  • Private Messages have become useless

    Hi there pinoyhandyman, I have noticed that sending private messages to other members have become useless or difficult. It does not reach to whom ever it is intended. I have experienced this on several occasions. I suppose it started the same time the site say was improved in December of 2014.

    Just a moment ago, I was sending this message as a pm and was notified that it cannot be accepted for my allowed no. of messages if full or what ever.

    This has become so frustrating not just for me but perhaps to other members.

    I hope the site owner/admin can correct this anomaly!





    Thank you,

    i totally agree with rosy. what's worst is that anyone can read the message by just going to the member's user profile ... it's no longer a private message :-) ha ha ha

    i hope the technical support of these site will do something to correct this. otherwise, you'll see a lot of members leaving the site and transfer to another forum :-( ... personally, it's also one of the reason why the site has so many members who are not actively participating in the forums ... its human nature, people will first try to communicate with others on a personal (one on one) basis, and once they develope the confidence that what their thinking makes sense, then they'll start to actively participate in the forum discussions :-)

    honestly, this site and its members is the best i have seen locally for PH DIYers. members really show their passion for the DIY activities that interest them. added to this is the honest intention of really helping other DIYers who also wanted to learn :-) ... as one member posted before, 'yun ibang site, puro angasan lang' :-) he he he ... cheers

    Boo!

      Thanks for the heads-up. I have increased the number of private messages for the all usergroups accordingly. Thank you very much

        Yes...for some reason my message center has become.....not so good. PM's gone.... And, evidently, I can't send or receive new PM's.
        As can be seen....I am not "authorized"!!

        And, I cannot delete a separate album I created - not the "Posted Photos" album....
        I tried the "contact us" email with the problem...no response...even sent a PM to our moderator...maybe it was not received.
        Thank You for the help!!

          In sending messages, you have to be specific like you have to click the Private Message for the intended member,
          then it will indicate to write the title for the message. If you will not click the Private Message, it will just end up as
          an ordinary visitor's message.

          With regards to authorization, I think new members will have to have some number of post, how many ? I have no
          clue really because I didn't give it some attention in the past.

          Paul_S, yes I received your message the other day, I didn't respond immediately for I was trying also to find some
          answers or solution to your dilemma. I guess one possible way to delete your photos/pics is click the edit command,
          and the delete word will appear possibly at the bottom of the post.. Not so sure of this for I have not done it so but
          do try, it might work. You see many changes were made during the improvement of the site last Dec.of 2014 that
          up to now I am still trying to find out and learn.

          For the meantime I will still look for some solutions on the matter concerning your inquiry, or possibly give a
          private message to the Admin for more definite solution/s.



          Cheers,

                I checked the settings, seven. Can you check again? You should be able to send PMs to members of PHM. Thanks!

                    I on the contrary think that private messages are very effective. I'm promoting my business account in instagram and I'm using instagram bot auto dm, this is a fairly useful tool, since 80% of my followers read private messages. Usually I make a private mailing to those followers who have already bought something from me. I also do a post with information about discounts and promotions, but my posts may get lost in the tape.
