For Martins Eyes Only
« on: May 14, 2009, 08:57 PM »
Hi Martin, tried sending you a IM but it's nowhere to be seen in the Outbox so will use this instead.

Have noticed that if you start a thread you are also able to remove or lock that particular thread. Have only seen this privilege  available to moderators or admins on other forums so have to ask if this is intentional or not  ??.

Your private message reached me, Kiwi. I don't know why it wasn't in your outbox.

I shall investigate the question you raise.

Please don't find things that don't work properly on this forum! I had enough of things going wrong with the old one. If things start going wrong here, I think I will just give it all up as a bad job!

Regarding sent messages not appearing in the outbox...

When you type a private message to another member, look under the panel where you are typing the message. You will see a little box that you tick if you want to save a copy of the message in your outbox. Presumably, if you don't tick it, it wont put a copy in your outbox.

The default is unticked. I can't see a setting anywhere to change the default to ticked.
