communication is poor at the moment you can see that you have a personal message only when you log in to the forum, I rarely enter here, is there any way for the recipient to receive any kind ''Alert'' in the game that there is a personal message?(not to mention that some players I guess don't even have a forum account)

Yeah this is a hot topic @darki, we already discussed it many times trying to figure out how to do it. Unfortunately the api doesn't support reading private messages at the moment, otherwise Dark would have integrated it long ago!

However @Darkmyre, just read the api docs quickly and something popped in, to be able to at least know when someone has a message could have a possible workaround.
When you get a message, you get a notification in the forum too. And there is a get command (https://invisioncommunity.com/developers/rest-api?endpoint=core/members/GETitem_notifications) supposed to read the notification, and it's type etc.
You could theoretically read the notifications, check for what triggered it, and if it's a message, then show the notification ingame.
What do you think?

Yep, we should be able to implement something with this. Annoyingly the API returns *all* the notifications, even read ones, but should be able to filter them down to relevant ones.

So unfortunately, DM's don't actually trigger notifications in any way, even with all the notification settings turned on. And there's no way via the API to fetch anything related to DM's, only endpoints to post a new DM to a user.

I found a partial solution to the problem 😀 I write in military orders : Hello ''X'' please enter the forum you have a private message 😀

Of course, this only applies to those who are enrolled in the military base (if they read/see the orders) 😂
