Oh absolutely not. It's a registry key anyway that just performs a system modification. Perfectly fine.
I know, bad reason to bring this old topic back, but I probably have to since these don't give you notifications at all. As far as Armadillo's concerned: Orco, check your pm's, I just sent you one.
I know, it's about the only thing I don't like about this forum software. Thanks for the heads up will go check now.
I may reserve further comments on this for its own topic in sight and forum feedback, but last I looked at my own pun-bb installation, I thought I saw an extension that at least made the forum software display an unread count next to the private messages link. That may come in handy, although sadly I saw no extensions that threw an automated email at you if there was a new private message, at least none in the official repository. Unofficial extensions are everywhere, so you never know.
Alright Orko, we just you a new private message replying to yours as of now.
I'd prefer that the private messages entry in the main menu list alert you to new messages.
After being flooded with spam by giving out my actual email address, I will no longer give anyone my actual email address except close personal friends and family.
The address I gave the forum is an email address that will forward x number of emails to me, then self destruct, leaving a dead end for anyone who thinks to spam me with that address.
