(Forgive me if this is the wrong place)
 
I'm patient when I want to be, and I was the first time it happened. But I'm getting really sick and tired of people replying to me through messages, not understanding what a notification message actually is. IT IS NOT A CHAT ROOM. It's telling you that somebody replied to you in a thread. It should not be replied to and it's not for discussion. Go to the freakin' thread that is linked in the freakin' message.
 
Yeah... so anyway, can it be made more clear for new guys?

I like then when they're meant as PMs. I do not like to see messages that I made in the forums replied to in a PM, and the people not understanding what I'm talking about. Plus, we can't flag PMs.

@JediXMan: haha why would you flag them? Unless they're sending offensive things to you.

Just add a Mod to the PM and drop yourself if they did anything that you think should be flagged.

Yes, well, I seem to attract irritating individuals who mostly turn out to be trolls.

And I usually do. But why can't people understand that it's meant as a notification message?

@JediXMan: oh wow, yeah I've only gotten one obnoxious PM recently and he basically said he was going contact staff members and have me banned. Looks like it worked real well for him :P

I may have gotten one of those. Never been banned, so I must be doing something right.
 
But I get people who want to have full discussions. And I really don't want to do that in PM with people I don't know. I do and have had lengthy discussions in PM with people I did know, however.

I did this once in the past. A long time ago. Haven't done it since it...well there are few incidents but they are off-topic stuff.

Yeah, this is a huge pet peeve of mine. 
 
You can't flag troll PMs, but you can forward them to a mod! :)

You don't know me so well, it would appear.
