Hi everyone, was wondering if there was a setting anywhere on the site to let you know when you have new unread personal messages?

I think there may be a email notification possible like you can get for the KO games, but I was hoping for something directly on the site - like a "# new" next to your total number of messages. Any ideas?

Thanks!

I'm in favor of that. I'd expand it to include "folders" like an Inbox, Sent, or a few user created folder options. I keep my mailbox empty just so it stays 0 in case I get a new message. Sometimes I'd like to keep a note, for future reference.

Might be more than Terry would be willing to embark on, but throwing it out there.

Upgrading the site's message system won't be easy, due to the way it's intertwined with quizzes through the correction notes. Terry is however aware that players wish to have some comfort features, so it's on the agenda.

For regular PM discussions between friends, I recommend that you use the forum PM feature - not only does that one support email notification and a "new message" icon, but you can also have up to 5 people on one message thread.
