Private messages

Sorry, I checked the FAQs for this...Do people know when they get private messages? Or do they just have to check it to see? I think it's stupid if you have to page someone every time you send them a private message just to make them aware they have one.

    I have no idea, but I did read this first as private massages, wondering what you were going to be asking...

    I think I read somewhere that it is supposed to e-mail you, but right now that isn't working.

    I think it depends on your preferences.  I have my preferences set to not receive any emails from the knot, so I don't receive notification.

    And betrothed, I'm disgusted with most of the comments that you have posted. I don't think I've ever read such judgmental comments in my life. I'm so lucky that the girls I speak to on theknot are nothing like you...I would've never come on here for ADVICE if I would've encountered a big a bitch as you. I genuinely feel awful for your children or your future children, and I think it would be irresponsible of YOU not to invest in their future therapy sessions starting now. Because trust me when I tell you honey, they're gonna need it. ~jcaruncho2010

    The notification isn't working yet, but it should eventually.

    I would prefer that people NOT page someone every time they send them a message.  I would prefer it if people just check their PMs daily or whenever they come to the Knot, like they would an e-mail account.  Of course, no one has to do what I prefer, I'm just sayin'.

    That's funny dani, because I was just going to page the person I sent a private message to. I might still anyway, sorry. I'm not on during the weekend and I know the person is online right now.

    Dani - I feel weird about paging people also, but I think because PMs are so new, people aren't going to think to check them.

    My thoughts exactly.

    I agree right now it is new. I just see it A LOT on the nest. XYZ - YGPM. NFT.

    But also right now it is so slow, extra posts telling people they have a PM really don't matter.

    That's what I've been doing Dani, but I don't have any messages. Boo.

    For those of us who are technology stupid, how do you check your private messages?
  • Options
    I think you just have to click the "Private messages" link to the left under the community boards.
