Will there be a 'new PM alert' similar to the 'new comments' alert in the final site revamp?

Yeah, that would be good! :D If I don't know I'll get a PM, I don't check my PMs and then it's possible to not notice one for a long time :(

There is an option for email notifications for PMs in the settings. "Receive Email Notification of New Private Messages" just check the box. (While looking for this exact setting, I just saw that mine was unchecked for some reason, even though I have always had it checked, and I've been getting email notifications just fine? Confused.)

There's also been an option for you to have a pop-up notification when you receive a new PM while you're on the site, which since the overhaul, has not been working. I'm hoping that will be fixed soon.

I've been getting the pop-up notifications.

I've been getting the pop-up notifications.

Has it always been working for you? I haven't had a new PM within the last couple of days, but last week I was on the site when I had a new PM and didn't get a pop up.

I haven't been getting any pop-ups either.

Also, the email notifications aren't a good solution for someone (like me) who can access Cosplay.com at work, but not my personal email. I found it tremendously helpful to see my 'inbox' highlighted when there was something new to see there, and I miss that feature.

I'm hopeful that the final site revamp will offer something similar.

I've gotten the pop-ups right after I logged in and while I was currently logged in. I think I've only had 3 or 4 since the site change. I haven't had any new messages that didn't create a pop up. But I agree - it would be nice to have the unread message notification also displayed on the front page by your account like it used to be.

*GAH* I'm so frustrated >_<. The pop-ups still aren't working for me. I missed another PM that came in last night.

I wonder if it has something to do with different browsers?

Probably. Try Firefox if you aren't using it right now.

Exact same problem here. I even tried a different browser because I though Firefox's AdBlock Plus blocked it or something, but still nothing.

I use FireFox and that's how I can send PMs. Just click your name (like prior) and the drop down menu shows:

I don't get the pop up's yet either. It would be nice if we just got a little notification on the top part of the site.

Using Google Chrome and when I click on a user's name, I don't get any options to PM that user. Going to their profile page (which happens currently when I do click on a user's name) yields no option to PM. This is actually a bit of an issue because I kind of NEED to PM a few users about upcoming convention plans and I can't!

I get the pop-ups, but it would be a little more convenient, if there was a notification just like when we get "new comments". That way we know we have PM's waiting for us, then having to re-check all the time.

I did not get any pop-ups and my message stood there unread for two weeks!

On one of the forums I go to, there is a little number icon near my avatar on the top right for amount of unread PMs... perhaps this can be done?

I'm having the same problem, I get no notification that I have unread PM's and missed out on a few weeks worth of commission requests. I like the idea of a little icon or bubble by the username that would indicate unread messages, just like the new comments icon (which I really like). If it matters, I'm also using Google Chrome.

Use Firefox as a temporary work around. It's how I check my pm's. For some reason, Chrome is still not agreeing with some of the inner workings of the new cosplay.com format.

Popups should be showing now on non-forum pages. Basically, it was checking for PM's each page but if you were on a non-forum page, it wouldn't show the popup, and would consider the popup as "sent". I put in a quick fix and now it should work on all pages.

Currently finishing an unread message indicator for the top bar as well, similar to the one that shows new comments but with a simple unread # indicator instead.

I've put an indicator in the navigation bar as well now.

It shows the unread count, so if you've read all of your PM's it will disappear. We'll style it up a bit shortly as well, right now it's just a badge icon with the number in it.

Still noticing limited functionality in Chrome. The PM pop-up doesn't work, and unable to PM or use the right click menu that appears when you click on a user's name (as it doesn't appear)
