Are private message alerts visible? Because there is a guy called happymonster and he came online days after I private messaged him and he did not respond at all. Please update it and make it more noticeable.

They are somewhat subtle. The way it looks when you've received a message is that at the top of the forum page, the text "My Messages" turns into "My Messages [1]" (or the number of unread messages you've received). Looking through my notification settings, I have "Notify by email every time you receive a personal message" set to "Always", but at some point a year or two ago I stopped getting the e-mails. Something might be broken.

That said, if someone hasn't replied to you, it doesn't necessarily mean they haven't seen your message. No one is obligated to reply to every communication they receive. Sometimes people take a long time to do it. When sending a message, you always need to accept the possibility that you won't get a reply.
