Heya. I can't find any way to know when I have a PM. On some other forums there will be the words "MESSAGES" on screen somewhere, and next to it will be a number indicating you have some, like: MESSAGES (3)
So far the workaround is to always remember to email someone or post on a thread they are likely to read to say "hey, I sent you a PM five days ago" or to remember to click the PM link every day just to see if anything's there.
Is there a better solution or different settings? I searched through profile settings and notifications and preferences but didn't find anything relevant.
