We don’t have pm-ing so…the best solution I could come up with has been posted here: http://www.beautyheaven.com.au/forums/talkback/personal-messages-via-the-forum-suggestion?

  • If you wanted to ask me something about a review I’ve written;
  • If you want to respond to a comment I made on an article;
  • If you wanted to ask me something about a forum post I’ve made & you can’t remember which thread it was on;
  • If you made a comment on the forum & I haven’t answered you (I probably haven’t seen it);

Look for me by username on the search bar, this thread will show in the results. Post your question here & I’ll get a notification in my Messages.

Start your own thread containing your username & post the link here, so you’ll get a notification in your Messages when I respond.

(Hint: if you start a thread containing your username, every forumite will be able to find it on the search bar.)

I’ll delete this thread, or allow it to fall into disuse if we ever get proper pm-ing.

Remember: this isn’t “private” messaging. Every forumite & lurker can see what you post here.

    @Misfortune8, how did you manage to tag with @ successfully people who have BH name in separate words (for example saw you did this with @Shop A Everyday). I can’t and have tried couple of things. Help!

    Thank you 🙂

    Oh, and can not wait to see photo of your RR parcels! My gosh, hope all that we ordered is in stock and no hickups. Loved this format of shopping, even though products were on separate pages if having too many on wishlist. I know that some need selection for sizing and points, but for me it was super easy to tick and add to chart everything I wanted all at once, as I have simple one sized products to get and got no makeup/haircolours. This means speedy shopping , less chance to miss out on goodies which are very low stock.

    Did you notice point delay update on our profiles? It will get chaotic for new members! Or those who didn’t do calculations in advance. Maaate! What a mess xD

    • In a nutshell, I’ve memorised how it would appear in the reply box if I’d used the L͟i͟n͟k͟ tab to format their profile page’s URL.

      The formatting has < & > & h ref & so on.

      Every member’s profile page starts as h t t p s (colon) // w w w dot beautyheaven dot com dot au/user/ then the member’s username in lower case, with words separated by a + & ending with a solidus/
      E.g. shop+a+everyday/

      I type so quickly that it’s not a chore, but if you’re on smartphone, there’s no easy way that I know of.

      I hope that makes sense, @Yohanna.

      [EDIT] I type at over 70 words per minute. That’s not a very helpful solution for you though. Unless you opened their profile page & copy/pasted the URL & used the L͟i͟n͟k͟ tab. Time-consuming.

    • I can’t seem to tell you how to do multiple-word usernames without getting an error message, @Yohanna. I’ll have to think about how to reword it simply.

      With the RR, for me, it was glitchy AF.

      Yeah, the points updating is slow. I had 3400 points, I spent 3040, yet my current tally shows 3398! WTF?

      • 1 w ago

        Thank you @Misfortune8 will try using Link feature and play with it now.

        I predict RR chaos: stock and point issues (with stock update delay and people overspending over their point value because of this delay as well, getting into minus).

      • Yes, members’ points could go negative, or they could miss out on something they most wanted if the item gets cancelled to prevent a points deficit. Or, they might be disappointed when they receive a different colour from what they were expecting. The makeup items show the product’s stock image, e.g. Max Factor lipstick had a red pic, but the colour in the RR was rose nude.

    So weird. I see on latest, when clicking on “forum” banner up the top, your comments for the new thread you created. But then I click on it to read full comment and get:

    Oops! That page can’t be found.

    This is for example what I see on latest , but after clicking….nada, zilch!

    I can’t seem to even post 2 links at a time, so this is going to take a while doing them individually. Community-type threads… See full post

    in topic: Forumites’ Favourite Threads

    • 3 wks, 5 days ago

      There have been SO many problems with that thread, Yoh. I’ve just been composing an email to Bh about it. I’ve noticed that it never appears in the “Recent Topics” or “Recent Replies” feed. & the URL’s dodgy, too! It was pending moderation for 4 days & never appeared in “Latest Topics”.

      I tried to post links to a heap of commonly-used threads, but I get error messages when I try to post there. That thread is of no use to anybody in its current state!

      Thanks for your feedback: I’ll include that info in my email.

    • 3 wks, 5 days ago

      Can’t screenshot….duh. No image posting possible yet. How come forum thread shows up on “latest activity” but not in forum topics or threads? And can not access it!

  • 3 wks, 5 days ago

    You had me going for a bit M8! I thought you cracked the shi** til I saw the quote! You are def not funny like a clown…CLOWNS ARE TERRIFYING!!!!

    • 3 wks, 5 days ago

      Haha, Frenchy! No, I didn’t crack a sh–!

      Goodfellas is one of the best gangster movies ever made. Def one of my faves of all time.

      I’m with you on the clowns!

  • 3 wks, 5 days ago

    Hi, I had a review published twice and emailed Eleni about it. Hopefully they will be able to fix it.

  • 3 wks, 6 days ago

    Oh you haha!

    I was about to add some suggestions!

    Can’t go past a bit of funk rock:
    David Bowie – Let’s Dance, Ashes To Ashes etc
    Talking Heads – Burning Down The House, Life During Wartime, Psychokiller, Once In A Lifetime etc
    Blondie – Rapture is always a funky one
    Re-Flex – The Politics of Dancing

    New Romantic (basically the entire catalog of Brat Pack movie soundtracks):
    Simple Minds, Adam Ant/Adam & The Ants, The Psychedelic Furs, Visage, Ultravox, (could argue these bands are new wave/synthpop, but check out what I wrote below)

    Post Punk (aka Trad Goth):
    Anything by The Cure, Joy Division, Killing Joke, Siouxsie & The Banshees, Bauhaus/Peter Murphy, The Cult etc

    Classic Synthpop/New Wave:
    Yazoo, Blancmange, Talk Talk, Gary Numan, Bananarama, Visage, Sigue Sigue Sputnik, Devo, Bronski Beat, Peter Schilling (no relation lol), ABC, Tears For Fears (their new single is amazing!!!), Mi-Sex, After The Fire, Pet Shop Boys, A Flock of Seagulls, Underworld (before they became techno in the 90s), Kajagoogoo/Limahl, The Human League, Soft Cell, Depeche Mode, Eurythmics/Annie Lennox, New Order, Roxette, Yello, Duran Duran, Thomas Dolby, there’s probably way more that I don’t listen to lol.

    • 3 wks, 5 days ago

      Yay! Some old faves there!

    • 3 wks, 6 days ago

      Want to add some hard core Violent Femmes (saw them live at La Trobe Uni during my BA days.) Also loved PIL, The Sex Pistols and The Birthday Party. I was a Gothic Punk! Saw New Order and The Damned live around that time in Melbourne. Best years of my life!

      • 1 w ago

        I love The Birthday Party, Lydia Lunch, Television and Rowland S Howard (RIP). X is amazing as is Carter USM!

      • 3 wks, 6 days ago

        Great list! I spent a lot of time at goth clubs in my 20s. Definitely preferred the vibe of the trad goth clubs, but I like the music from the industrial clubs more 🙂

        When I say I have an eclectic taste, I mean it, there’s even *some* country and *some* rap in there.

        I love electronic and dance music (not EDM), but detest Dutch hardcore aka “gabba”, and hardstyle aka annoying jumpy Defqon music! Those two are my least favourite. I like UK happy hardcore and some UK gabber, namely Scott Brown’s stuff, love early 90s Scottish Hardcore, trance, techno, some house (namely French house), a little bit of 808 doesn’t hurt anybody, umm, what else… Industrial dance aka electronic body music/EBM, futurepop (which is what I produce), electroclash (also what I produce), synthwave, modern synthpop (which is what I primarily produce), mostly synth stuff. I like industrial industrial, but some of the artists are just really awful people, so I don’t give them the pleasure of my listening (eh herm, KMFDM), but there are some really lovely people around too.

      Love your music taste Rivet!

      Hey, JuJu:

      What do you mean I’m funny? Funny how? Funny like a clown, like I amuse you? I make you laugh? I’m here to f—ing amuse you? What the f— is so funny about me, tell me!

      Joe Pesci quote from Goodfellas – classic movie, haha!

    Misfortune8 I have just found this and as usual you have outdone yourself.Its amazing and so very helpful as I mentioned before I think you should be on the BH’s payroll. Stay safe and healthy, we all need you. Cheers from Perth.

  • Yeh hopefully it’s coming soon Normap! I also think I’ve written reviews twice for some things! I’m sure bh is working on it. 🙂

  • 4 wks ago

    Hi misfortune8, I want to know if one can fine out what products one has reviewed so that I dont try to review them twice? I know you used to be able to do this. Thanks

    • 3 wks, 5 days ago

      Normap: at the moment, it is possible to accidentally review things twice! I’m sure Bh will fix this glitch, in time.

      To find out if we’ve previously reviewed something, or to check that our review is published, is hard work. I had the same problem with an item that had 25 pages of reviews! I had to go through each page of reviews & look for mine. It wasn’t there, so I took note of the total number of reviews so I’d know when a new one came through. That saved me from checking each page daily.

    Thanks for your congrats re: my first DB! I did a bit of all round briefing re: recovery. Don’t know where it landed. Under the Discovery Bag thread somewhere!! You are such a tireless supporter, problem solver and all round star person.
