Thanks for that. I just have to sit back and wait for a PM now.

Good news. It worked. The other piece of good news is that the size of the 'Tending' notification stays the same, that does not increase like the PM notification does.

Hoogo,

I agree with you and dont feel PMs always need to be treated as urgent but since others are concerned about the notification size I thought I would show there was a way around the issue without depending on TA doing something.

The same technique could also be used to shrink or hide the Reply button in forum posts and I might look at reducing the impact of the new hotel comparison bar (just need more time to play)

Hoogo,

One of the matters I deal with by PMs now are related to the protests in downtown Kyiv that put some barriers to getting around downtown. Travellers arriving to Kyiv shortly send me their addresses to ask about transportation or safety etc. It’s completely understandable when they don’t want to post their addressed or other personal details in the web.

Since they are about to arrive shortly, I for one consider this urgent, especially given that there are no other Kyiv DEs and no other people who regularly check the city to be able to update based on personal experience not rumours or google.

And once again.

Each DE has their own understanding of “commitment”. Unlike some others I’m not trying to impose my way as the only right one. But I stick to it, and as long as TA changes don’t help me in my regular contributions I feel completely entitled to let TA know about it. And this forum is precisely for suggestions on how to make *TA better*. Not how we should “improve” our TA browsing habits (there's the Support forum for this).

Mymsman::

My PM notification has reverted back to the normal size now I have checked everything and the TA NewMessage style is still ticked. Any ideas?

Try replacing the style with

.fall_2013_masthead_refresh .header_refresh #USER_PREFS li .link .newMessages:before { content: "Messages: "; width: 7em;}

.fall_2013_masthead_refresh .header_refresh #USER_PREFS li .link .newMessages {top:-0.3em; font-size: inherit; width: 7em; }

Which should give you "Messages: 1" rather than just a huge number

It is not clear with the line wrapping but it should be two lines that start .fall_2013...

It seems the PM notification adaptation has disappeared again, returning to the small orange square with the small number within it. Sob! Is this the same for everyone else? Could we call on mymsman to have a look at his convenience?

MuftiVancouver:

That's true. I tried Mymsman later suggestion but it didn't increase the size of the font, just changed it to 'Messages' with only 'Me' showing, so I deleted that and now have to manage with how it was originally.
