A lack of Notice...

Post  Cybele on Sat Nov 15, 2008 9:37 pm

Just a note. I really didn't know where to put this...
This forum's PM system is found to be a little lacking. It doesn't really give you any notice that you've received mail. I just found a PM from chenhsi from Wednesday when I sent something to Lord Gurgi today. When LG had responded to my post in-thread, which was about the same thing as what I had PMed him about, I realized he hadn't opened the PM I sent him yet, and I sent it beforehand. Now, I realize it could just be that pop-up blocker is catching all notifications, but normally, on MS, the inbox would read "You have 1 unread message." whereas this doesn't ever change from the basic PM button.
Is there anyway to deal with this, or not? It's not that big of a deal, but it does kind of hamper the Private Messaging function.

Yes. The E-mail thing about getting PM's is nice, but I don't check my E-mail often.

We need something that shows us we have a PM.

(speaking of which, Mokina I just sent you a PM!)

I noticed this as well and wonder if there is anything that can be done about it. Also... I find the map to be incrediablely creepy. Is there any way to remove yourself from it?

This is a problem, but it seems built into the forum style, so I don't know if there is a solution, as such.

Map? Creepy? Remove myself from it?
Talk sense, boy!

Go to the Main index and click "Who is Online?". You will be redirected to a map showing you an approximate location of various members who are online.

Ahh... I see Penta has decided to follow my lead and become hidden. Good job, mate. You know, if everyone did that, we wouldn;t have to worry about the map.

I was searching for a way to remove myself without becoming hidden but failed...

I became hidden before Penta, as soon as I found out about the map.

Also, I went to my profile - preferences and set it so that I would get the pop-up when I recieve PMs

Yargh, but some of us utilize pop-up blockers, for the sake of spam...

I believe the "PM" icon changes to "New PM", but the colors make it hard to see, and it isn't very visible.

Yeah, it does. I noticed when I logged on today. I see nothing wrong with the current system.

The map can be disabled by selecting "Hide your online status" in your preferences.

I don't live in Winnipeg.

I saw one over my city, and thought that's the one you were talking about
