Wait...you get private messages?

And here I always thought it was just broken and that's why I don't get anything...

Nope not broken.

After reading some of the replies on here, I would seriously consider giving yourselves a break from ATS.

Worrying about what's behind a virtual envelope? It's either a virtual applause or a virtual telling off, or worse still, a message from another member either pointing out the flaws in your rationale or like totes agreeing with everything you have to say.

What I'm saying is, don't fear the white envelope, embrace it.


I agree but I think that what I was saying was that it was less about the message and more about the sense of guilt that I had overstepped the mark on a personal level and knew that I should have had more restraint.



Ah, I get it all the time after 'Dristing', that's Drinking and posting, 'Dristing'

I'll have to post a rant about this later on. Provided I don't forget. Maybe you can send me a pm to remind me?

No?

*crickets*

My response is more instinctual and less speculative.

*Sees highlighted envelope icon suggestion a notification or PM*

*Eyebrows perk up*

*Clicks*

That's the entirety of my initial reaction. Mild surprise + automatic click.

Peace.

I get excited about it. It's interesting to have conversations on here. As long as you play by the T&C it's all good chatting

I noticed a couples thread by your other half and just made me wonder how many couples on ATS met through PMing each other....hmmm

Peace

Well, like I said, usually I'm curious. Nobody cares enough to write to me most of the time.

I'm so alone...so very alone.


So of course I start getting haiku's pm'ed to me.

Please stop, it was a joke, it's funny ha ha.

I didn't want a pen pal anyway.

About once a year, it's an actual PM..

The rest of the time it's letting me know someone responded to a post I made.

So, I'm generally apathetic to the envelope.

I get a surprise now and than tho.

You've given me a great idea: Hate Mail Pen Pals.

That's a great idea, right?

I guess I have learned how to edge up to the line without going over as I never really fear the pm from a mod. I think I have only had 2 in my time thst I was reprimanded for something I said. Once was for an amazing obvious troll is trolling image I posted in reference to another member I got my wrist slapped for thst one lol.

Since then I have found ways within the T&C to tell people to f off and stop trolling

Well, I haven't had one in a very long time.


It usually makes me happy to see that white envelope!!


Yeah...happy!! But now...it is a barren place with tumble weeds and dust piling up and *sniff* no messages at all.

I expect it to be a swat, sometimes a slap from the mods but once in a while it's a message from a friend or a reply to one.

Mine usually say something to the effect of....


Keep it up olaru and I stick that keyboard so far up your *** that you will **** semi colons.

That was an actual PM back in the day....

Most of the other threatening ones weren't near as clever.

When I see the white envelope, I celebrate!!

All of mine are "applause" or "a thread of your's has been moved" so I try to stay optimistic about it and hope it will just be more of the same. I've learned that, if a topic is pissin' me off to the point I can't remain civil, I should just walk away.
