    I've gotten several private messages recently, but was not notified about them by viewing the top of the forums page. The only way I found out was to check my e-mail on file, which I do not check on a regular basis (and I may change to a different one, but this still shouldn't work that way!). I think some of the messages I had had for a day or more - I don't think any of them it was a case of they were just sent. What's up with these things. The mods are always telling people if they have differences to settle it using private messaging, but if everyone else is having this problem, what good are they?

    I've never forund the notification on the page to be very reliable, I've always relied on the emil notification. I think its a cookie issue.
    A little zen....... Headed your way.......

    The UBB NEVER had a built-in feature to alert you on the front page, that's why I added something in past versions, but it never worked right, so I removed it totally until I figure out a way that is 100% reliable or the UBB people do it.

    With that said, if you are having discussions with someone via PM, it would seem to me you'd want to check your profile page every once in a while just to see if you had a new PM. And billy, you don't check your e-mail regularly?? Wassup wit dat? [img]smile.gif[/img]

    Anyways hang in there, hopefully there will be a notification thing coming back soon.

    No - I don't check my billy007@juno.com e-mail regularly, which is the one listed with the site. I check my earthlink account all the time!
