not authorized to PM

Post by blazaj » Tue Feb 18, 2014 8:36 am

Hi administrators,
I wanted to reply to a PM and told I was not authorized to send PMs. Can you please take a look at it.
Thank you
Jiri

Hi Jiri,

I think there was a reason for this (not a personal one) - I will wait for Phil to explain.

If you want to make something simple, then take one thing away that still allows you to do the job. Don't add two more things, and say they both make it easier.

Hi Jiri,

Sorry for this but we had to disable the private message system for all members expect Moderators and Administrators. I'm in the process of looking to switch this back on for VIP members soon.

The main reason is that we had an ex-member who sent out some unsolicited messages to people and cause some upset.

Sorry for the inconvenience this may cause.

Thanks,

Phil

Hi Phil,
Can the PM be restored to us 'Supporters' of the forum at some point too please?

Cheers
Colin

Aha, that's why my message to Phil is still in my outbox. (is the SCCS Phil the same as the LSForum Phil? :))
Would indeed be nice to be able to send PM's.

Yes I'm the same Phil. However, I try to keep SCCS as a separate account because I want to try and remain impartial.

Hi,
Same issue as above. Seems overkill to stop all personal messages when there is just one bad apple. Can we restore this?

Dear All,

We've just switched private messaging back on for members. Everyone can now send these to each other apart from guests and newly registered members. You have to have made a few posts before this feature will start to work on your account.

Thanks,
