Default PERSONAL messages?? Where are they?? I'm tired of having to go through my email addy

Where in the sam hill can I click on my PMS and be able to reply?? Never had this problem with the old forum. I really hate this new improved format, there was nothing wrong with the old one. I've gotten notifications on my personal EMAIL about personal messages here. Why is that?? Why can I not click a spot here, read my PM, then click reply??
If I wasn't so involved with the Religious forum I'd just leave. CHARLIE.

Ya can Charlie.

Look right under the site logo to the right of the screen. It will be in green letters. Normally it will read PRIVATE MESSAGES but if anyone quotes one of your posts it will read differently. Clicking on it will take you to them and you can reply to them from there.

right now mine reads: Private Messages: Unread 0, Total 121.

I have no idea what program my browser is looking through, but for me, I have a banner GBO, then lower I have the file list that includes the "HOME" "FORUMS" "ACTIVE TOPICS" etc...
Then below that I have a line that says "Welcome, nanuk-o-dah-nort. You last visited: Yesterday at 06:14 AM Your Notifications 178 Subscriptions 17

YOUR NOTIFICATIONS is highlighted making it a "hyperlink". I click on the green highlight, and a drop down menu lists some access points, and also tells me how many of each I have...

Right there, under Your Notifications, is the link to Private Messages. See photo below.

For your own good, don't be "old and cantankerous" Charlie. Everything that we formerly did is available and more on the new site. In a month the "and more" part will be familiar, provided you give it a chance.

God help you if you ever have to convert from Windows 7 to Windows 10 or 11! You think that you are frustrated now? You ain't seen nothing yet.

Get a few more wrinkles in your brain now that GBO HAS BEEN SOLD and expanded its site characteristics. I KNOW you are trainable. Click around for a while. You cannot hurt the software! Try it!

The site certainly won't change back. Live with it, learn it, or...that last choice is always yours.

Sorry Charlie. I really don't mean to be to the Old (or new) Guys here. I'll probably settle down a little. My best friend took his own life this morning. I am pretty darn numb.

I don't know what was wrong with the old forum. This new format has given me nothing but trouble. Print lagging behind typing., sometimes so screwed up I have to give up trying to post. If I didn't have so many old friends here, I probably would have dropped GBO a long time ago.
Latest snafu; I type a reply and click onto "submit" and a pop-up comes on, saying GBO has failed to respond and I must click to reconnect to GBO. Messed me up for a while and lost some lengthy posts, but this morning I just Xed that message out and it seemed to work.
If some posts or messages go unanswered from me, it wasn't me just being rude.

I have had issues with print lagging behind typing. in my case it seems if I have too many windows open... I like to go through the recent discussions and the sub forums I like, selecting numerous threads... once I have 20-30 open, things REALLY get messed up.

as for LONG messages, I learned a long time ago to type them into WORD, or another message box and cut/paste them into the one I am going to send.

A poor workaround for a problem that shouldn't exist, but sometimes we gottadoo what we gottadoo
