    I got a "private message" notification stating that I had a message waiting. I clicked to open it up, but there was no PM. Is the PM program turned off?

    I left this board and then came back and it happened again:

    1. A screen popped up that said I had a private message waiting for me.

    2. It asked me if I wanted to view the new private message in a new window (click "OK" or "Cancel").

    3. I clicked "OK" and it brought me to my private messaging screen where it said:
    I'm confused. :confused:

    are you being scanned?

    I tightened up on the receipt of "cookies" and that stopped happening. I would get the message waiting prompt, and if I clicked on it I got an ad. Just an ad. and I thought it was President W calling for my special skills. LoL :)

    This happened to me last weekend. Have you tried changing the time frame? Near the middle, there is a menu that reads "show messages from". In my case, I changed it from one day to two days, and the message that I had been sent appeared (even though it had been sent the very same day). In any case, let us know how it turns out. Good luck!

    Mmm. I'm quite concerned about this, since we have absolutely no advertising whatsoever right now, and all of the admins HATE popup ads and have no intention of using them anytime in the forseeable future.

    Is it possible that the pop-ups were actually "pop-unders" from other sites you visited, or the dreaded "time-release popups" that some inactive windows will hurl out on you unexpectedly?

    pop unders, pop tarts,

    In my case I am not sure where they came from. But am pretty sure that it was not from degreenet. :)

    I've never gotten any type of popup or pop-under while using degreeinfo. I've also not had any problems using the Private Messaging and think it's a very neat feature.

    The email notification seems to work fine for the private messages, but not for the boards. No idea why this should be, but I've left the box checked to see what happens this time.

    I'm curious as to why some people are able to disable the PM, though, in particular you and Tom Head.

    No, it was not an advretising pop-up (I hate those too). It was unequovically from

    My PM is now working. Go figure.
