Forum PMs In Game! (SteamID registered members only)

Postby TC on Tue May 27, 2008 6:52 am

You can now read your forum PMs in game by saying "/pm". It shows you the most recent messages you have received (new and read). You can then read them in full text. When you have new messages, you will be automatically notified in game when its sent, or when you next join.

After reading a message you can choose to mark messages as read, or leave them so you're reminded again on the forums. This is particularly useful feature if you want to follow up a message once you've finished playing and want the forum to remind you later.

This service is designed so you don't miss out on any urgent PMs while playing, and for those people who less frequently visit the forums but want to know when they have messages.

Note. It is not possible to reply to a message in game. But you can choose to leave or not depending on the importance of the message you have read.

Have fun

Auto PM those that have not been on in a while so that when they connect they remember to come back on the forums.

Hi. I think that was because i was restarting the system that does this, so lost track it had already shown it to you. I'll double check the logs to make sure that was the reason. Cheers

actually... its a really bad idea - you read the pm, and cant reply, then you play all nervous because you really want, like and would love to reply, you then finally leave the game (!), reply, and when you try and reconnect, the server is full :-(

just kidding - all these extra features just make the servers and community better by the minute. cheers TC!

Excellent. It's a shame it doesn't work with non-Source games, but I guess you can't have everything! :)

suggested feature: each pm and its replies should be listed under a single headline, instead of seeing em all at the same time, not really knowing which belongs to what..
aside from that, from what i've seen, it works great and fast.
