PMs not seen.

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.

Rooney,

I've gotten a couple of notices in my email indicating that you have sent me a PM.  I've been unable to find them on the HOS site, and I also am NOT on twitter.  The notifications were preceded by an "@" symbol suggesting to me that you might think I am.  My apologies that I haven't been able to receive your messages.  I hope that you see this because I just wanted to let you know.  

Nevertheless, Greetings and best wishes to you.

Tim (Reinettes).

I don't belong to twitter and wasn't aware they use that symbol. I use it after seeing it's use put into practice on HOS. I also never sent you any emails or PM with that symbol in it. I will see into it why my computer via the keyboard is switching that symbol in place of the double quote symbol. I will see into looking now using a new HOS browsing session of some of my posts using my smartphone to dig more into it. Thanks for the heads up.

Rooney,

I'm glad that you saw the message.  I hope that I'm not "doing anything wrong".  After all, when it comes to computers and the "new" computer age, I'm just a lumbering Protoceratops trying to figure out why I no longer recognize the world around me; I guess it's time for me to go extinct. Laugh    I look forward to your input.  God knows I haven't been a very nice person lately.

Tim (Reinettes).
