I have just noticed that the notification top of the board which is supposed to tell you when you have a new PM in your inbox - doesn't seem to be working consistently.  Sometimes it tells you, sometimes not.
If you have set it to get an email notification when a Private Message has been set, that works ok, but don't rely on what it says in the Navigation Bar.

I received an email notification telling me someone had sent me a private message.  When I came in to the forum, yer man up top tells me "You have no new messages" - and yet when I went in to my messages, sure enough there was the message waiting for me.  This has happened more than once recently. (The first time I didn't take so much notice because thought I might have just misread the situation, but now that it's happened again, I can be sure).

So, don't just rely on that message up top.  Check your box every now and then if you have no other kind of notification set up in your personal control.

I also see that a PM I sent to a member here a few days ago is still sitting in my Outbox, which means that the recipient has not yet read it.  When the message has been read by the recipient, it will automatically move into your Sent box.

(That recipient is Feather, by the way).  Feather - check your PM's.
