Turn and face the strain (what does that mean btw?)

Anyway, I digress...

So we are about to release two new thangs for your enjoyment and delectation.

1. Private messaging (PM). You can now PM other Mumsnetters (if you're logged in, you'll see your spanky new Inbox at the top of your browser page, next to "Welcome to Mumsnet"). This replaces the CAT service we've had up to now but, as it's FREE, we hope you won't mind too much! It operates much like any other PM service and you can read more about it here. Do post any questions/feedback/squeals of delight on this thread and please do let us know if anything is unclear or doesn't work right.

2. Off the beaten track topic. This is a new Talk topic, intended for conversations of a private, sensitive or top-secret smile nature. Discussion threads in this topic won't be visible to Google and will be automatically removed from the topic (and our archives) after 30 days (from the date of the OP). They won't appear in Active discussions either - but will be visible to other MN members (who are logged in).

We hope you'll find this topic useful. Our feeling was that it might be helpful to have somewhere to post that was a wee bit less public, but not entirely private.

Again, please let us know about any glitches on anything else that's on your mind.

HecateQueenOfWitches Tue 21-Sep-10 14:54:25

oh, and there's no pm box next to welcome to mumsnet. it's logout, about us and print.

when does it start? And do you see all pms in the same way as you see CAT messages now?

omnishambles Tue 21-Sep-10 14:54:33

Tortington Tue 21-Sep-10 14:54:55

We're just waiting for Gerry to find a new power cord, or something.

Meanwhile, enjoy this:

HecateQueenOfWitches Tue 21-Sep-10 15:00:04

I know. I don't think they should be allowed to tease us like this grin

HooNose Tue 21-Sep-10 15:00:50

Are you still holding caller?

That has aged me blush

HecateQueenOfWitches Tue 21-Sep-10 15:02:07

$searchtype.size() discussions have messages.

Get it together, Tech!! grin

HooNose Tue 21-Sep-10 15:02:08

Oo "inbox" has turned up! smile

So, what is supposed to happen when you click on it? I get an error message.

HecateQueenOfWitches Tue 21-Sep-10 15:03:34

I wish Tech would not work while on the sauce. wink

Tee2072 Tue 21-Sep-10 15:03:41

Tee2072 Tue 21-Sep-10 15:04:01

Tee2072 Tue 21-Sep-10 15:04:29

However, Threads I'm On is blank........

frakkinnakkered Tue 21-Sep-10 15:05:11

Ditto both inbox error and threads I'm on.

JustineMumsnet (MNHQ) Tue 21-Sep-10 15:05:36

Ah yes, good point, well made - we are, as they say, working on it!

oopsandbabycoconuts Tue 21-Sep-10 15:05:39

YetMoreTech (MNHQ) Tue 21-Sep-10 15:07:11

TomTech is just releasing all the changes now. As soon as that's done, it will all be lovely.
