Given the nature of the hobby and the over abundance of parts and assistance everyone can give to one another.
Is it at all possible to have a Private Messaging System added to these forums so trades and or other dealings can be arranged and worked out off the main forums out of the public view?

Some people don't have e-mails addy's listed and it is tough to contact each other without a messaging option.

Just curious, Thanks!

But it's a great idea!!!!!!!!

I've seen it on other forums!!

No high hopes here, lol....I was just curious as i thought PM's were a part of all BB's software.

I'll go ahead and turn my e-mail on, I didn't even notice it wasn't, lol.

I'll go ahead and assume the answer is "NO" based on the fact that PM boxes take up bandwidth which in turn would increase the bill of running this site.

I can fully understand if they'd rather not use that function.

No Biggie, I just thought i'd ask anyhoo.... ;)

This was one of my first questions regarding our forums. However, unfortunately, we don't have the option of turning them on because PMs aren't built into this board. I wish it we had them also, guys.

It surprised me, too. I don't know why we don't have it or if it's just a version thing.

I would guess it has something to do with space. that is a feature that requires lots of server space when it comes to in-boxes, and people that never clean them out are annoying, lol.
So it makes sense that some versions of the software has it while others don't. some folks just don't need it or want it.
