I've today realized that there may have been some PMs (Personal Messages) which were sent to me over the past year or so through the HOS Forum which I didn't see and was not aware of.  Apparently, while I was "away" over the summer there were some re-structurings of the Forum site which I wasn't aware of and was too stupid to find.  This is absolutely no fault of the person updating and improving the site.  If you've sent me a PM and I never responded I can only apologize profusely.  You'd be sending a PM to a dinosaur.  We dinosaurs weren't cut out for this modern anthropogenic world and can't understand why -- year by year -- we dinosaurs are being left behind.  

Just let it be known that if you sent me a PM, and I didn't send a response, it was nothing personal.  I found that some messages which were also coming to me through normal email channels were automatically put in the "junk mail" folder.  Not my fault.  If I get a message I will do my best to respond.  The only messages that I intentionally ignore are hate mail and true junk mail.  

I just felt that I needed to express this because I do enjoy engaging with HOS Forum members.  

...And here I am off topic again.  As usual:  my apologies.

No apologies necessary because, well this time of year when trading specific ideas or propagation material exchanges, it's nice to keep the idea registered that a "PM system" exists in the first place.

I missed older PMs also, and assumed it was a personal failing.  I have similar misses with Zoom messages and other apps on the computer.  

 

But I wonder if there's something we can do to make them more visible, or if it can be configured to send an email when there are unacknowledged PMs.

Thought I got notified of a PM once. Yep! See here. On your dashboard, under options is a checkbox to be notified by email when a pm is addressed to you.

Interesting, looks like I already have that selected.
