[spammed private messages] Deleting private messages

Post by a-h-k » Thu Oct 25, 2018 10:24 am

I hadn't checked this Web board in months. I have 7 private messages, all of which were spam. I marked all, then chose delete, then go. The private messages persist. I tried several times yesterday and today to get rid of them.

I tried again today. This time, I could delete all the spammed private messages. What's going on?

I haven't come across the problem myself. Always managed to get rid of the messages. Mind you, as a Moderator, when I removed spam on the board for that day, the notifications/messages were deleted along with them. You may have to PM Walton if the problem persists. Moderators do not have access to your personal messages, only admin can access that.

I found a control to turn off private messages. I'd prefer that users (not spammers of Web boards) post questions related to things I've posted on the web board anyway.
