    I can't reply to a private mail...or at least I can't figure out how to. I have to forward and enter the handle of the person I would like to reply to.

    Also, when I follow the link from the notifcation email that I have a private mail, it deadends me somehow. I have to go to "home" and then click on private mail. I don't remember right now, but I think it takes me to my mailbox but tells me that I don't have mail or I'm not logged in or something, but when I navigate around it, I find the mail.

    The second one is not a particular concern to me and I realize it could be trickier to fix, but not being able to reply seems like a good one to fix.

    No big deal to me, of course, I appreciate how great TalkBass is, but thought you might want the QA.

    Troy,

    To reply to a PM, click the "quote" botton near the bottom right of the message :) I'm not sure what's causing the second problem - perhaps you're viewing a cached copy of the webpage - try hitting your browser's refresh button the next time you're greeted with an empty PM box via the notification link.

    It's not a popup, so I have no idea why it would...

    Exactly. No big deal, but worth mentioning if you are soliciting QA help.

    On the reply to a PM, you're right I can use the "quote" button. I didn't really think of that, it's usually an option and is easier that forward and readdressing like I was doing. I might suggest that it's a bit of a usability issue and maybe not the most intuitive, but not a problem for me now that I'm thinking workaround.

    Thanks,
