Trouble with Private Messages

Postby DaveA » Mon Jan 03, 2011 2:56 am

I have a private message composed and sitting in my outbox for Jack, but couldn't tell for sure if it 'shipped'. I have nothing in the 'sent messages' folder, so I assume the PM is just sitting in the outbox waiting for me to press some magic button somewhere.

What next?

I'll take a look for it, but be advised: I seldom check the "private messages" here in the forums. The best way to reach me -- and Jeb&Dave -- is either the public postings in these forums, or via email.

Email is podcast@uncontrolledairspace.com

Sorry for the confusion.

PS. Anyone know how to disable the private message function of these forums so there's no confusion?

If you mean to disable it for the whole forum, I hope you won't. I've been contacted by other listeners several times through UCAP Forum PMs. I have my User Preferences set to notify me (via email) so I don't miss them.

Hmmmm. Very good point. Hadn't thought of that.

I won't disable all private messaging. But I'm still on the lookout for a way to disable/derail/redirect the ones addressed to ME.

I just went searching because I KNEW such a function existed... you need to do the following Jack:

User Control Panel>Board Preferences>Edit Global Settings>Allow Users to Send You Private Messages (the third option in the list)... set to 'No', click submit and relax with another Leinie! :D
