I just clicked on User CP to change my sig. I noticed messages from people. I thought these must have been replies to posts I had made in various threads. I went to the threads but did not see these messages. I went back to the messages in my User CP. It is apparently the 'rep wall'. I had assumed that public messages sent to me were 'rep'.
Have I ignored a message from you, sent to the rep place? If so, it wasn't on purpose!!!
