    Default HOT: Enabling PM Notification

    I've been attempting to contact MANY of you about editing your profiles to comply with site requirements and either you are flat out ignoring me or you never check your PM's and don't have PM notifications turned on.

    Personally, I'm getting fairly tired of putting the effort out to contact you only to be ignored. I keep as many of the PM's I send out to you so I can follow up on my messages. Because of this, my mailbox has been above 90% full for over a month now - and that's with me still deleting more than 20 messages/day.

    So, this message is my way of saying that I'm done giving you the benefit of the doubt. If you still ignore my PM's after this message I'll assume that you have intentionally chosen to not receive PM notifications and are intentionally ignoring me and, ultimately, choosing to NOT follow the established rules of this site that apply to everyone.

    What do I propose for YOU:
    (1) Check your PM's regularly.
    (2) Turn on your PM notifications.

    How do you turn on your PM notifications? Here's how you should edit your Messaging & Noticiations profile settings:

    You access the profile editing menus by clicking on "User CP" on the left-hand side of the forums' blue toolbar near the top of the forum window.

    Once you click on "User CP", select "Edit Options" in the Settings & Options menu group of the Control Panel menus on the left-hand side.

    Now, in the Messaging & Notification window, ensure the following items are checked:
    Receive Email from Administrators
    Receive Email from Other Members
    Enable Private Messaging
    Receive Email Notification of New Private Messages
    Show New Private Message Notification Pop-up

    Then click the "Save Changes" button.


    Now, while you're in there modifying your profile, ensure your location is listed in your profile.
    To add you location or to ensure it's listed, select "Edit Profile" in the Settings & Options menu group.
    Now in the main window, scroll down to the "Additional Information" block and enter your location into the "Location" "Where you live" box.

    Then click the "Save Changes" button.

    After this, I will recommend to Marlin that we do a little house cleaning for those who ignore my efforts to contact you to comply with site rules.

    Yeah, I've got bug up my butt, but dang people - REALLY!?

    If there is an Admin setting that will display a popup notification to those with new PMs I would recommend enabling it.

    Hard to get past it.

    Thanks Ginsue and all the Mods for keeping this unruly bunch of heathens in line. But seriously, I appreciate your time. Someday I will get you a beer.

    Has to be enabled by the member - which is one of the options I covered above.

    One of those things with this software, I'd have to go in and do each one.

    I'm not familiar with vBulliten, but other forum software packages have a "member reset" function (or something along those lines) where you can reset ever member to a specific setting.

    Yes. Been trying to juggle some funds to prepare. Wife got me in deep financially and I'm trying to figure out if I'll have ANY discretionary funds by May/June.
