Posted:Unread by recipient, unread by recipient, unread by recipient...

The private message concept seems to be completely foreign and utterly ineffective to many of us. I know that there is a "please check your PM" post that floats around started by Ray but even that doesn't seem to get people to check.

Of course we could just email them but that defeats the purpose of the PM system which is taking up all of this room.

Any positive ideas?


Well, shall we go?
Yes, let's go.

Posted:People can get all PM's emailed to them.
Message is included in the email. Only becomes read by recipient if the receiver looks at message on the site.
May be they got the message and did not bother logging into site to view again, hence it appears they never got it? when in fact they read the email.

Great way of keeping email addresses private
PM works quite well for me. I use it quite a bit.
