    I wonder the notification mechanism can be changed. Instead of notifying all new posts, the site only sends notifications on the threads that have new posts. Currently we have several notifications with repeated threads and they are not in any order. It's hard to parse out the threads and to know which oldest post of the thread to be read first. Also it would be nice to have an option to clear notification for each thread instead of clearing notifications for all threads.

    Probably it's not too difficult for programmers to make this change: Only send notification on the first new post instead of sending notifications on all new posts.

    I still don’t see the need to delete the old pm’s. At not like they take up some limited bandwidth or get in the way. Then again I am one who doesn’t always delete old emails either. And sometimes being able to pull up old info is helpful.

    Ok I don’t know if this is a relaunch issue, but I just replied to a post. It was long enough to split into two paragraphs but when I went to post, it only posted the first paragraph.

    As of an hour ago the top of each page has more gray space than before. Desktop Edge.

    I would love to delete old PMs. I also delete emails after I read them.

    Can this be done from an IPad...or only from a computer.
  • thumper1thumper1 Registered User Posts: 68,534 Senior Member
    I found it...but it will take me a LONG time to delete all of the PMs I couldn’t delete while that feature wasn’t available!

    I’m just not a saver of these things. But I do keep important PMs!

    When accessing this site on iOS is anyone else getting a lot of redirections to ads that “mimic Facebook” and you have to exit safari to get rid of it?

    Yes, many are. I installed iOS 1Blocker which stops them. These are likely automated ads placed through Google etc. They may be impossible to stop, short of some new web protocol. Cat and mouse; Google can stop one of them, and the crooks just create another.
