    Admin,

    I know on the latest version of vbulletin you can view your pm's as a conversation.

    i.e. the person who pm'd you, their pm is directly below your reply so you can see what they have said instead of you trying to remember - kind of like an iphone text application

    Is this possible with your verision of VB?

    Would be mighty handy if you are trying to negotiate a sale.

    Thanks

    When you reply to a message the message you're replying to is automatically quoted, along with all past quotes. It's always been that way.

    When I have a PM conversation I always leave the quotes in and type my reply above. I'd forget the conversation otherwise. Everyone else I have PMd has done the same back to me too.

    Have you found otherwise mate?

    'Threaded' PMs can be done, but it's a hack/modification, and not vB standard code. I saw it but haven't given it a test as yet because as Staz's reply above, other than slightly different formatting, it doesn't seem to offer much over the standard 'quoting' of messages; and I'd much rather extra processing which is to be done on what is quite a busy server yield bigger benefits.

    I'll have a closer look at it this week and report back findings and opinions following a 'dry run'...

    Cheers,

    Rob.

    Mine quote but think the other way is much tidier looking and a lot of the time, people answer the questions inside the quote that you have just asked which messes up the brackets
