Particularly this bit: "we recommend that all members go to their PM preference area and change the option 'Would you like an alert box to notify you when a new Personal Message has arrived?' to "yes"........that way you won't miss important PM's that are sent out from the forum staff from time to time".
Sorry to oldhands, we've had quite a few new members recently and we don't really expect them to read ALL the rules and tutorials in one go ;D - but some have missed this one .
Once again folks you are reminded to check your PM's (Private Messages) - the forum staff do send out messages from time to time and in some cases these relate to breeches of our rules; often we have to take action anyway because members are not checking their PM's and then members claim surprise at our actions. In many cases, had those members checked their PM's first, such surprise could have been avoided!!
We would again remind you to set your PM preferences so that you get an advisory message when you have new PM's - details of how to do this are in our PM tutorial which can be found by CLICKING HERE.
