    "Watching" a thread gives you a choice of receiving an email notification or having it show up in your alerts. The old forum didn't have alerts only email notifications.

    Just logged in to find the new format in place and like what I see so far. May take a little getting used to however am finding my way around without too much trouble. Thanks for the upgrade Steve!

    Steve how do you edit a posted message.
    It seems you can correct/edit for a brief time after posting, but eventually (an hour or so?)
    the ability to edit disappears.

    The time limit on editing messages is set to 3 hours.

    We've had occasions in the past where people have decided to leave the forum and edited all their messages to ".....", also people editing their message out similarly once they have received an answer. In addition, spammers will sometimes make a quite innocent post, then come back a week later and edit their message to include a bunch of links to undesirable sites.

    So, the time limit is intended to be sufficient to fix typos etc but not sufficiently long enough for the above things to happen.

    The only thing I've noticed about the new format that I don't like, is it seems to take me awhile to spot when the post was made. It's just not easily seen, it st least not to me.

    In the "members online" section. Its list members, non-members, and robots. How does it know "robots"?

    I'm having trouble replying to a message that someone sent us privately..... I cannot find the reply button. it does not appear to be in the same place as before. Is there something I'm missing?

    Thought it may have been the network I have been on all week but the forum has been slow and hanging a lot until today. Fast and smooth now so either you fixed something or it fixed itself.

    Oops, clicked wrong message :)

    I'm having trouble replying to a message that someone sent us privately..... I cannot find the reply button. it does not appear to be in the same place as before. Is there something I'm missing?

    Just scroll all the way to the bottom of the message and the reply is there just like if you were posting in a thread.

    .... Yes I have scrolled all the way to the bottom and there is no reply button at all. There is a reply button on on the forums and here.... But there is not one on a private message anywhere that I can see. it is interesting at all the previous messages that I have received do have the reply button from the old system.

    Maybe the person that messaged you has a setting not to accept messages or something then? Sounds odd. I'll send you a message and see if you can reply to it.

    Can you please let me know the username of the account you are trying to message with? Pm if you like.

    I can take a look at their account and check it has the correct configuration.
