A couple of questions for admin and/or the Mods

1. Can you please publish, somewhere, a list of Moderators as not everyone knows 'who you are'? The Moderators are no longer easily identifiable apart from their individual posts. Could their names be highlighted in the list of Members online for example, as in the past?

2. In the past, we could contact anyone who was online simply by clicking on their name in the list of (registered) members. However, this is no longer possible and, if any member is not on your 'Buddy List' we have to search for a message on the Boma from them to be able to send a PVT message. This is crazy - we should not (in my personal opinion!) have to put people on a Buddy list to be able to contact them easily! Everyone on Africam is my 'friend/buddy', and, as such, they do not need to be added to a Buddy list in order that I can talk to them!

3. The new symbol for locked topics is unclear. I am assuming that the symbol which appears to be a camera with a T in front of it indicates that the topic is locked?

Also, what is the symbol of an envelope with a red 'something' on it supposed to indicate please?

Many thanks from

Tabs, for sending private messages,

as Cerinthe said, you can still click on a member's name to send a pm to them just like before.

Or you can also go to 'private mail' in the left column and there you click on write a new message.

in the next window you will see To :

if you type in G there (for example) you will see a list of all the bomites who's usernames starts with a G, and you can select the member you want.

It's really use to use.

Hope that helps.

Gerda Smiling

You can still do that. If you go to Members Online and you click on a name you go to their profiles and from there you can PM whomever you need to talk to.

In Members List you go to the person and click on the word "view". That will take you to that particular person's profile.

You don't have to make a person a buddy to do that.

That is indeed the sign for a locked topic, but it's not a cam, but an old fashioned lock. You will have to look closer. The T is a keyhole.

It is a sticky, like the ones you pin onto your memoboard at home.
