Receiving emails via the board from other members

Recommended Posts


This may be old hat to many, but I just wanted to be sure that everyone understands that by allowing emails to be sent to you via the board (go in through My Controls and make sure that little square is NOT checked off), the sender will not be able to view your email address - however, you will be able to receive email from the sender...whose personal email will show up in your own home/office/school email inbox. From this point, it's your decision to reply or not. :)


Only full members (30 substantive posts and at least two weeks on the board.) will be able to access other member's profiles which is where you can see, by clicking on their name, if they have elected to receive either PMs or email via the board.

And I'll further emphasize that if you choose to SEND an email this way, your email address WILL BE VISIBLE to the recipient. It arrives just like any other email. If privacy is important to you, use the Private Messaging function.

To clarify, further in order to use this function you must be a full member:

When you first register at the site, you're a New Member, and remain so until you've made 30 substantive posts and have been here at least 2 weeks. The point of this is that, before someone can become a full Member, with all Member privileges, we want to be sure we know who you are, and we can pretty much tell within the first 30 posts whether someone is really interested in discussing ballet, or is here for another purpose.


A New Member can reply to posts, make new topics, edit your own posts, and vote in polls.


What a full Member can do:


1. Send private messages (to those eligible to receive them).


2. View member profiles. (We don't want people to register just so they can check out member profiles and try to find out information about you.)


3. Post new polls.


4.Send email messages to other full members, if the person has elected to allow this.


This information is available on the thread about the Complete Private Messanger.
