Am I being dense? I must have missed something.
Good morning everyone
I re-enabled the private messaging feature last night as the spam attacks look to have subsided for the moment (I disabled them to prevent inboxes from being spammed and I will continue to monitor this).
Where possible please post in the relevant forum but if needed you can now resume using private messages.
Could you please provide more explanation on your case, so that it will be easier to understand your issue?
It is a typical forum interaction, you click on someone's profile and you can send them a message privately to their Inbox, without it showing up in the forum or everyone else's feed or Inbox.
People who want to be contacted out-of-band typically provide an email or contact details in their profile, or make their email address visible to signed in users.
There is no "Send Message" icon in my inbox. There is no little pencil in the menu bar. These appear in the documentation. Curious.
It was there when the forum was first brought up, it appears to have been removed/disabled.
PM's are frequently abused, usually with "Urgent look at my issue now" type crap, I usually disable them.
For instance, if you ask me for a Cube config file to show what my issue is, the only alternative is to publish it for the world to see. ST has a need to know, but some random dude in Canada doesn't.
The downside is getting really creepy messages from some random dude in Canada.
You can send a badge with a public message.
You can share a thread with a private message.
When the forum first came up we were able to send messages between each other, I don't have much call for it myself, and PM wasn't supported at all in the prior forum.
Something might have changed - I noticed this today:
Do you have this?
I noticed it had reappeared on my Inbox view a couple of hours ago and PM'd Alan.
I think they had changed the Spam settings a while back which had changed the behaviour of the source code formatter, they may have rolled some of that back.
You can also "Send a direct message" via someone Avatar/User page under the Action button on the right where the "Send Badge" action is.
Thank you all. It has reappeared for me too.
