Private Messages (PMs):
To send a PM to somebody, click on the button labeled “PM” under their name. You can send no more than 50 PMs in any 24 hour period. Alex the Webmaster has tried to increase this number, but it seems to be stuck on 50 with the current software.
You can only see if you’ve received a PM by logging in. If you have one waiting for you, then box at the top of the page with the letters “PM” in it will turn green, and beside it you will see how many unread messages you have.
Also, the default setting for this software automatically sends an e-mail to your listed e-mail address every time you receive a PM. To change this, click on “Your Control Panel” at the top of the page, find “E-mail Settings” on the menu at the left, and then uncheck the box marked “Notify me via email when someone sends me a private message”.
When typing a PM, you can change your font properties (colour, size, italics, etc.). Attaching pictures or links to other pages won’t work, though.
Sometimes when a PM is sent, it will appear two or three times in the recipient’s inbox. We have no idea why this happens.
