    Just a bit of constructive criticism if I may, I don't think it's clear enough when you've got a new private message.
    some forums it actually displays a popup window so you know instantly as soon as you refresh, on this you have to look at the top right for the number unread and it's only small.

    Agreed.
    In fact bonj's post prompted me to check my PM's and lo and behold...there was one...

    "You did not enter the correct format for the Can you spell? field. Please read the field description for the expected format."

    I've no idea. Have you filled in the final field on that page checking the "Can you spell" thing correctly? Don't know why it would be saying that now, but that might be why it's doing it.

    So now when you go back to that link I gave you, that option is definitely checked?

    I'll send you a PM now, we'll see what it does.

    Might be because of some pop up blocker..?

    Bonj (and anyone else who doesn't have this filled-in on their profile) the question it refers to is something I've added to stop automated spam-bots from trying to register.

    On the registration page the default answer is incorrect. People can easily read and answer the question correctly, but spam-bots can't. Simple, but it works well.

    The answer should be fairly obvious, so if you're trying to modify your profile and you haven't already filled-in this field - just read the question and enter the letter it is asking for.

    Cheers,
    Shaun

    PS. You only have to do this once; once completed, it shouldn't bug you again. :rolleyes:
