There is, of course, no PM content printed but the fact that A has PM'd B could have an adverse affect?

    As I say, though, I don't really understand the 'Shout' facility yet.
    hmm,, maybe as you are a mod you can see who pm'd who? I dont see that at all... I see it says when someone has posted a thread,, or posted on a thread, or a blog etc.... but havent seen anything about pm's at all. Mind you could always see on whos online who was pm'ing... not who they were messaging to ,, but i cant even see anything in the shoutbox about pms at all. Can you actually see it Gill?

    Re: ForumGarden's new Shout Box!

    Wouldn't it be easier to use the "contact us" and ask TS if members can tell who is PM-ing who in the shout box? I'm off to do that now.

    Kaz, I did see that my pms that showed that I had pm'd someone and could read their response in the shoutbox. But I'm not sure if anyone could actually read the pm itself although I could since I sent it. So, I deleted mine from the shoutbox. I did use 'contact' 2x's yesterday and never received a response.

    I then realized that you can delet info about your postings in your 'settings.' So i ticked off things I don't want to show in the shoutbox.

    All seems good now I think.

    well i never saw any pms posted at all,, and i can still see convo's from yesterday and the day before in there so they must only show to you anyway... but best just have it the way you do as not showing in your settings.

    sometimes it takes a day or two to get a reply and it is weekend also ,,

    Re: ForumGarden's new Shout Box!

    I still don't get it.........

    I don't see a shoutbox on my page.
    I don't understand the purpose of it.
    So....................I will carry on as usual.

    Its like live chat if you click on forums on the green task bar its at the top of that page.
    I think you can create a chat room thats private for you and whoever... but not worked it out yet
