    Question for the Administrators and/or Moderators: Has there been any update on implementing in the new Basenotes what we had in the old Basenotes - the option to block private messages from all except from administrators and moderators? I brought this up a while ago and even added it to the master list of things to be fixed, but haven't heard any more about this.Thank you for your attention to this matter.

    I haven't head anything. I'm pretty sure they're aware of the request. Seems pretty straightforward to me.

    Not necessarily. I know members who have been harassed and/or had requests for samples through PMs. IMO one should have the option of turning this feature off instead of simply ignoring notices if they so choose.

    I thought if you block somebody that was it?

    am I missing something?

    I agree - we've had people who needed to block all PMs, or allow only those from friends. It's a good feature - and a necessary one for some folks. I'll see if I can find anything out when people wake up across the pond (and I wake up on this side! wink.gif )

    Apologies for the delay, hednic - it will hopefully be resolved soon as it's on the list.
