Flying Arrow,

If you go into your profile, you can input your Instant Messaging ID, be it AOL, Yahoo, etc. Then, on your posts, there is a link where a user can click on to send a IM directly. Same think with e-mail as well. This is an alternitive to messaging within the site. Not sure if it is better or worse, but an alteritive.

Hi Guys,

I had turned that feature off, but I can turn it on.  Just to let members know, you can turn off that feature through your profile page if you don't want others to email you or IM you.  I don't want people to be inundated with spam.  I'll see if I can turn it on, so that only other approved boardmembers can use the feature and that the public cannot access it.

Crip - Thanks. I don't use IM right now so PM's on the site would be useful to me.
Sanjeev - I think it would be worthwhile and yes, it is usually only for members.

Hi Guys,

The "PM" feature should be active now.  Could one of you try and "PM" me, so I can see if it is working.  Thanks very much!

Crip just messaged me and it seems to be working well.  You can adjust your own personal settings on your own profile.  Let me know if you guys notice other features that you would like to use.  Thanks!

I'd like to suggest adding two more boards...

Suggestions: For user suggestions about the board.
Testing: For testing posts


or maybe they can be combined into one like "Suggestions & Testing".

Hi KFR,

The vote on one "General Thread" or a number of seperate boards seems to be firmly on the side of one "General Thread."  So adding more boards probably won't fly.  I would suggest if you want to test something, go ahead and then you can delete it afterwards.  Feel free to explore the various tools and features.  Cheers!
