    Private Message system

    [BLUE=http://diablo.incgamers.com/forums/member.php?u=330494]Is there two different PM systems on each account?
    I have a member/messages/inbox/
    and a standard vB setup.


    While posting in this section, I see titles like dii.net member, diii.net member; is there a difference? Perhaps this has been asked.

    And I created a signature under the 'faux' cp, but it isn't showing up.

    One more thing; I didn't know if it is a taboo or anything to use this markup, BLUE, but it was a given option so I used it.[/BLUE]

    The Blue posting option is from quotes by Blizzard posters on The Battle.net Forums, like Bashiok or Gfrazier for example. It's best to reserve the use of the Blue Post feature for those things.

    Aside from that, there's no difference between the user titles with the PM system. You will notice that we have many different titles, some can be gotten through the Pal system while others may have come from the older Pal system (We're on the third one now) and still others can only be granted by the admins.

    You can donate and become a Pal here if you wish: http://diablo.incgamers.com/forums/payments.php

    Standard members don't have access to Signatures. You need to be a PAl or better to have a sig.

    There is no faux CP, do you mean User CP?

    Also, we only have one PM system. By chance are you talking about the visitor messages feature associated with the member profile area?

    *Denotes a message system that seems to be on the basic vB CP.

    And Gorny, don't think I'm calling you a liar or anything, I'm really just curious what the purpose of these features are.

    Re: Private Message system

    Private messaging helps people contact other members outside of normal forum messaging. Messages in profiles are public, a wall if you will. Edit signature is for those who have access to the signature feature (PALS) to add or change their signature.

    Beyond that perhaps vbulletin can help you more on the integration of the features in their software.

    It looks like one is for the forum and the other for the website (comments, new post, etc). I'd say the website side initially inherited alot of accounts from the forum when everything was configured (at least it looks that way).
