Checking your Inbox and Responding to PM's



When a staff member tries to contact a member it is usually done by PM- when possible it is also done by e-mail or instant messengers.

The problem about the PM system is that some of you have not even been checking your private messages - especially those communications, advisories or even warnings given out by staff members, then…when you finally discover you were banned or warned for breaking a rule, etc. you retaliate against the staff member who had issued these PM's to you when it is your responsiblity to keep tabs on your own inbox.

When a member is breaking rules and does not respond to the PM's sent to him by a staff member…we really have no other choice than to block this member's account since we do not know if he is not responding on purpose or is simply too absent-minded to check his inbox and this is the only way we can stop that member from continuing doing what has caused the problem in the first place.

At any rate- having to constantly try and get certain member's to correspond is like babysitting- it's very unnecessary and frustrating and often leads to nothing but problems and future tensions between that member and the staff member who had sent him the PM's.

I will mention this once and hope that you all assume the responsibility of checking your inbox on a regular basis to avoid these problems- if you do not check your inbox on a regular basis…I strongly suggest you do so at least every 2-3 days.

I don't check my inbox everyday, but don't worry, I had set it so that it would display a pop-up when a message was sent to me :) :D :grin2: .

Also, the new posts don't work.. I only get the new posts from like an hour, and not from the last time I checked…

This is entirely the wrong place to post these responses, Chris- that's what the PM should have explained and don't ask member's what their opinions are…if you recieved a PM from a staff member that is sufficient advisory enough.

Some of you have been issued PM's regarding site-related violations and have not responded to the PMs sent to you and are still commiting the same infractions. If you do not respond to the PM's or e-mails sent to you then I will have no other choice than to block your account for lack of cooperation- this is the only way I can prevent those of you commiting the same infratcions over and over.
