Pings and Dings


Some of the users of my message board have told me that when they submit a reply to a message, they get a 'ping' or 'ding' message coming up. I dont remember experiencing this myself though. Can anyone enlighten me on what the pings and dings mean? Are they just pings between the server and user?

When you initially post you should get a message that says something like: Ping! posting this message has granted you membership.

And you also get one when you increase to the next level in Custom User Titles

(or if you changed them and this is the first time the user has posted since the change and the Custom title is being updated)

Ah, yes, some people have speculated this. Thank you both for answering.

Re: Pings and Dings


When you post at runboard, sometimes - like those explained above - you see a page where the word "Ding!" appears in addition to another message.

Generally a ping is something different: it is a test that shows whether another computer is online and can be reached.
