New Community Updates - PMs and Comment Threading

Hey everyone, 

As @Sam_AMD recently mentioned in his SOTC blog post, we're working on optimizing our community to make it as easy and intuitive as possible for everyone to use. With that, we have a few fun new updates for you! 


Private Messages 

  • The Private Message layout has been updated. All Private Messages moving forward will show in one place where you can read a conversation overall, instead of individually. Please note that this does not update old conversations prior to this update - only to new messages moving forward.  


Comment Threading 

  • Instead of replying to comments within an entire thread, you can now respond to individual comments on a post! Just hit reply on the comment you want to respond to and ta-da, you will now see your comment threaded instead of showing as a new comment to the post overall.


Hope you enjoy these updates as much as we do, cheers! ๐Ÿ™‚

Hey Sam; have you lost some weight?

I like the changes.  Let's see if I can make them work for me.  


As Albert Einstein said, "I could have done so much more with a Big Al's Computer!".

I searched sporadically for the hidden pumpkins for perhaps 3 hrs.  Never found a single one.  Sure hope you had better luck.  



Loving all the continuous updates to the community!

How do I enable private messaging? I do not see the message count or envelope icon and I haven't been able to find where to enable it in my settings.

Hey @soullodolo , 

Here's the steps to turn on Private Messages ๐Ÿ™‚ 

  1. Go to My Settings
  2. Select Preferences 
  3. Go to the Private Messenger Tab 
  4. Check "Turn on Private Messages" 
  5. Select Save 

And you should be able to send/receive private messages. Holler if you have any other questions! ๐Ÿ™‚ 


I don't see the Private Messenger Tab though

Hey @soullodolo, that's strange! I went ahead and adjusted some settings for your account on the backend. 

Let me know if you see that option now! ๐Ÿ™‚ 


Yes I see the tab now and Private Messenger is already enabled, thank you!

Hi, I am also having the same issue. Screenshot 2023-02-12 223612.png


I go to My Settings and select PREFERENCES tab but no no PRIVATE MESSENGER TAB shows up anywhere.  I couldn't find any pumpkins either so now you know what your dealing with Amber, an old fart!๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜ƒ


I am having the same problem. Private Messenger is unavailable.ๅพฎไฟกๆˆชๅ›พ_20221126205807.png


Hey @GongTian , that's strange! I adjusted your profile on the backend to enable private messages. Let me know if you still can't see them ๐Ÿ™‚ 


I can see it right now! Thanks for your help!


Hey @Vynski , No problem at all! I adjusted your profile to enable private messages. Let me know if you have any other issues - happy to help ๐Ÿ™‚ 


Thanks Amber.  Now refresh my memory; what does private messages allow me to do?

No problem at all! Private messages will allow you to PM other members who have the option turned on. So if you wanna have a side conversation with an individual outside of the discussion boards, you can! I'll send you one as test so you can see ๐Ÿ™‚

Having the same Issue, no pm option available. 


Sign in.  At the very top right hand corner you will see a notification bell, an envelope, and your avatar.  Click the Avatar and select the PREFERENCES tab.  Then select the PRIVATE MESSAGES tab and check the box to enable you to receive them.  Next time you log in you will be able to see how many private messages have been sent and open them by clicking the ENVELOPE icon.

Sorry I left out 1 step.  MY PREFERENCES is in the SETTINGS option so select the SETTINGS after clicking the AVATAR.

hello, sorry to bother you but i have same issue i can't see any "private messages" tab


same lol

Hi @YourLocalRyzen777 , @ahmad-hardy , and @Anonymous - sorry to hear you're having issues locating the private message settings! I went ahead and turned on PMs for you -  if you go to your settings tab as @Vynski explained - you should see some options there now ๐Ÿ™‚ Let me know if you have any other issues!

I have the Automatically subscribe box also checked.  You should have Private Messenger listed as an option.  It will be listed between the Privacy and Likes options.  If checking that box doesn't help I would recommend that you reply to @amber for help.  She will check out your account and change settings if they need be.  She has done things like that for me.

Having a similar Issue, no pm choice accessible.


Hi @meer8 , I went ahead and adjusted the settings on your profile so now you should see PMs as an option to configure within your profile settings. Feel free to reach out with any questions! ๐Ÿ™‚

hello, i have a question:

how do i send PM's ? someone tried to send me PM but it says "you haven't enabled your PM Option yet" so how do i enable it? 


Hey @ahmad-hardy , I responded to you above ๐Ÿ™‚ Let me know if you have any issues! You should see the option within your profile settings now. 

I was just getting ready to post a reply explaining how to turn on PM's.  Like so many things about computers that I have forgotten, I Forgot how to turn on PN's off the top of my head and had to go back and see how I did that. ๐Ÿค” lol
