Is there a "private messaging" option available on the SkydioPilots forum?
I messaged you that way this morning but full disclosure, the mods and admins can see anything posted within the forum. Trust me.
Do Not assume that Lon as we cannot see in messages. Please do not make false statements .I messaged you that way this morning but full disclosure, the mods and admins can see anything posted within the forum. Trust me.
So to answer your question, there's no truly "private" messaging on any forum that I'm aware of. If anyone ever wants to talk to me off forum, they can "PM" me here and I'll give you my email address.
I deleted the post. I was under the impression that the admin could see everything in the forum down to your personal info and passwords. Obviously, if I am mistaken, I happily retract the statement. I've often wanted to message members in private without fear of the mods or admin reading it. Thanks!Do Not assume that Lon as we cannot see in messages. Please do not make false statements .

Hahaha!Kinda explains why the message kept appearing, disappearing, reappearing.......thought I was imagining things.... sorry guys .... couldn't resist
Oh I wanted to point out that in Private Messaging, there's an option to allow other parties into the conversation. I'm not sure if both parties have to okay it, if the originator of the message has control or if either can allow it independently, but it's something to consider. I'm sure one of the mods can answer this easily.
Right, but can the person you message invite other people in without your prior consent? Let's say I private message someone, can they bring in a couple other people into the conversation? Is that possible, or will the forum seek my consent to to allow extra parties to read my private messages to an individual? Once they are allowed in, either through mutual consent or unilaterally, are they privy to the entirety of the conversation or only new messages going forward? If the second party can add others without my consent, how will I know if others are reading what I presume to be private messages? I did see that you can lock replies to the conversation, so that's nice.Already did tell him Lon.
Okay, I really wanted to understand exactly how this all works AND another member actually asked the original question, not me.You mean like I invited the other staff in the messages you sent me . Yes you can or you can lock it so no others can
But Lon you know all this so why keep on.
Eh it doesn't matter, I've eliminated the messages in the other forums I've sent so I should be good.Well Lon being this isn’t your thread and believe I gave the op his answer I will tell you if you have missed this at the bottom where you start a message there isn’t nothing I can tell you to understand .

Tell you what. Maybe start a message with me in mavic
and I can explain it better...oh wait. That won’t work will it.
Might be heading that way here if you continue with me.
Let’s not continue with this game Lon you already know
all of this. You have a good nite.
Ah poop! Well I selected all of the conversations and checked "leave conversations" after I did that, I checked ignore any future messages. I took that to mean that my parts were deleted.You can't do away with them but that don't matter as no one can see them except the ones that are in them.
Can't seem to get that through your head.
