PM notifications being emailed to me

I have always had my PMs emailed to me. If I need to find info from a past pm, like to get someones shipping address quickly without searching through my pms, I usually enter a detail I remember from the PM into my email search box and it brings up the email with the correct pm in it quickly.

Lately I am noticing that I'm only getting a notification that a pm was sent from someone but it doesn't have the original message from them. I didn't change my settings to have it stop sending the message too. Has diaperswappers stopped sending the message along with the notification?

I was trying to look up an amazon code I traded for a few weeks ago and it looks like I accidentally deleted the PM with the code. Usually this wouldn't be a problem if the message were included with the email I got when the pm was sent to me.... anyone know if something has changed with this?

I only get the email stating I have a PM, and not the message. I didn't see an option to adjust it otherwise.

Yes, the mods changed it..Rather than get the message with the e-mail notification, we just get the and e-mail notifying us we have a PM. They were having a problem with too many people responding to the e-mails that had the message in them. There's a thread in this forum about it!! HTH

Thanks for the link. I wish they would leave it as an option that we could choose in our profile settings. That way they could set it to default so most people are only getting the notification but those who want to see the message in their email can choose.

I think people need to be aware it was not mods who changed this

Just reiterating, the mods/admin did not change this. The site owner did.

Is there an official thread where this change was explained by the administrator/owner/mods? Was there a warning before they started doing this?
