How do I stop getting those? I like getting the emails on threads that I start when it's something important, like if I ask a question in the health section, but others I can just see when I visit the site.

On the screen where you type, just unclick the box that says email notification. Its right under the box where you type your message.

You'll also need to go to the User CP and individually unsubscribe from the threads for which you are currently getting emails, or you will continue to hear from those threads. Then you can individually subscribe to any thread you feel is important to you in the thread itself.

You can also disable the email notification by going to User CP and Edit Options. Click 'no' under Use 'Email Notification' by default?'.

Then unsubscribe from individual threads as I described above.
