That concerns me.
Are we running a forum(s), or a chat show.

It is a weak link in our security that is easily exploited by those trying to con sellers and part hunters.

'Hi, just joined an I have that part.....'

See AG Jeff reply at post 8.


On the plus side: A welcome move for Dark Mode.

They can only reply to a convo that you sent, they can not send out new PM.


Gonna pivot on this one a bit after reviewing with the Product team.

We are going to allow New Users without a post to be able to reply to a Private Conversation if they are sent one.

If we allow them to send a PC/PM to Mods/Admins they can get around the rule and invite others to the PC/PM to exploit security if we allow them to PC/PM Admins directly.
It is to fix this issue when you send a new user a PM:

Really looking forward to this one, but it’s hard to beat the ACP description fix.

Some good stuff there, was a little concerned about reply with no post number but Jeffs explanation cleared that up.

Hey all,

We've noticed a bug related to the shimmer load for images. As such we've decided to pull it from this global release. We're actively working to resolve it and will try to include it in the next release. I've update the notes above to reflect this change as well.

Please let me know if you have any questions!
Is this why I'm seeing images that are just blank white/gray pulsing boxes?
