Might I suggest a little tweak?

This is actually rather difficult for a newbie to do, since they do not have access to view profiles. Perhaps add some info on how to send a PM to someone. I found a workaround through my own profile page (not on messages), but that doesn't seem like the way it is intended to be done, certainly not very intuitive.


Your mileage may vary... in accordance with the prophecy.

Do not back up. Severe tire damage.

Yes, by all means suggest tweaks. We should be making some updates in the near future.

I knew this thread was started but could not find it...until now. I'm glad it's here. I think it's a great idea to tweak and re-tweak to get it an effective message for our newbies.

Maybe this welcome message should be sent out via email so the newbie could be informed that the blinking white envelope means "you've got PM mail" and it's not just decoration (like I and a few others first thought).

Other than possibly adding that, I like the ideas voiced above.

If you need help, send a Private Message to one of the Moderators.

Possibly, include a "hot button" in the welcoming note to initiate a PM to a "phantom" user id, just for this purpose, able to be checked by any/all of the mods/admins.

Just a thought....

Great thoughts NG. Appreciate your ideas. Would love to hear any additional perspectives since it's been all of 5+ weeks since you were a newbie. cool

What else might have made your entrance and acclimation to our web site and forums more "user friendly?" Also, did you know that the blinking white envelope meant "you've got mail" right away? (It used to be red.)

Thanks,
Ace
