I really liked when we could see what new bulletins we had.  Is this not happening with the new format?

Hi,

If you click on the "Messages" link, you will see if you have any unread Bulletins, down at the bottom.

But  you arent' going to get a "1" next to the messages shortcut at the top I guess is what my question was

No, a one won't be displayed.  We think that would probably be a little too "in your face" with the bulletins.  We wanted to make them noticeable, but not too obtrusive.

But not everyone gets PMs on a daily basis.  My concern is a lot of bulletin are going go unread simply because people don't know they have them.

Yep my thoughts exactly. When we had the new bulletin notification I noticed more "traffic" in my groups the days I sent them out. I'm sad that we don't have that any more as a GO. :(

That happened to my groups, too.  This especially hurts in my own group because it was slow to being with.

 I completely agree.  I really like the old way better where it always showed you what you have not read.  The numbers were small so they were not a problem, however, they were a constant reminder if you had some.

If you didn't want to see them, they could easily have been ignored.  Now, I don't even know if I have a bulletin I need to read.  When I have a message or invite, I might click into it and see it but then want to come back to reply a little later but then I forget about it until I go in there again for some reason then I see it again and am bothered that I hadn't gotten backt to it yet.

I'm just not that fond of the new format.

I agree.  I can go a week or more without a PM and I'm rarely on my homepage, so I'm missing bulletins, now.
