PM's

Unread postAuthor: jrrdw » Tue Dec 02, 2008 7:19 pm

I don't think I'm getting mine. Would someone be so kind as to send me a PM and post that you did/will that way I don't get tons of PM's for this reason. Thanks for any help.

If someone sends you a PM, then withdraws the PM before you read it, that will happen.

I've already admitted to being the cause of this particular case of the problem. I was being too clever for my own good.

I regularly fire off PMs to more than one mod at the same time if there's a problem for the sake of expediency - actually scratch that, the use of the word expediency for haste or speed is apparently obsolete. Funny, it's about the only meaning of the ones listed in the dictionary that I use the word for...

Anyway... usually to later get met with a "That link is Dead" PM from the other mod(s), so I thought I could avoid this and save jrrdw some time by withdrawing the PM - forgetting about e-mail notification.

Next time, editing the PM would be more appropriate.

I think my only tech issue is that it would be nice to send a PM to multiple members at the same time...ie. mods, without having to copy and paste the message and start a whole new PM session for each member.

I know I know, PM means "private" message.

If it only goes to the members to who you've addressed, it's still private. If you post in the threads, it's public.

Oh I know how it works, it's just that you can address the message to only one member in the PM. Sometimes would be nice to address the message to more than one member.
