  • Is Private Messaging disabled? - PMs have been restored!

    I received a message, when trying to find my inbox, to the effect that the administrator has disabled private messaging.
    Is this true?

    Yes. Spammers were using this as a spamming conduit.

      I know PM's are disabled and have been since I joined, but vBulletin limits PM's to member-to-member communication and any member can opt out from receiving them. The communication system you had enabled when I first joined was not private messaging and it was vulnerable to spamming. Now that you are moderating membership, I would think PMs would be safe and valuable to members. PMs are enabled on almost every forum I belong to and are preferable to emails IMHO.

        I'll check with Rich on re-enabling the private messages.

          That would be appreciated Rupp. Thanks for considering it.

            Thanks for enabling private messaging. I think it will be useful.
