"You sent a private message to this user"



  • You can flag a post and send a private message to the post's author.

    Once you do that, you get this below the post:

    If you click that, you get something like this in its place:

    What's the point? Clicking the blue text doesn't do anything worthwhile.
    Shouldn't there be a link to the private message instead?

    i presume that possily since staff (and TL4) get to see flagging activity they might possibly see who PM'd from the flagging menu....

    still a WTF, but may explain the behavior if true.

    Yup. But it's as useful as it is to Zecc in that it does bugger all.



  • Staff only get a link if it's not their flag. So still a WTF - it's checking if you sent the PM. Any PM flags that they didn't cast, they get a link for.



  • That seems like the opposite of useful.
