improve private messaging
How important is the private messaging feature to you? Do you think we need to improve it with new features such as: allowing you to create folders to 'save' your messages in, or providing an outbox folder for you to review your 'sent' messages, or maybe even listing your new messages in bold. We want to know what you think. ~b
I am not knowing how to get to messages that I am notified I have from here on my home e mail page. Valentine
LISTING MESSAGES IN BOLD WOULD BE GREAT!!!
It's a no brainer to have an outbox. Why there isn't one makes no sense. I've never seen a website that doesn't allow you to see the messages you've sent. As a result I missed several responses from people because the our private message center is unclear and blends on with everything else.
I appreciate WN trying to improve, but I've been on this site for a long time and it was user friendly - now it's just a hot mess for viewing anything.
Additionally, there are too many people on here that do not know how to review poetry, etc. "I liked it." is not a review, kids.
How about a feature to let the author delete reviews from imbeciles that write this this way? Take their points away from them, too.
You can find your private messages by clicking on "Messages" under the Account drop down menu. Alternatively, you can use this direct link:
@MaryRivers: you can search for members using the form on our search page (scroll to the bottom 'find a member' section):
I vote for all three. : ) Also, I was just thinking today that it would be nice to have a search bar that could lead people to the artist's page. or a search that's not just for the writing, but the writer. : )
I have a private message and do not know where it is to be found! Valentine

I can't figure out how to get my private messages. It says go to the "members area" and click on "my private messages" but I do not see a button for that. It just takes me to my profile editing area. Help please.
My biggest "needs" for the PM features are to be able to go back and read sent messages, as well as to be able to see which messages are read or unread.
@John Email notifications haven't been discontinued. We seem to be having an issue with our mail server. Our developer is working on it.

I hope the e-mail comments have not been discontinued permanently. Much of the enjoyment of the site comes from comments between writers.
provide a sent file, not necessary to have folders
All of those suggestions sound great. It is very helpful to be able to save your sent messages and also to have new messages in bold. I like that alot. : )
