Just a suggestion ... Update FAQ, so this "feature" is clearly manifested to new board members, because it's not very obvious. I, for example, have not run into this sort of a setup on any other board, I must say.

The FAQ is generated by the phpbb software, so we don't have easy control over what it says.

In the future, we plan to migrate to another message board software, so finer points like this will change.

I made this topic sticky so it will stay near the top of the section.

FWIW, there is a topic "Welcome Message to New Members" at the top of each forum section, that will point you to a number of index threads, FAQs and helpful topics on various subjects.


BTW, all four of these posts on this page are completely OT for this thread, and probably should go in this thread
viewtopic.php?f=13&t=52635
or perhaps a completley new one.

My PM is not sent out ???

Post by ichiban » Nov 07 2019 11:37am

I tried to send someone a respond PM today but it did not go out for 5 hours already. I tried re-sending another one and it didn't go out for another 30 minutes. Another PM to another guy since July 2019 did not go out as well. All the 3 PMs are still shown in "outbox(3)" but each one marked as sent with date and time stamped. They are never moved to "sent messages" box.

How to fix this ? :?: :?:

Thanks a bunch, amberwolf. I thought I was the only one.

That means that guy I replied a PM to, has not opened his PM since July 2019.

I've been a member since 2018, and I've never noticed this until now. I was worried people weren't getting my messages.
