Not my fault you didn't have the "Alert me via pop-up whenever I receive a new PM" option on.  I just turned it on for you

This reminds me of some detergent commercial ad or something...

But yeah, small things do matter the most actually...

Hey flab, one quick question. Looking at the top of my screen now (and seeing I have 0 Personal Messages) should the text be orange? Or should it only turn orange when I receive one or greater PM's? Thanks for the help bud!

if only it had glitter *sigh*

Actually, that is a color you guys should use more often, like stickies or in the news section.

It should only be orange when you have a new PM.  Can you do me a favor and take a screenshot of it being orange while you have 0 new PMs?

Even though this make it more noticeable, I have the "Alert me via pop-up when I receive a new PM" options enabled, so it honestly doesn't affect me. Good work, though.

yeah, I use that too, but I know that if I'm coming to the forums specifically to post something or check up on a thread I got an e-mail alter/reminder about, then I'll ignore the popup until I'm done with whatever I came here to do.  When I do that, I sometimes forget about the PMs, and the red link would help me notice them again.  I think that is similar to the logic of whoever originally suggested this.

Oh, it isn't orange currently with 0 PM's, I was just asking if it should be or if it should be that chill blue color like from before. I was mixed up a bit haha. Thanks for the answer to my question :D

Just bumping to say thank you.  Your simple color change is actually helping out quite a bit.  Now PMs don't stack up when I least expect it.
