Then i suggest to stop the PM Notifications. You are being notified of a new pm already.

Private Messages should remain as is. Members shouldn't have to dig through the UCP for quick access to Private Messages.
Agreed. Plus, you can see exactly how many unread (or new?) PMs you have there and people can use the link to write PMs to other people, too. It's not just for reading old PMs.

I also agree with hanakin that PMs shouldn't be part of the UCP, but that's another issue.

You can already do that in the UCP -- UCP -> Board preferences -> Edit notification options.

So two thumbs down to that. A little redundancy won't hurt. A little redundancy won't hurt. :D

I agree with DavidIQ here. It does not make much sense.

I agree, I'd rather the notification link be removed; PM's are more important.

Except when it's a notification of a PM. Then they are the same. That's the problem.

Somebody already said you can disable it in the UCP or in the Settings link of the Notifications panel so this discussion is kind of pointless. If you don't like the notifications about PMs then turn it off. It's that simple.
