A query

Post by root wad » Thu Jul 13, 2017 2:35 pm

Is my apparent inability to send a PM due to technical difficulties or pilot error? The message just sits in my outbox and is duplicated when I try to send it again.

Do you get an error message when you try to submit it?

ran in to this a few days ago. there should be an error message at the top saying you have to delete some messages in order for the message to be sent or something like that. If that doesn't work, it's probably your lack of ginger tits that has it hung up.

It's the Russians. And they're threatening to release your PM's.

No. I am composing the message as I always have. I click on submit and it for some reason it goes to preview (never did that before) and then when I click on submit the entire screen goes blank and just stays that way. When I finally get bored and close it out the message is found in the outbox with no way to send it that I can see.

Hey, you figured out how to quote! Like me and salty shiny fish, one step at a time...

Sounds like you did everything right. It will sit in your outbox until the other guy actually reads it.

Were you PMing thunder? It might be a while.

Looks like PMing is not working. I'll contact Grant on this.

Jed, while I obviously got your PM when I tried to reply I got there same blank screen. Perhaps see if anyone else can reply. While I find it quite shocking I am seldom complimented on my technological acuity.

I get it too.

The blank screen comes up but the message is sent. If the message is in your Outbox it is waiting to be sent. It only goes to sent once the recipient opens it.

Mine never used to work that way. It showed up as sent and I never ended up with a completely blank screen after hitting submit. Tried to PM MaineDrifter. Will see if he gets it.
