PM Issues

Post by bigsciota »

During a recent interaction over email a fellow member said he sent me a PM here to verify my identity. I did not receive it, and I don't think he received the PM I sent him for the same purpose. I've been able to PM people here before with no issues, although now I notice that my message to him seems to be sitting in my "outbox" rather than "sent."

Is there some issue with the messaging system?

It 's a recurring question, pms remain in your outbox until they are opened.

Ah, that's good to know, thanks!

Still wondering where the other PM went, though. I deleted messages from my inbox so there's room, and I don't think I or the other person is under some kind of probation or anything. Maybe it's just a weird quirk!

Oh, yeah: also a mod here, not a spammer. A matter of opinion, perhaps.

Yes. "Sent" means the message has been read by the recipient. The system's operating as intended. Don't know about the missing PM, though; it wouldn't have anything to do with a full Inbox, because when full, new messages just claim their spot and push the oldest ones out. Might be operator error.
