Questions about the new forum

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.


Oh that must be the reason. I’ll wait until I become a member. Thank you, @reisegern !

There is a problem about sending pm. When I write a messages in Chinese, there is an error saying that my message is not a complete sentence. How can I send the message out?

Does anyone how to set up the little flag?

Maybe there is a perfect solution that I don’t know.
But maybe you could write something in English, like “Thank you.” or “Have a nice day.” or something similar.

Each message hast a minimum length. Was your message in Chinese really short? That might be solution to the problem.

But I can receive messages which are even shorter. Even though I added more words, the same error still exists

Can you post an example of the text you are trying to send that gets refused? Also, if you can post the exact error message that can help.

I tried to find a private message topic where someone gave me a link I wanted to revisit, but it disappeared from my inbox. (it’s not archived either) I finally found it in my notifications but when I clicked to open the topic I got a page that said “Oops! That page is private.” But I am logged in?? And now I can’t see it in my notifications either.

I haven’t had this message yet, but I suspect that the sender of the message deleted you from it. That would also be the reason why the message disappeared from your inbox.
If you know the name of the sender you should ask him/her.

It is possible to do that??? :astonished:

I know a person can remove themselves from a conversation but I can also delete the recipients of my message from it if I don’t want them to see it anymore? Honestly, that would be a very strange feature.

Yes. If you were the one that wrote the 1st message, you can remove everybody. (don’t know exactly how it works, but the option to remove others is active - I only had removed myself…)

what means the number in a grey circle that is placed after the namens of certain tags or round robins?

Do you mean that?

The number indicates how many new posts have been written since you last read the topic.

Question: does the colour mean anything? When I’m browsing the different topics, on the right hand side it shows the number of views and the number of replies. Some are orange and some are brown although most of the time they’re grey…
Thank you!

The brighter the colour, the higher proportion of “likes” to postings.
