Introducing Private Messaging


    Feb 17 2012 | 6:55 pm
    You can now send messages behind the scenes to other forum members on cycling74.com. Simply click the "Message this User" link below their name on a forum thread, or from their profile page. If you just want to test it out, feel free to bombard me with messages. Should be fairly self-explanatory. As always, let us know if you run across any issues or have suggestions on how we can make this forum a more fulfilling place to visit.

      Hi, cool feature (even if I almost never use PM)!
      I don't want to hijack your thread but I'm new to this forum and I experience strange behavior and I guess you must be its admin so : it seems that there's 2 out of sync servers and depending how I navigate the website I'm on one or the other... for instance if I see cycling74.com in the url (a simple ping tells me it's resolved on 67.23.9.214) I know that everything is fine but some links like "your profile" point directly to another one that doesn't know me! :) 67.23.3.6 (without having to go through a DNS server, the links start with the IP address). Idem, if I click directly on the forum link from the index page that's fine but if I click support first I switch on the other one (and threads are out of date)...
      EDIT : in fact it's more like if the 2 forums were running in parallel ex : monkeymuffin posted 7h ago a message complaining about a thread he started few day ago and that doesn't appear on "67.23.3.6" and actually both messages don't appear in the "67.23.9.214" forum...

      Hi Err0r_500, thanks for the heads up! We've gone in and changed those links. They should be the proper URLs now.

      Would love to see this implemented in the new forum...

      +1
      (it's weird how the forums have gone through so many changes... yet there are even less benefits for users than back in 2006. at least bring back the pms.)
