To those of you that post on the IWS Forum and aren't aware, you can send and receive Private Messages.
This is a great method to contact another poster for advice, offer info or to personally mock them without others knowing Smile

The problem is that knowing that you have a PM in your Inbox isn't very visible.
Until someone first told me "hey, I sent you a PM, did you read it?", I didn't even know it existed.
If a PM is in your Inbox, IWS will indicate this in the Message Center banner shown below as "1 unread".
This banner is displayed anytime you enter the Forum. It's at the top of the page below the IWS blue banner.

[ ] Search [ ] Profile [ ] Message Center (1 unread)


A slick way to manage incoming PMs is to have IWS send you an email whenever a PM arrives in your Inbox.
You can set this up by first going to Profile

[ ] Search [ ] Profile [ ] Message Center (1 unread)

Then scroll down to Preferences.
Find the option below and check the Yes bullet.
You can also customize other features here as many posters have done.

Notify on new Private Message: O Yes O No

Hope this info helps.

Cheers!
Mitch K

Thanks mkrasnoff! I just checked and found a message from 9 months ago. I know what private messages are, but I just assumed that I'd be notified somehow.

It's strange that I have to login again to see PMs. They should have a better interface. But without even changing the interface, they should definitely set "notify by email" as the default.

Either, as long as you add a flotation device, like a vest. Laughing

All right, I'm just kidding around. Really. Things have been too calm here lately, like Leo Carrillo today. Laughing

Even though it went by fast, it's been a long winter if you know what I mean. I know that sounds contradictory, but it's not.
