    How come I dont always get a popup window to tell me I have a new pm? Sometimes, I go to send a pm to someone, only to find that one that has been sitting there for an hour or two. Other times, I get a popup window telling me that I have one, as soon as I click on a thread. Does anyone else experience the same thing?

    also......what's the limit of pm's before the box is full? My folders are getting a bit crowded and I cant find stuff that I wanted to save. I should probably clean house, lol.

    Valley when you Pm me there is a deny recipe with it, now when I pm you back when that happens you may not get it.

    When I pm you by clicking you profile, you get it. You might what to check your Edit Options to see if this is uchecked somewhere or set up right.

    It should be 30 Pm's but I'm not sure with this forum.

    no Jay..thats not the problem. I'm getting your pm's ok, along with everyone else's. The problem is that the popup window that alerts you that you have pms doesnt seem to work half the time. I have it set to alert me but sometimes it doesnt.

    Its not a big deal at all so dont worry about it. :)

    Oh yes the PM thingy ...

    Yup I know what you're talking about with the PM popup notification window ... sometimes it does and other times it doesn't.

    When you have ONE and only ONE browser open
    and ...
    You're not in the middle of making a post
    and ...

    Say what? :confused:

    Its not a big deal at all so dont worry about it.

    valley you're killin me :D ... start a thread about it and the next post is like ......... ya ya ya dont sweat it I'm not :rolleyes:

    Slow down a little bit ok ;)


    You'll see a PM you'll see the PM popup notification sometimes

    however.... If you have multiple browsers open
    and...
    you're going back and forth between them all there's a good chance that you will not see a popup notification.

    It's got nothing to do with anything else in your settings it's more of a timing thingy and if Venus and Mars line up right you'll get the popup notification and otherwise you wont see it at all type thing.

    Best thing is to REFRESH the Main page often and look for new PM's that may be sitting there unread.

    Then again I'd bet the bank that angeleyes knows all the angles about PM's so it may be good to check with her. ;)

    200 pms is the maximum and that counts SENT as well as RECEIVED.......

    At the bottom of the main forums page you can see your total PMs that are counting towards the limit......

    Noooooooooo dont go there that's a whole other thread :eek:

    ... but since ya just had to :rolleyes:

    If it hasn't happened yet it's bound to happen to ya at some point. You'll be typing a PM reply (this will happen whenever you make a nice lengthy one too trust me) ;) you'll hit the send button and you'll get get a
    special kind of popup notification that sez something like The person that you're trying to send a PM to has a full PM box and they will receive an e-mail to notify them to clear their PM box type message.

    Well I dont know bout you but in my experience they wont check their e-mails ... BUT ... they will keep sending you PMs wondering what the deal is :confused: and you'll wind up starting a thread just to let em know Your PM box is full !!! :(

    It gets better though because if ya didn't think to copy/paste whatever your PM reply was and save it to send later then you get to start all over :mad:

    and btw Candy said 200 PM's is the limit but I was thinking that it was 150 PM's .... I'd go with whatever Candy tells me :D
