View Full Version : Do you have the private message pop-up box enabled?
November 6th, 2009, 02:08 PM
Although I believe it is enabled by default, you can disable it. Have you got it enabled or disabled? If you're wondering what exactly I'm talking about, it's that little box that comes up when you recieve a private message that includes both the sender and the title. :3
I think the private message pop-up box looks awesome so I've always had it enabled. XD;

Yes, I do have that enabled. When I have a new PM, I would prefer to know exactly who it is from and what the topic is about, straight away.
November 6th, 2009, 02:11 PM
Nah. I tend to notice when I get PMs anyways. It's only annoying to have that pop up thing.
November 6th, 2009, 02:50 PM
As always. The only bothersome thing is that my browser won't take me to a new page.

I'd rather have the pop-up thing... it just makes me more aware that somebody is trying to contact me.

I used to have it enabled, but then it got bothersome and I disabled it XD
It should be disabled on all my alts., too.
Just like how all the smilies in text are auto-disabled :)

I have the popup box enabled as well. Having knowledge of the title and who it's from excites me because of the "suspense" what the PM's content is. The pop-up box also grabs my attention right away. Sometimes, I let a notification sit for a little while, so it's nice to be able to know when I have an important PM.
November 6th, 2009, 03:39 PM
Um...Yeah, I think I do. I'm not sure.
November 6th, 2009, 04:13 PM
I only think so because i couldn't be bothered to turn it off.
Anyway it's a good pop up thing ^^
November 6th, 2009, 05:03 PM
Yes, otherwise I don't tend to notice them; I found it disabled by default on my account.

No, because I find all manners of pop-ups annoying, especially the "OK/Cancel" dialog boxes Windows likes to throw my way every three seconds:/
That and I usually notice new PM's anyway.
November 6th, 2009, 10:14 PM
I have it enabled. It's never really bothered me before.

I have kept mines enabled as well. It's the only way to immediately grab my attention right away when needed. Plus, I see who it is from directly as well as what the message may be about beforehand.
PMs don't come as often as VMs, so having one pop-up on the screen every once in awhile isn't so bothersome.
November 6th, 2009, 10:53 PM
I have it enabled, I don't get a lot of PMs. So, yeah..
November 6th, 2009, 10:53 PM
Yep. PMs are usually only urgent matters, especially since the advent of VMs, so I prefer to know about them right away.

Although I find a pop-up for a PM asking me to help with some random person's hack annoying, it is by no means the pop-up box's fault. I keep it enabled so I know when I get a PM, as it loads faster than having to click the "Notifications: 1" drop-down, and then select "Unread Private Messages - 1".
Plus, knowing who it is and what it is about right off of the bat is beneficial.

I've never enabled it at any forum I've been to, ever. I'm not a fan of pop-ups. Besides, with it popping up, it wouldn't make me check them any faster.
I'm actually kind of surprised so many people have it enabled, to be honest. It's a feature I forget about most of the time, since I don't use it. ._.

I have it enabled. My pop up blockers block it so it won't be too annoying
November 7th, 2009, 01:49 AM
I have it where it will pop-up, because it's a good way to alert you that you have a new PM, if I didn't have it enabled, I probably wouldn't notice that I have a new PM until later on. And I like the pop-up option xD

I always resolve my notifications promptly, so I have it disabled, since it just gets annoying.
November 7th, 2009, 02:04 AM
I don't have it enabled because I don't get notifications often enough where I won't notice if I get a new PM.
November 7th, 2009, 02:56 AM
I used to have it enabled, but I recently disabled it due to most of my PMs being random questions concerning a certain thread I created a couple years back... nothing too important often comes my way .
Besides, it's not like I don't check my PMs whenever I see them anyhow. I just have a bad habit of not replying to 'em for a while.

Like LeSabre, I get annoyed by pop ups, so I don't have it enabled. I can be able to find my PMs fine, since I don't get too many of those nowadays. XD

I have it disabled. The little bold number is noticeable enough
November 7th, 2009, 03:51 AM
Yep, I have it on. It gets my attention most of the time.
