you can turn on a pop up for messages in your cp, is that what you mean?
#2
yes but thats if you turn it on (which i didnt know) but alot of new users etc dont know this,,

it would be great if you didnt have to add this as an option but had the flasher permanent so you will always know if you have new mail


EDIT: just to add thats a third time the user has been on and they still havent replied to my Pm's
#3
thats true,maybe there should be a welcome email sent to new users explaing bits like this?

or have it on by default with the option to disable it
#4
yeh default would be better but then why disable it ? lol

it should just be on all the time so you are aware you have mail :thumbsup:

I turned on the notify of pm's as default for new members a few weeks ago. I didn't notice it was turned off but one of the mods mentioned it. So new users since then will have it on by default.
#6
How do you switch it on?
#7
This is what happens on another site i use,

the whole background goes yellow from light blue and the letter symbol flashes on and off

I agree that something should be done for new PM's. I have the pop up enabled but sometimes it doesn't always do it, say if you are refreshing the page or something. It can get missed!
#9
You can also set it to notify you by e-mail when you receive a PM
#10
i like the idea of above, not so much with the yellow background but the little envelope thing flashing would look cool and more noticeable.

I have that Pm popper up and sent a message to myself and nothing happened

thats a good tip :) what i think the problem here for the op is, the recipient is not replying so he doesnt know if its been accepted, not sure what can be done for hm tho :thinking:
#12
oh i know you can put in a request for a like receipt for when the reciever gets the message

but all they need to do is cancel it and they can still read the message....which is a bit daft! lol

i just sent myself a pm again....still never got a pop up telling me that i had mail and when i asked for a receipt
i just cancelled and was still able to read the message lol

That happens in exactly the same way if you do it via email. ;-)

so there really isnt any point of "ask for a reciept" :whistling: :giggle:
#15
What you have to remember is they are "private" messages and it's right to have a cancel button for read receipts as e-mails do.

If the person you are trying to contact has posted in a forum, you can always leave a message in the thread letting them know to check their PMs.

That's right, it doesn't always work for me. I think the background of that area changing colour is a good idea.
#17
yeh i think its a cool idea, maybe its an idea for Admin to do if he wants.
#18
Something like this Emma ?

I think that's yellow wouldn't be in keeping with the site, but the same red as the top bar would be nice.

It's up to admin, I think it would be very handy. As many people have pop up blockers, and we regularly PM newbies who never reply at all.
#20
When i saw the title from the forum page i thought someone had been exposing them in PM's :giggle:

Thats what i mean tho, its a colour to stand out, maybe the orange in the actual HUKD banner at the top left...

Yeh its wholly up to Admin but the idea is there anyway :)

Would be a good idea, I have the popup turned on, and also emails - but I know that not everyone will

Crazy1, Admin didn't say he was going to do it, I've just done a mock up of what it could be like if he did.
