Private Messages have been the most requested feature in the recent weeks. Now you can enjoy them on LumberJocks.
Since the messages are private nobody except the message sender and message recipient has access to the message. So you may use them to send any kind of private data like email addresses (or other contact details) or to send anything addressed specifically to the recipient in case you don’t want to show that information publicly.
You can always access your messages through this direct link: http://lumberjocks.com/messages (note that you must be signed in) or by clicking on the “Messages” link in the header – this link also changes to reflect the number of new/unread messages in your inbox:
By default you are notified about the received messages by email – you can change this setting under Account → Email notifications.
If you want to compose new message you have two options. Either go to Messages → Compose new message (here you will be able to select one of your buddies as the message recipient) or browse to any Jock’s profile page and click on “Send a message” link to compose new message addresed to that Jock:
I hope you will enjoy this new feature and if you will have any comments about it don’t hesitate to contact me.
