Hey all,
I just heard that private messages are hard to find (even though i see them now on the side menu WAY down low!) but here a thread for people to tell other people that they need to check their Private Messages.

I can receive PM's, but I always get a server error trying to respond to them. So, feel free to PM me, but please include an email address. That might be a good practice in general with the PM's, since I don't know how broken that system is. BTW, who is Watcher? Sounds mysterious.

I would assume that watcher is an alias name for someone else who is soneone else. I.E. Split personality. Why would the first post be about PM's. odd I might say also!

This is why I have my account set up such that I receive an email every time I get a PM. I would never check it, otherwise.

pretty awesome. you posted a message to tell me of a private message that told me I had an e-mail.

oddly enough, I got the e-mail first, PM second, then checked this topic last.

already replied.


oh, MM, pm'd you about some serious business.
business regarding SMAX.
