Private Messages & Member Bulletin Board - PLEASE READ!

edited September 2017 in Help - Computer & System

Three good things to know about and to consider regarding member privacy on the forum are as follows:

  1. Private Messages - Private messages can be sent to others and you can do so by clicking on a member's screen name and selecting "message" button on the screen.  Only you and the individual you are communicating with can see this communication.

  2. Member Bulletin Board - When you type inside the box shown in the photo it becomes "public information" that all others can see, either by clicking on your screen name or selecting the "activity" menu option at the top of the forum screen.  

  3. Activity -  Comments posted on the member bulletin board become "public information" and can be seen by anyone who clicks on the activity menu.  

CAUTION - Protect all of your personal information (e.g., email address, phone number, credit card info, etc.) and use good judgement when posting to the  forum as it can be easily seen/obtained by anyone using the forum and across the Internet.

    BUMP! Lots of new members! Historically, most members don't look at their own or the forum's Activity pages, so if you post there, your post may not be read by many folks, or may be missed if you're trying to reach out to a specific member. This category has lots of information re getting around here. Happy [email protected]! Judi

    I see messages on the wall, or “activity “ section or “bulletin board” meant for specific members. Please read this so you can be sure the addressees actually see your messages-thanks.

    In the interest of promoting good communication, I’m bumping this thread for all the new members!  

    Additionally, there’s an Introductions Category. Please feel free to say Hey and post something about yourself there. And, it’s best to post a question by selecting a related category and then tap new discussion so that all members can see it. That increases the possibility you’ll get more (or any) responses.

    Okay, everyone. Please read. There’s a lot of missed opportunities to help others, plus there are lots of unanswered messages on the Activity Page (click on “Activity” at the top of the page).  There were hurt feelings this morning, too.

    So, don’t type in the large box on the person’s profile page. Type in the smallest MESSAGE box in the upper right, otherwise, you won’t get your message answered. No one looks daily at the Activity page, so just try to remember to type in the small box. 

    And no, I didn’t design this platform and I understand this is the “normal format”, so we have to live with it. 

    Off my soapbox......

    Do you want a message to go to a specific person? Then read this. Do you want the largest possible number of people to see your question, in hopes of getting a solution to a problem? If so, search on key words in the upper right search field for prior discussions. If you find nothing helpful, pick a related category and start a new discussion. Posts to the Activity page on this forum do not get read by everyone, so you limit the number of brainiacs who could help you. Of course, sometimes that can be a good thing. 😏

    Hi New Members and welcome to the [email protected] forum!  Your post from an "Activity" area will reach few members and maybe only yourself!  

    1.  For a new thread, repost under New Discussion from the Home page.

    2.  Leave a Comment at the bottom of a current thread.

    3.  Send a Private Message by selecting the member's name, then the Message icon in the upper right corner.
