    Here's a thing: have we always been able to "comment" on a particular post rather than replying to the overall thread, or did they come about sometime after I drifted away? How do you know those comments are even there if they aren't comments to one of your own posts? Do you just…not?

    This seems like a cognitively complicated thing, having post-comments and thread-replies.

    The smilies broke years ago and I never figured out how to fix them.

    Thanks Greeneyes. So they are not Personal Messages.

    I just posted a message to Lilbird on her User Profile. I believe that anyone can see it. Does someone other than Lilbird want to check?

    Here is a shot from the phone as well. It is iPhone 7 Plus iOS 12.1.4 I have tried a number of browsers including Brave (my default), Safari, Firefox, and Chrome. On the desktop, the iPad and the phone, with any browser tried, the results are the same. The word Message has replaced the word Notifications and PMs do not exist. The 2 in the bar next to the word Messages refers to notifications for the two posts you made QuoterGal. When I try to send someone a PM from the link in their profile, I get the you are not logged in message.

When I click on message it goes to this screen that tells me I am not logged in, ...though clearly I am.

    Well, now *I'm* "Befoozled" - I have no idea why what we see and our DM access differs so much. You all - except mods & Diso - are in the same permissions group, so it's not that setting. (Mods have extra access, of course, and Diso cos that was the only way she could post her smilies.

    vBulletin, unlike in the waaaay distant past, hosts goners on their server and does the software updates themselves, so it's all uniform in that respect. I can only assume it has something to do with the differing versions of OS, even if we're on the same platforms.

    I'm sorry I can't ask A. to look at it - he's beyond busy these days keeping Javista afloat during this pandemic crisis. And vBulletin rately answers in the best of times, let alone now. All I can do right now is email any of you (at the email you used to sign up at New Goners with) anyone else's you are missing, if they give permission here; it, too, would be the email that the member put when they signed up.

    Sorry to be so lame about this.

    Other folks: if you haven't already posted a pic of what you see to get in - or NOT get in - to DM, it would be helpful if you could, along with your OS version info. At least we could see if there's a pattern.

    The image you attached above, in which the two choices are labeled:




    "Private Message: Receive Email Notification of new Private Messages"/"This setting allows you to be notified via email of new private messages. The setting is independent of other notification options."


    and



    "Receive Birthday Email"/"This allows you to receive a happy birthday email message on your birthday. The setting is independent of other notification options. The option Receive..."



    ...aren't what I'm referring to in my DM explanation or image. Those two options you posted in *your* image relate to getting 1) an actual email if/when you get a DM, and 2) a birthday *email* on your birthday. Neither of them would take you to your DM message center. (In fact, I don't even have those two email options at the top of my page(s), which leads me to suspect we're looking at goners forum via different means. I'm on an iphone 6, software 12.4 on safari browser - what are you using?)




    The top-of-the-page options I'm referring to - just above the GONERS logo - are what are shown in *my* view in the image I posted above, and again here below. They consist only of a) "Notications" - which takes you to recent comments on your posts, and b) "Messages", which can either take you directly to your DM message center, and which also offers a pull-down menu with links to a number of one's recent individual messages, to the message center overall, and an option to compose a DM directly without going to the message center. (You're also shown, at the farthest right of the strip, an image of your profile icon & your call-name.)


    So, do you *not* have this option strip (Notifications/Messages/Your icon & name) at the top of your page?


    If not, possibly because you're on a different OS, they must be *somewhere*, which we can explore further.

    ... which looks like this.

    And this is where I click to unroll the item that lets me attach photos without linking to a URL.

    Alrighty, this is the view I get from just about anywhere in Goners, circled in red at the top is what I click to get to my DMs control panel.
