    I suggested this idea in the past and for one reason or another the idea was rejected. Well I'm bored and figured I'd ask again. Is there a way to make it more noticeable that you have a new pm other then a bold number at the top of the screen? Could you make it red or some other color that sticks out or make a small window that pops up saying something like "You have a new pm from ......" and it either goes away after a couple seconds or you just click the X in the corner of it?


    Thanks, Mark.

    I agree but honest for me I don't like screen say pop you have new pm but I want check later.

    I alway click new post to this and check see number say unread if it 1 or high then I click to see and answer it.

    But last thread I make got 20 pm in 1 hours. Keep mind it would be pita see screen pop every pm arrive.

    Go to 'edit options' in your control panel and check the box marked "Show New Private Message Notification Pop-up" and click save. With this setting, anytime you change or refresh the page you'll get a pop up notification for any new PM's. You can set to receive an email notification for new PM's as well.

    i have the notification turned on, but maybe only half the time it actually pops up and tells me. ive looked up to see new PMs but never got a pop up to tell me know.

    You might want to check your edit options to make sure the right option is checked.

    Your spam / pop up blocker is probably stopping them.
