Is there a way to delete your private messages?
Nope, not yet.
That would be kinda cool, actually a little suggestion here dRD when you go to send someone a PM, if u have a long list of PM you have to scroll passed them all to get to the "Compose A New Private Message" link and for lazy people like me, thats not good lol
I think you should be able to delete the messages from our screens but still have then on afterdawn incase the recipient replies late, etc...
I have tonnes of messages and i was lokking for a link i couldnt find in one of them. Its a real pain! I hope you can think of something boss
Well give him time to think about it. I know from speaking with dRD on IRC that he barely has time to do things from months back so we should stop piling on the work really!
Nah, its better to get feedback than no feedback at all. And all of these things are issues that NEED to be addressed -- timeline for finishing the fixes is somewhat fuzzy yet, but anyway..
Well man, if i can ever help just send me a txt off ICQ, i left my fone number somewhere in the *missing text ;-)* lol_X_X_X_X_X_[small]http://www.BillLonero.com - Check out a true artists music!

Maybe also a good idea to be able to create folders, just like in a free email service.
yeh i think private messaging is a good feature
hello- i am real new at this. i got an email that said i have a private message. i logged into the afterdark.com and got the "welcome" but when i clicked the "private message" line, it came back "you have to log in first". but i did log in. what an i doing wrong?
p.s. don't send a reply as a private message or i won't be able to read it.
Wel scroll up right to the top of this page and on the right hand side it will display
grey options e.g.
add to bookmark
edit etc etc
if private message is listed click and your there
however if it is not (which willmost probably be the case since your new to this)
click on log in
sucessfully log in and then the private message option will be displayed ok
thanks for the reply. i have been doing just as you suggest. i log in, i see that grey private messages, but when i click on it, it gives me a "you have to log in first" message. i log in, it gives me that "welcome back" you can now browse as a registered user, but i still cannot seem to get into those private messages.
they must be really private, even from me.
well i really dont know no other way to get in soo i think this might be a job for dRD
Hm. Our system checks if your IP remains the same during the usage session and if it doesn't, it kills your cookie which normally keeps you logged in. I've fixed the issue with proxies earlier this year, so my only guess is that you use some tool that ""protects your privacy"" (which they don't do, your IP is always there) by tweaking the HTTP headers of yours. Try turning all kinds of thingies like Norton AntiVirus, etc off for a moment and see if that helps -- and please report back to this thread whether it helped or not.
dRD- thanks for the suggestions. i turned off norton, i changed the internet security to low, but i still get that "you have to log in first" message even after i get the "welcome back" greeting. i am using AOL 9.0 plus- does that do anything weird?
it maybe because u maybe using the AOL browser to access the afterdawn.com site
i suggest you use IE watever version 4,5 or 6
and arrange the cookie settings by going to tools and internet options
thanks so much! i did what UK_MEWZ suggested and used internet explorer instead of AOL 9.0 plus and voila, i got to the private messages!
i am so happy this fix did not involve changing a bunch of settings and hopping on one foot!
thanks to all for your help!
thats good to hear
i knew it was somink simple
its good u got in
u musta read my msg then
its all good
continue learning and getting the knowledge from afterdawn.com
