Dear ATS

before the site update (which I like btw) there was a great little feature on the bottom of the page to alert you to a private message in your inbox.
That was really handy and I miss it. So handy if time is limited, you knew immediately there was a message waiting.

Any chance of re-introducing it?

Pretty please?
Slides envelope casually across table.

In the second row of icons at the top of the page, the envelope-shaped icon goes white if you get a PM.
I agree, it doesn't really grab your attention, nor is the feature very well advertised.
Nobody will notice it if they haven't been warned to look out for it.

Miss the little yellow message indicator, too.

That little clear envelope Icon (upper right screen) turns white when you have a PM.

ETA: I see Disraeli covered that.

Further:

Once I trained myself to look at it, I notice the envelope. Maybe it should flash? Maybe flash two tone if a reply in a thread is also waiting? Would make conversation that much easier, imo.

Hi HumansEh,

I just sent you a PM. You will notice that your envelope for private messages ( on the second top header ) has turned white.

I like this system better but it's pretty much the same as getting a message saying you got a message. Just need to look at the envelope once in a while..

Hope this helps.

Aboutface enters the room and begins vacuuming the site again. She approaches the table and while asking you to lift your feet and you comply, slides the envelope in a smooth move towards her pocket, all the while encouraging you in your quest to beg and plead for restoration of an old appreciated site feature, however knowing all the while the white envelope feature is easy to find.

Thanks so much everyone!
I never noticed it before.
True, it doesn't grab your attention, but like most things once you are made aware.

I thought it changed colour to indicate that orcs were coming!



Thanks all, I appreciate your patience and help.

Humanseh, stands up and marvels at cleanliness of freshly vacuumed site. Puts on hat (tinfoil) and exits the room, silently wondering what happened to his empty envelope that was on the table.

You need to make twenty posts (in reply to other people's threads) before you can do a number of things, including start your own threads and send personal messages.

Like Disraeli said you will need 20 posts to send a private message (PM) to other members. its this "safeguard" they have in place to help prevent spam.

I see you are new here so I am linking you to another thread where a moderator has laid out the guidelines. Hope that helps.
