Quick one for you m8.:spinsmile:

Is there any way if you can tell if a private message you have sent to someone has actually been recieved and read by them ?

I mean,I know they will recieve it and a popup will tell them it's there but how do you actually know if they read it ?

If not at the moment could it be put in the works for the future???

And also can admins monitor PM's or is that invasion of privacy...

It's not currently an option, but is already on the to-do list, as an option. :smile:

I don't think admins should be able to view PMs, as PMs are a global thing, not just specific to one board... That's kinda like bugging your neighbour's phone line. :smile:

No problem m8...Was just wondering coz it's a feature on other boards...But other boards are not global as you say.
Also they're nowhere near as classy as this...:thumb:

I guess i'm just running out of things to ask in my quest for total understanding of Best Boards.:wink:

*Pamster :wink: @ wellmashed's post and post count*


Well then it's time for a new release? Right BbBoy? :lol: Coming soon. One thing I wanted to add was with like say the kind of script you host yourself-the burden of tech support is on you-you have to go in and tweak it and maintain it. Even with that in mind, I bet most people wouldn't be so active with boards like those if they knew a lot of things were not confidential.

I know when I found out it made me not post on that type of 'personally hosted system' where one or two people are the ones in control of the whole thing's information database...I think what makes us stand apart is that we have the ability to give users and admins a back up they can download and restore from-maintain a current copy of all their settings and everything. I think it takes the weight off the admin so that he has us to come to for help himself and he can do some things himself that will prevent a need to come here.

If anyone needs help they have a link straight here in their User CP or if they think they spot a bug-we want to know. :biggrin:

Glad to help wellmashed!

And you're not being a pain so don't think that ok? Anytime you have a question or need help just ask.



I'm trying to get it all straight myself so that I can answer any questions by my members if the need arises......
It will probably look very unorganised if I have to keep saying to my members "Oh..I don't know...I'm the Admin here but go and ask someone else...."

For the first part of my origional question I happened to be on my board at the time someone came on and PM'd me to ask something...

So I got the PM as a popup straight away...

I answered it and even though I knew he was on the board I expected an answer...
(maybe he left by then I don't know)
But the answer didn't come.....

Which led me to the origional question....

If there was a feature that told me that he had actually read it then I would know........

And for the Admins reading private messages part......

I use another board and if you want me to tell you what it is then I can whisper it to you and probably even find you the thread that this question was born from....

Basically there was a bunch of people that were 'discussing' via private message how they were pissed off with a moderators descision and what was the best way to damage the board........

And it was intercepted before damage was done......

Hence the question about PM monitering.....
But as BbBoy has said this is a different environment because it is a global community......

I hope I read your post all wrong but it just looks to me.......

I really do love the way this board system works and will adapt to anything that goes because the service here is second to none....

All I am trying to do is understand exactly how it ticks......

Peace.....

Oh wellmashed I just admiting your high Support board post count-I enjoy reading your enthusastic posts and seeing how happy you've been with out service, please accept my apology if you think I meant otherwise. I was trying to be cute. It's just neat your past the newbie user level mark of 51 posts. :smile:

As for the questions regarding PM's and ability to somehow check them I will have to let BbBoy tackle that one-though I can see totally what you mean about being able to intercepti it BEFORE someone damaged a board-sad how some people just seem to get kicks out of cyber-vandalism you know? :sad:

This however is a interesting though:
If there was a feature that told me that he had actually read it then I would know...
I wonder if maybe that is something we might be able to add on. :smile: I like having the on board image-really helps you see you have a new one. :biggrin:

Yes, I agree that having the ability to see if your message was read would be really cool!

Speaking of post count......

I also think pm tracking would be a great feature. At another board I go to, the message tracking tells you what you've sent, and if it's been read or not.
