If you haven't been getting PMs from fellow Golden Skaters in your email, look in your GS "in box." It's in the upper right hand corner of the GS Forum main page. You must have your "in box" enabled to send and receive messages (go to account preferences). You may have to do this again, even if you formerly had your PM service on.
Also in your "in box" you will see "7.2 release notes," which explains about this. One improvement -- they included a patch to a loophole that formerly prevented local users from sending PMs to global users.
So if you have been having trouble sending or receiving personal messages in the past, this is supposed to correct the problem, while at the same time not cluttering up your regular email (all those viagra ads -- or am I the only one who gets these all the time? :lol: ) with figure skating messages.
