Mail Box. and Friends List!

Post  williemcd on Wed Jan 22, 2014 4:14 pm

There are a few issues with Forumotion that I'm not 100% pleased with.. i.e. their photo posting hoops you need to go through (Why no drag and drop?).. but two that are subtle and a number of folks might not be aware of. 
1.  Messages... I think each user only has the capability to retain 50 or so messages.  I think there is a setting to increase it.... Admins?.. another point, when a user/members limits are met, this used to drop the OLDEST message.  A few minutes ago, I looked up a sent message and due to my mail box being full, it didn't retain it as it's not dropping old but rather rejecting new.  Admin?
2.  Friends List... I'm not sure what value this holds in the first place but it's there... Maybe because they are set up for forums that contain 1,000's of members.  But to accept a friends request, there is no prompt to do so.  In order to review your friends list, you must click on your Profile from the home page.  On that page is a friends list tab.. Here you'll see those that have befriended you or have blocked you.  
Later folks!  Bill

Cal...Here's the dummies guide to posting pics directly from your pc or other device... rather than having to post them to a pic hosting site first.. http://vafa.forumotion.com/t75-how-to-post-pics-directly-from-your-pc?highlight=posting+pics
