Bung, you've PM'd me, but set yourself not to be able to receive replies back so I can't reply!

 

In regards to your message, I'll like to dob in my compatriot Wheelbarrow01 who is far more able to assist with things if Fibre Landline.  Thanks.

Sorry cbrpilot I appreciate the effort to contact me.

The issue I raised with you is apparently on the way to being sorted after a journalist contacted somebody in Spark Social Media.

Some change by BDFL to profile settings since 2013 must have occurred. Forum and pm notification is shown as "Enabled", does that need contact icon to be Yes to be valid?

If you have Privacy set then you won't receive PMs or mention notifications. This is not new.

I wonder whether it's case-sensitive. I'll test with you to avoid pestering Bung... @jase2985 @jase2985

 

Edit: Nope, it's underlined both, and reformatted them to lowercase (I typed the second one with a capital J).

So it looks like it won't underline/link it if the user has Privacy set. That makes it easy to tell at a glance whether the notification was sent.

 

Edit: freitasm snuck in :)
