I have been trying to piece together a quick and dirty system to allow users to leave messages on each others sites where any user can leave a message, but they can only see messages they have left, but the site owner can see all their messages as they aer the list admin. Odd requirement I know, but that's what they wanted.
All working fine, but users will probably want an alert when a message is added. When I try and configure alerts on this list I get a 'You cannot create alerts for lists for which users can only read their own items. ' error.
I can see why this wouldn't normally be an issue - why would you want an alert to only be able to see items that you yourself must have added? But in this case it would be handy!
