Am I being dense or does the fact that you have a new message(s) not show very obviously? Could you be emailed notification of such?

Also, you don't appear to be able to delete messages? Or in fact tell who they've come from apart from a character name.
(e.g. I got some messages from "SpiN" and I have no idea who they are)

L8R,
Adam.

Hi Adam

I have been thinking of adding an (optional) email notification for when you get messages.

At the moment, you can tell whether you have a message when you are logged in by the following 3 ways:
1) In the forums, under the line "Welcome, Adam T" (next to your profile pic at the top), there is a line:
"Show Latest Posts | My Profile | My Messages | Logout | Announcements"

If you have a new message, this will read:
"Show Latest Posts | My Profile | My Messages (1 New) | Logout | Announcements"

2) Under the drop-down menu at the very top of the page, "MEMBERSHIP", you can go to your inbox via the link "Your Messages"

3) If you click on the link "Your HQ Membership", also under the MEMBERSHIP menu, you can see whether you have any new messages there too.

Currently you can't delete messages, but I'm sure I'll add functionality to do that at some stage. Likewise, to be able to tell which guild a character comes from (and their position within it).

As for SpiN, I guess you didn't see my forum posting where I said "I've sent a few messages from my sprite to get the ball rolling - don't worry about them" (or similar)! I found the conversation amusing anyway...

Cheers,
Sarah

Yeah, I think I must have noticed the Messages (1 new) thing.

Sneaky girl! How did you change your image for different posts? On other boards it changes your avatar board-wide on all your posts when you switch it!

Character specific avatars on posts would be great! How did you do it? Does this board remember what avatar you had when you posted?

It must have been a while since you played Spin, I don't remember ever having seen you as her. What is SpiN? (apart from a nutter? )

L8R,
Adam.

P.S. I think SpiN's picture is too big, you have yucky looking scroll bars in your profile.

Hi Adam,

You must have missed some of my posts in this thread:

www.heroquest-larp.co.uk/forums.html?fun...amp;amp;start=10#266

At the moment, my test code is resizing images based on 150 pixels dimensions. I'll change this so it's slightly smaller, to avoid the scrollbar.

Once it's ready, when you post as a particular character, it will select the correct avatar for your post.

Yes, SpiN was last out on a XMas theme many moons ago, like 2005 or something. She (well, It) is a squeaky water sprite and talks like its messages read. I expect a number of characters believe it should be squished!

Outstanding. Well done that clever young lady.
(I can call you young, 'cause I'm old)

As for the squishing... somehow I can imagine. So, do you just constantly eat sugar to get in character?

L8R,
Adam.
