How does the PM work?  Do you click on contact and the person's name?  Can someone let me know.  I would appreciate it.  Thanks.
Posted by Marie F


Hi Marie,  You can Private Message in three ways, from another baker’s post in the forums, from another bakers profile page, or from your own profile page if you are following that baker.  Just click on send message and your ready to go.  If you have any other questions feel free to ask.

I am happy about the text and font changes. I was getting a bad headache every night trying to read thru here. Now that we have our PM back, when do we get swapped recipes back?????? I know there were several thousand on the old site and they definitely are not on this new one.
Posted by Wa-Ha K


Hi Wa Ha, most of the swapped recipes are still on the site.  Try doing a search for Community Classics, you will see a brown circle next to the recipe that says VBB Baker Recipe.  I hope this helps, and keep in mind we are continually working on improvements.

Is there a way to tell we have a private message without opening our VBB page??? We need something next to the top of these pages to show us there is a message. I bet most of the forum users are like me and SELDOM open their VBB page. The old boards had a column at the top of the forum page with all sorts of info in it and it showed "New PM" when we had one.

Also, what is the "Perma Link" icon for?

Again I give VBB accolades for changing the web site and keeping us updated on the new changes. I have another concern about "brownie points"-I looged on a few minutes ago and lost almost 30,000 points; it has happened in the past and I realize that they will eventually return but why does this keep happening-any explanation for us who keep losing points?

Hi Wa-Ha,  as of right now you need to open your VBB page to see if you have any messages waiting for you.  Keep in mind we are listening and making improvements daily.  Also regarding Perma Link, A permalink is a URL that links to a specific news story or Web posting. Permalinks are most commonly used for blogs, which are frequently changed and updated. They give a specific Web address to each posting, allowing blog entries to be bookmarked by visitors or linked to from other websites.

Hi Diane,  VBB actually runs off of several different servers.  When your points disappear that just means you are hitting a different server at that time.  That is why your points always return.  We are working on correcting this, but for now just know the points do come back.

Thanks for letting me know what happens. Now I will not be as concerned as I was. I appreciate the time you took to answer me and anyone else who was wonderinghat happens to the "disappearing" points.

VBB:  I apppreciate having PM's back (Even) if I remember to  look there might not be any.I feel that is often a wastse of time; if you could bring backor add a notifying sign of new Pm's  that would eliminate us looking for no real reason.The process of   looking is slow to work & that may be beause folks are checking for messages they might not even have!
