Private message suggestion

I suggest that you put the private message thing in a more prominent location. There are probably people who have private messages and don't know it. I know that today is the first time I checked it in a long time.

More prominent? Like in the middle of the forum listing?

IMHO there's ample opportunity to check or be notified of new PMs:

1. set popup notification
2. set email notification
3. click usercp. It's one click and you'll see new messages right away.

“Who are you?” “A friend. I'm here to prevent you from making a mistake.” “You have no idea what I'm doing here, friend.” “In specific terms, no, but I swore an oath to protect the world...” (continuum)
“It's a goal you won't understand until later. Your job is to make sure he doesn't achieve the goal.” (bsg)

And if you log in through the main menu...
The bottom of the menu will tell you if you have unread messages.

Pop-up works best, even on mine and CRSam's slow backwoods connections of 11.2 and 13.7kbs.

Ya, that's right CR, I upgraded.
Right turn, Clyde.
