Topic: Changes to Premium Memberships in regards to Private Messaging / IM Chat
Posted: 05 Jul 2015 05:57

Hey Nicola - just wanted to mention that the chat boxes dont seem to be working. commodoreben (who's a subscriber) sent me a chat request, and it led to a message that says it is only available for premium members.

On a separate note, are "online messages" (IMs?) now only applicable if the user is on our friend list?

Lush mail (PMs) work though.


I've asked Gav to take a look. Thanks for letting me know.

Your galleries should all remain in tact. You just won't be able to add any images.

This is being discussed currently.

I'll let you know if we decide something different.

Despite Gilrenard's excellent effort at the 11th hour, and Liz's wonderful photoshop work, it is with great delight that I announce SereneProdigy's video to be the winning entry to this competition. thatshot

Excellent job SP, you absolutely nailed the brief and surpassed my expectations.

A big thank you to all the entrants. That was fun.
