    So, PM's. Unless you are trained to look in the top rt corner every time you come here, and see if your "PM" button is bolded.. you will likely miss this.

    Anything we can do about it?
    email notify?
    popup that you have a message?

    I noticed the same thing. I think by the time I noticed the PM was about 2 months old.

    Yes, please do something about this. I just noticed the PM link in the upper right after reading this thread and had messages dating back to August.

    Just thought I would throw my hat into this ring. Just noticed (today is March 14th, 2014) that I had had a PM from late February.

    Would REALLY love to see PM notifications somehow other than that little bolded "PM" at the top right - e-mail notifications would be fantastic, or even pop-ups the next time you log in!

    Cheers and thanks! :)

    There's no good way to do this, largely because the board software is horse crap from before the age of myspace. It doesn't even have private messages out of the box... but what the hell, why not try.

    Here's doing it the bad way - one-time email notifications to the profile email of the receiver, opt in/out at will in profile settings:

    (tested loosely, will most likely work only with valid SMTP credentials provided in the forum settings)

    Nice work! Hoping this gets added - one-time is all I need! I check my e-mail often. :)

    Kudos mate!

    woops, sorry guys, never saw this thread for some reason! :p

    I just added the extension, you can enable it via a checkbox under Profile -> Settings -> Private Messages.
