    I'm not asking for fireworks, dancing naked pornstars, or even a "you've got mail" deal, but I wish that when you receive a PM from somebody, it ought to be more obvious. It seems like I've missed several PM's because I was not aware of receiving any.

    You should turn on PM notification in your user control panel/profile. Then you'll see a popup box when you get a new PM. It can be quite annoying because it'll show up everytime you go to a new page. So be careful what you wish for...

    As an alternative, you can activate the option to receive notification by email whenever a new PM arrives.

    If you go to the User Control Panel > Edit Options and enable the Pop Up Box you will get a notice (unless you don't allow message pop up with your browser) but you will still see an animated HTF icon with the words "You have a private message!" just below the Home Theater Forum logo on the main page.

    Any hope for a dancing, naked chick instead? [​IMG]

    For large amounts of cash anything is possible.
