    PMs no longer red and blinking

    PM's are no longer red and blinking. I used to notice them. Now, not so much. Is there a CP setting for this or can it be restored?

    All I know is that they would blink. And sometimes when I looked at the forums, they would be posted at the very top just as the first item, just like it's own forum. That's gone, too.

    I also thought I was getting email from PM's but that may be turned off due to the recent hack attack.

    Email notification of PM's still works, but not of threads, and TBH if it isn't restored soon it will have a large negative effect on the forum/site as traffic is right down.

    I stopped receiving threads notifications a little more than 2 weeks ago. I tried resetting my subscriptions from instant to none and back to instant but didn't make a difference. For me instant notifications are one of the most useful and important features. I check my email constantly during the day and mostly come to the forum when notified of threads updates. So as Enforcer says, no notification, no visit.

    From what I understand, the hackers were using a vunerability in the thred notification system to send spam to users. http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/mp3c...en-hacked.html

    I am having this issue too. rdholtz had sent me a PM and i didn't notice it till like days later. Usually the forum will make this annoying green bar and red font come up. It will also put a huge PM banner on the home page when you first log in that says the user name that is PMing you. Doesn't seem to do any of that.

    What I don't understand is why the f*#k do people have to do this in a community that is geared towards helping others. I have to assume maybe its some dumb @$$ that couldn't figure the Car PC thing out and is now trying to punish us all.

    Jeez, sarcasm is lost on some people.


    Don't your dates get fed up with you scribbling on them all the time? Is that a best before type thing?
