It seems that the link to the Messaging system on the website was never implemented. You can message individuals and they can reply, but there is no easy way to get to the Messaging main page. There are a couple work-arounds, but they’re pretty kludgy.
I figured that this would be a fairly easy fix, but maybe Aptera isn’t aware of the issue yet?
There’s a lot of little bugs, and they can vary from person to person. I don’t get any notifications at all, nor do I see a page for entering preferences for them. Oh look, the editing function just came back for me.
Perhaps Aptera does not want that function implemented in the forum as a way to reduce extraneous messaging. After all, this is a forum for posting not an external/internal messaging system that would require much more monitoring by scarce staff at a time when all should be focused on advancing the engineered prototypes.
With the current Forum format there is ample opportunity for Aptera enthusiasts to express opinions or ask questions
I’ve had conversations with other members which were not of public interest. The only difficulty is that you have to use one of a number of work-around methods in order to get to the Messaging main page, or go back to a previous conversation. The functionality exists, and there is no need for ‘monitoring’ private conversations between members.
