Default Lite sugestion

Everytime someone gets a PM, they don't know...eept by e-mail...and this...if it works.

I was wondering something, why don't we add a pop-up window saying you have a PM? At least, they could directly go there...see my point?

That feature uses alot of server resources, because it has to check for new pms every time someone clicks a page.

If your worried about resource on a dedicated server. Time to do some house cleaning.

Prune your forums.. Theres posts from ages ago.. There what a thread I had made some one replied to. Then a different user came up and complained and said dont bring up old posts..

If we cant bring them up and reply to a post say from 2003, Why even have them. Same with user memebrs.. If they havent posted in like 6 months delete the user profile..

With these types of forums the PM pop up feature wont use alot of resource.

Your "Whos Online" and "Currently Browseing" Feature uses more resources then a PM popup feature

the reason the old posts are there are for guests to read. a lot of those threads show up on google searches and ppl read them and fix there problems without having to post anything. the useres don't take up much resouces are thats what i have bin told when i suggested to delete all the old ones.

What kind of forums do go onto GG, geeks to go ?
To be honest, i believe that email notification is just fine ... i mean, do we really need pop ups just to show that a PM has arrived? Isn't that going abit overboard ?

Nope. I have that on my forums and it's very usefull part of communication if you have a few people on the forums for a period of time.. It doesn't increase resource as some would say. No more then the browsing or whos online..

What do you mean behind in the times? like just the actual site or the stuff we talk about(hardware).

No no! like the site features, some of them..

<<<-------
You no what nearly ever one wants lol (Custom Avatars)
And as you suggest the pm alert etc..
Things like that, but its not really that BIG of a deal, really the info and help etc makes up for it i guess...you no like what the sites REALLY about..

I was just saying thats all


now as to you...
