One less reason I don't like PM's (thanks).

Discussion in 'Website Announcements, Feedback, Issues, & Guides' started by Dipsy Doodle Doo, Apr 13, 2008.

  1. Hi! Suppose someone sends you an involved PM, many faceted, a thing you can't answer without re-reading the original message several times.

    With a PM, the message isn't there to reference.

    PM would be great if it could reference past messages in the same line "like in email, you can have a continuous line".
    Thanks,

    Can't you just hit the "Quote" instead if the "Reply"? Hitting the "Quote"
    repeats the entire message. It works the same as if in the forum.

    I always hit the "quote" button in the reply, but some people just like to keep their PM's clean. To each their own I guess.

    What I can't figure out is how to delete more than one message at a time, without having to open it first to push delete. [​IMG]

    Quote:Carri if you open your main PM message window if you scroll down and then look to the bottom Lft corner it says "Delete Multiple Messages" or something like that. YOu click on that then it will add little check off boxes for you to click on next to the list of PM's check them off and then press Delete.

    I LOVE using the "Quote" it makes my replies much easier to type up then I go back ad remove the "Quote" once I am done typing.... well, sometimes [​IMG]
