Yay! I did it! Thanks @Kanerva
Hello, how do I close a topic I started ? I have received replies that help me understand better so I would like to stop any more posts. Thank you!
Flag your own topic, choose the option something else, and ask the moderators to close it.
Edit: or just wait @Bille to pop up and take care of it.
Which topic is it? I can close it.
Hello, it was in the general topics. “Thoughts on members who send…” Everyone’s answers helped me understand better. No sense in continuing responses. I appreciate your help in this and this whole community!
It’s always easier if you provide the URL for a topic that needs some kind of maintenance.
Hi so perhaps this is a daft question and I already know the answer…
When I message a member, the NEW U2U as it is, how do I know that the member has READ my message? I can see that the message has “Views”, which I presume if it says “2” then that’s myself and the person I sent it to? It’s just that with a U2U it was more obvious that the recipient had read the message. Thanks.
@EDC83 I moved your post .
And yes, you can never know that exactly, but you can guess from the number of hits on the message.
Thanks for moving my post… Shame you can’t know for sure like the U2U…
Yes, this has been discussed several times, but it is what it is.
I have a follow up question to the message one. If I open the message twice, does that count as two views? Or does it count each user once?
I think it depends on the time. If you open it a second, third, fourth time on the same day, all of them only count as one view. If you open it again the next day, it will be a second view. At least that is what I observed, I am not sure whether this is accurate.
Was surprised to see this new forum, wow! Will definitely start using this more now!
Just one question: I have been the member of old forum & postcrossing site for like ten years or more, but I still haven’t got the “old member” badge for this site. How can I get it?
sometimes it takes up to 24 hours to update badges… if after that, it’s still missing you can contact one of the admins
and welcome to the forum
Hello, How can I delete a private message ? Apologies if this was already answered ; I looked in the introductory guide and find this answer : To remove yourself from a conversation (and thus delete it from your inbox), use the
Add or Remove... button underneath the first message in the conversation. but I can’t find this button. Thanks in advance !
Thank you for your help, @yudi ! For some reason, I can’t see this part in my private messages… Well, it’s not a big deal, I will archive the message instead.
I think you had to click on the arrow (on the right upper corner at yudi’s pic) in your message first, then you will see it.
You find that option below the FIRST post in the message topic.
But maybe you don’t find it because you are still a basic user.
Just continue reading the forum for a few days and you will receive the status “member”, then you will be able do delete messages as explained.
