I’ve encountered the following quite a few times:
- Find a forum I like; start reading a few topics.
- Land on a topic that I’d like to respond to, so I register
- After registration I’m redirected back to the topic that I wanted to engage with, but then I get disrupted by our intro-PM:
I already had an action in mind, but now I’m being very strictly instructed to do something else first. More often than not, this has caused me to completely lose my train of thought, and I already know all about this PM and its contents!
To avoid this, how about an exception to the strong PM notification:
IF user is already in a topic upon first-login, THEN don’t apply the first-PM overlay.
(Sorry about the convoluted title. Feel free to rewrite it if you can come up with something better.)
