You send someone a message and NEVER get even a "kiss my" back! People just take the time and say no not this time.

Don't feel too bad. I've noticed a trend that folks in BUSINESS, where potentially many thousands of dollars (or more) are riding on a response totally FAIL to respond in a professional and timely manner. You'd think if serious bucks are riding on communication, people would be pretty prompt and courteous about replying to emails; not always the case, so don't be surprised that somebody doesn't bother to answer a query about a model car. If $$ won't buy courtesy...

And believe it or not, there are members here that have no idea there's a PM function.

The PM function works well at times when members need to take things "off board."

I've prepared a PM reply several times with an attachment and every time I preview it I mess something up and close the window, trashing the post. The poor guy must think I'm a jerk.

Don't ya hate it when you spend time writing a PM, attach photos etc and go to send only to find that the person's mail box is full!

Sometimes you just don't see that little red tag on that little mailbox icon in the upper right corner. Occasionally I'm late to respond because of that.

I always get a pop-up box with the new incoming message when I open up the Forum, in addition to that little red tag on the mailbox/messenger.

If you go to the notification options within your settings,you can check a box that will give you an email notification of a return message if you have any. You probably already know this.

considering that I only drop by every 3-4 weeks anymore, messages to me, if any, have probably lost their relevance by that time. it's the same at work; anybody that REALLY needs to talk to me has my cell number. otherwise, catch as catch can.

Exactly, just like in my case, I'm driving truck and I don't have the luxury of a smart phone or mobile internet. My schedule means I may not even have time to get internet time at a truckstop. Today I'm lucky, I'm stuck in sunny Florida waiting til Monday to deliver, so I have the luxury of motel WIFI, but even when home, I haven't been getting online. SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, if you PM me and I don't get back to you in a month or two, I'm busy making sure you have groceries on your table!

Johnathan, when you scroll over the letter box, click on "view all messages" and the ones you haven't answered will come up all together. Then after you answer one, it will go back to that page for the rest of the messages. ;)
