Disable PM option not working properly

I have disabled PMs but I still get some PMs from moderators which I then cannot reply to.

Please can you fix this so that when PMs are disabled, they are disabled for everyone. Or alternatively allow replying/sending of PMs when PMs are disabled. Thanks.

I am sure that PMs from moderators cannot be disabled. Even if they could be,it would be wrong. It is important that they have the ability to contact all members. Also it is not possible to put them on your ignore list

Re: Disable PM option not working properly

The system software has been designed in a way that a member cannot refuse receiving PMs from Moderators. Moderators, quite unlike other members, cannot put a member on an ignore list either.

Simplest solution is to modify at your User Control Panel and turn on receiving PMs.

We encourage this as we do not allow the publishing of say email addresses on most subforums. It is even necessary when one is advertising something ( Velo vignette for example ) to have the feature turned on.

Trust this explains.

Hmmmm, this sounds ominous! Are you workin up to a hissy-fit? Which may be followed by a flounce? Only to de-flounce again in a coupla months, sneaking back pretending like nothing ever happened?
That would be awesome!

There have been so many over the years. They come, they go, they come back again.

Don't know who you may be referring to, but in these cases it is a lose/lose situation - if someone were to announce their return with a huge fanfare they would also be shot down in flames

Good point though - who do you call if the Mods are harassing you ?

A real wo/man would go "NARU", then come back as another user, most likely of the opposite sex.

I can think of one who left as a man and returned as a little girl...
