This is an automatic message.

 

This topic has been moved from "MS FSX Forum" to "Help Using the AVSIM Forums". This move has been done for a number of possible reasons.

  • The most likely reason is that the post was off topic.
  • The topic could also have contained images or a video that were not appropriate to the original forum it was posted in.
  • The images might not have been "illustrative" or "explanatory" in nature.
  • The topic could have been moved because we deemed it to be more appropriately placed elsewhere.
Please ensure that your posts are "on topic" and contain illustrative images or videos as appropriate. Do not post videos or images just for entertainment purposes anywhere but in the screen shot or video forums. See our image posting rules here.

 

Members who continue to post off topic posts can be denied entry to specific forums in order to reduce and remove the practice. Your cooperation is appreciated.

I cant seem to find this in my settings but when you create your account isn't there a setting where you can allow admins/mods to send you PMs but not the general user?

I've never heard of anything like that before Jonathan.  Your profile allows you some customization but there is no restrictions on who can send PM's.

If you go into the messenger, on the left side, there appears to be an option to disable messenger. Not sure if that's the issue.

A lot of other forums have this option. Thought for a moment that AVSIM also had it.

It does, I just listed the steps to get to that option.

Nope what im talking about is a bit different. Other forums allow you to selectively block groups. eg you can receive PMs from admins and moderators but block average users or vice versa.

I'd be surprised if it let you block messages from administrators here, but I haven't tested that, so I have no idea. So I'm going to test something out. I just disabled mine. I would like an administrator to try to PM me to see if I get it.

I hit the Quote into PM button and was able to compose a PM but not send it.  Got the following error:

 

The following errors were found

The member AirKevin can not use the messaging system

This personal message has not been sent

 

Plus, if I put my cursor over your name, I did not have the option to PM you.

Well, that's interesting. I'm surprised the forum software even lets you block everyone, including administrators, from sending PMs.
