If you receive a new PM look in the top right, the colors have changed to blue and orange. Nice job Brad :)

It might not work on Firefox. I'll look into that tomorrow.

I think you're right.

At work I use IE and it works but at home I use FireFox and it doesn't work :(

Well I am a firefox user but opened Internet Explorer briefly tonight to test out the new PM colour feature. It looks great, very nice. Good work Brad. :)

I wondered why I didn't see any change. I'm using firefox...I'm lost without my tabs and mouse gestures.

Like Ross, I have IE at work and FF at home too... I'm curious to know why FF doesn't like it - and how you'd get it to work, Brad.

The flashing thing was found on the vBulletin.org forum. The thing is, I can't even find where you change that dark grey that shows up for FF. It's not in the same code as the flashing part. I'll keep looking though. If anything I'll just have it be the bright orange for FF if I can figure out how to do it.

LOL, leave it to Ross to find a good use for it... he uses GD's PM system as his own personal notepad! :)

I do that with email all the time. But not normally with the GottaDeal.com PM system.

Noticed this just earlier today (haven't been around much). When I saw the flashing blue and orange, I thought perhaps it was a "more important" private message.

You are correct. The GottaDeal.com Forum software now uses "SmartFiltering" which analyzes each private message sent to you and ranks it from 1-10 as to it's relevancy. Those that the system feels are not that important, are nothing but incoherent babbling or are just plain boring are discarded, never to bother you again :P Another great feature from GottaDeal.com :D

I like the colors in IE, but I use Firefox on a daily basis and missed a PM from a member today till 5pm today because I didn't look closely enough at the PM box. . . . (It's hard to read in Firefox)
Any luck on this. . .

Thanks,
