If anyone has been having issues with the notification system such as PMs, following a topic, new topics, or replies to topics, I believe I have that all fixed. I got a few emails last night from the email system saying it couldn't deliver emails notifications for Mack and Smurf but I made changes today that should resolve that. I also made changes last week that should fix the issue of new users not getting their activation emails and it seems that's fixed as well.

If anyone notices any other notification emails they're not getting, please let me know here. Please also remember to check your spam folder as some may wind up on there at times depending on your email provider and their settings.

Is there a button where you can click like before, to set up a PM straight from a post?

ie. PM someone the first page of a forum game.

Not that I know of. You can screen shot it or grab the link from the web browser bar but not sure of a button. If on the desktop tho, you should be able to PM someone right from their bio if you click the PM button.

Odd that you can't do it anymore. Noticed it a few weeks ago.

@Chise - Right, I saw that you can PM someone directly from their bio.

However, we used to be able to. I'm not sure if it was skin specific, as in only available for subsilver users, or something like that. We used to be able to click on a post, and send it directly as a PM.

@lk3 - Ya same here. It made it a hell of a lot easier sending out reminders for games.

Oh well, not a huge deal. Just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing anything.

It might have been skin specific or maybe pre-3.2. They changed some stuff in 3.2 that it doesn't make sense why they'd remove it or make it work differently.

You know what I just noticed? I dunno about mobile, but on desktop underneath the avatar where it says Contact with the air bubble, if you click it you can go right to a PM in direct response to whatever post was made by the person. Problem solved!

Well right but it's always been that way as far I know. Mobile it never has I don't think. But to be clear, mobile to me means when the site is responsive. Like the old subsilver2, you could access it on mobile but that wasn't mobile functionality. It was like scrolling a desktop site on a phone like I do for Lotto sometimes.

Well with the above posts that were made a few weeks ago, it appeared that none of us knew of this. Unless you thought Bike and I meant something else.

See that's what I mentioned before. Like when we went to 3.1. From the desktop version at least. I thought that was always understood I guess. I almost never use the desktop version anymore tho so just figured that's what most people do I guess. But yea that feature has always been there on the desktop.

I visit often enough on my laptop. Although I generally make my game picks on my phone on Mondays, so finding this may not help me that much. Mainly just figured I'd post it to let Bike know, but he did anyway.

I literally wouldn't be on the site hardly ever if it wasn't for my phone. Like when I took over behind the scenes, I primarily used the desktop. Always had. But when I started wanting to keep tabs in case there were issues, I found visiting from my phone on the go to be problematic. So when phpbb 3.1 came out for the forum software in October 2014, I jumped all over it. That made boarding on mobile so freakin convenient. Like I only use the desktop if I'm making code changes. Or scoring a show. And even scoring, I use my iPad so it's not really a desktop but still the responsive makes it easier.

I visit on my phone all time, but at night like this when I'm off I usually leave the laptop open for whatever.. YouTube, ESPN, etc, so a lot of times I'll just visit on here. Plus I scored NXT tonight.
