Asking Those with PM Problems To Post in Member Introduction Thread

After registering and after two posts and 48 hours you should be able to post in other forums. After 5 posts ( this is tied to the automated spam tool) send and receive PM from and to anyone. If you can't, post in your introduction thread with the title PM problem! There is a delayed time after the 48 hours and 2 posts, at 49 hours the promotion updates the two post, so 49 hours and 1 minute post anywhere except How To Forum

This thread is closed/ locked ,as spammers in the past would join and hide in inactive members introduction threads, 48 hours they would spam the whole forum.

So I see a couple issues that new members may not be aware of;

To reply to a PM click on your message first it will open, click QUOTE, compose your message and send / submit. To Check your sent messages, click PM, second down from in box is sent, if you don't have your user CP set to save messages, well you won't have any, if you want this changed and you can't figure how to, send me a PM , I can change it for you!

A second method instead of Quoting to reply to a PM would be to click on the user name and second down, send PM this allows you to chose a subject then compose and send your message

If you have say 2 messages showing, first click on PM opens the message, you can delete it by checking the box on the right, scrolling down and change under selected messagesthe default is move to folder and GO there are a further 7 functions you can change.It will continue to show 2 messages, click PM message again, opens the second one, a third click basically exits your PM.

Second related to saving PM, under user CP scroll down and view Private messages, this is what you will see:
List Messages
Send New Message
Track Messages
Edit Folders

Click edit folders, again having a second browser open makes it easy peasy ( OK EDDIE I need a new one), you can copy user names like any other copy and paste method using right click.When you add a new user make sure to scroll to the bottom of the Edit Folders and SAVE

So Say you have added Onewizard, you have added Onewizard to your Edit Folders, saved it, now click on your PM, the message from Onewizard, check the box to the right scroll down. In the case of moving the PM Onewizard
Under selected messages to the right you want to see Move To Folder, to the right of that you should see GO1 click GO1, a new window should open, with your list of saved users, find Onewizard, beside that box click GO , clicking anything will exit this ( well that is a stretch ) From here in experiment, again my advice is have two browsers open, the first one with a topic you were viewing and the second is where you are experimenting, when in doubt open 3 browsers, your extreme left ( first one) don't screw with, all else fails you got it to fall back on.

As Of March 6 , 2017 the sending/ responding to Private messages has been corrected and new members with 5 post count and 49 hours should be able to send PM . If anyone remains with problems sending PM just start a new thread in Member introduction Problems sending PM one of us mods or Admin will respond to it.

Apparently it is still tied to post count of new members ,5 posts and 48 hours plus 1 hour for the promotion to update data.
If for some reason you want to buy something and don't have the needed 48 hours, just add the to a post in your introduction thread with a title looking to buy, one of us mods can contact the seller on your behalf and we are able to send your email address to the seller privately. This does happen and just recently happened.

Email / PM

For those that experience PM problems for whatever reason, you can use the email option. One of those things that you can turn on for those exceptions and when resolved turn off.
If you have receive emails from members such as Y*****t , instead of PM you can send email, only admin knows what the email is. Clicking on Y*****t you have send PM also send a email. To change this in your User CP click on User CP just left of Log Out, in the left hand column look for the second title down Settings & Options , inside that title the fourth down is Edit Options click on that, inside that second title down is Messaging & Notification, third down is recieve email from members, check that box, while you are here check the other settings, when done scroll all the way to the bottom, click Save Changes. Happy cycling !!
