Hello SpellsnSuch,

The private messaging function of the forum no longer exists. If you have any questions regarding Lucky Mojo products and their uses, please feel free to ask these questions on the forum :)
Thank you saints and spirits!

Due to many problems of private messaging including:

* People soliciting forum members for paid readings and/or spellwork
* People seeking free magical coaching from Moderators
* People harassing Moderators

the Private messaging service has been removed.

This has been a decision long in the making, not undertaken lightly, but obviously necessary. Folks who know one another can use any of the public social media messaging services -- and many other public forums on a variety of topics no longer provide private messaging services, for the same reasons we have discontinued ours, namely because forum messaging has increasingly become a way for strangers to intrude themselves into peoples' lives.

Hi Cat, Can you email other registered people here? I don't know how. I don't know anything about the forums except how to post, and how to look up general topics. Sorry for the ignorance, or if I'm asking in the wrong place. Anything you say is very much appreciated. I love LM, I Found it a little less than a year ago, and I loved every parcel I recieved, and answer I've gotten here, and all I have learned by the generous amount of education you give out on your main site and forum, and would not want to be disrespectful! I never used PM but that is such a shame what happened. I'm sorry but I am new here, I do post things on a more regular basis now, but I find you learn rules here by being active. So, if I asked about how to email someone in the wrong place, I can learn it was not correct, and know and not make the same mistake. Then, I'll know the correct place to ask! Anyhow, Thanks.

I just sent an email to the administrator about PM's and avatars, and I just wanted to say "Sorry!" and please ignore the PM part!

When I joined the forums, I receive a notification that I had a PM from nagasiva kindly welcoming me, but when I went to click on it, nothing happened. Now, I'm thinking that's probably just a nice automated message, but understand that the error's happening because you had to disable the feature.

Thank you, and please ignore me! ;)

Thanks for mentioning this. Yes, we had to disable the PM system due to widespread abuse from scamming con-artists joining the forum and then sending messages to people in distress, promising to cure them of diseases or bring their lovers back in 24 hours. Because the PM system was private (as advertised) we could not see this happening until people began complaining, and when they did, we shut it down.

However, I do wonder what happened to the auto-welcome message you should have gotten from nagasiva! We recently upgraded the forum software and a few modifications we had made to the basic application went missing. I will get with nagasiva and we will make some test-joins and see what happens. Thanks for bringing this to our attention. We are always grateful for feedback on the site's functionality.

FiachnaRose,

The auto-response message that you pointed out is definitely a bug because it is a hold-over from previous versions we had in which the PM system was activated. We are working on this.

In the meantime, there is the FAQ,and we have re-instituted the "Rules" page which got dropped out in the upgrade -- and it does function as an introduction to the Forum.

I noticed that you specified a remote location for your avatar. You seem to be tech-savvy, and, if that is the case, it would be appreciated if you insert that photo in the frame for your ranking badge. (You are a Forum Member). Normally it is not my plan to ask members to tend to their own images in this way, but we are still working through thousands of members, checking on their rankings, avatars and badges, and we can use any help given. If this is not within your wheelhouse, just let me know and it will be fixed when we get to it.

Thanks.
