I just noticed, and read, and replied to, a "private message" on this forum... that someone sent me at the end of November.


It's not obvious to me, with my setup, when I have a "private message" here; I really ended up noticing that one because of some kind of keyboard accident. And, of course, nearly a month after it was written.

So, please do NOT consider "Private Messaging" a good way to get a message to me. You might consider dropping "the moderator of this board" (What handle are you using this week?) an email, if you can't reach me for some reason. Perhaps she would be kind enough to forward your mail to me, if you asked nicely... And if someone brings it to my attention (and it sticks) I can certainly check here for "private messages", if directed to do so...

Is Private Messaging working here now? As of late 2005, we'd given up on it as not working properly (messages weren't coming through), and I hadn't tried it since. Of course, there've been a software update or two since then...

Yeah, it works. It's also possible to set it up to get an email when a PM is waiting for you. Some people might not want to do that for good and sufficient reasons, though. So, Ellen is right, don't consider PMs to be reliable communication.
