Most likely the problem is that with the change some past PMs are showing as unread which confuses members.  Once all PMs are read, the order is new ones showing at the top, and all the old ones are in date order below that.

The change was made to merge PMs in chat rooms with the once made through Profiles.  After a short getting your older PMs 'read' , this should work much smoother.

sorry for the problems caused by the change ....

Thanks for the reply Gunter.

No, sorry, it's going to be different. I'm sure it will take just a bit of adjustment to work for everyone.

Make sure to go through all the old PMs to mark them as read, or delete them,  and the system will fall into place.

Thanks for the reply. This is quite a shame. Our folks are not happy about it.  Unfortunately while trying to reply to them the messages disappeared. I have know idea where they went.  In my humble opinion it's a lousy set up.           Thanks again for the reply

Ok I'm not going to delete any messages but I don't see where I can mark as read to any message

If I may -

Having tinkered with it - there is no "mark as read" . . . when you click on one of the blocked out messages to any given member . . . it will open a discussion like window that contains all PM's you've exchanged with that person . . . so the system inherently takes it that you have looked at (read) all the messages listed that you've exchanged with that person . . .

When you close that window . . . it cycles that individual listing of messages to the bottom . . .

I don't like the new msg system.   

on facebook it is different- it stays there- separate.     In this format, after I reply to someone, the whole msg (msgs) to that person disappears off my PM page.   Gone.   Not at the bottom of the page - gone.      Sure, I can see it again when I click on that person's name on a post-- hit PM, and it all opens again.      

Last week I got a pm.  I glimpsed it. I replied.    I go to look at it again... I didn't catch the name of this ONE time writer who sent me the pm.   

It is NOT in my msg box.   I don't have a SENT msg area.      It is gone from the msg area.        I am a host/Master.     I will look at the reports and click on names about that time frame in order to find a needle in a haystack, to see who sent me that msg. 

I don't like it that after I reply to a msg--- it is gone from my PM box. 

If you have info that is helpful, I am listening. 

Otherwise:  please send a bottle of wine to my address, I need it.    :)

From forum member:

The private message screen looks totally different to me now.  I can no longer view "Sent messages".  I still use the Classic view, but even in the new Zeta view I can't find "Sent messages"?
