This seemed like the appropriate thread to post in, so.......

I need to PM another member of this site at their request and am unable to do so. Here's the message I get: "We are sorry, but you are not authorised to use this feature. You may have just registered here and may need to participate more to be able to use this feature."

Longgggg time reader but seldom post, been a member for awhile though. Can someone from admin address this for me ? Thanks !

If I owned it I would get an Indian to fix it for a couple of hundred $

I don't think this site has ever been glitch-free. I remember the long posting delays, and the session issues after the overhaul. You know, outside of the actual content of the forums, the technical problems are just as much a turn-off to the uninitiated. I really don't think the traffic on this site is high enough for these to merely be a symptom of overloaded servers.

You might want to look at the stats on alexa. You'll see that traffic tracks predictably based on the price of gas. It's been very slowly creeping back up as gas prices go up.

Same here also, I wonder when the web-site is going to be fixed of these problems lately, seems like logging on is rather difficult to.

I am getting "can't find the web site errors" a lot lately.

Can't send Private messages

Post by threadbear » Sat 17 Apr 2010, 11:53:35

I am trying to contact a forum member and my messages aren't getting through. Is the problem with the forum, or is there something on my end that I'm not doing. I don't get it. Maybe the problem will be addressed along with the other glitches that are currently popping up. Here's hoping. I'm trying to pass phone, address email to Nicholai and don't want to do it on the open forum.

SG is correct.
For incoming messages, you should see a note, oh, about 11 o'clock, that will state how many, if any, messages you have. Also, at the bottom of the Menu Bar, it says, "Private Messages." If you have any, this will be spinning around. (sorta like me, some days! :) )



thanks everyone for replying, SG got your message. :) Happy Valentines Day everyone...

Hi Jay, I did reply, just now. If messages are shown in the outbox they haven't been opened by the recipient. Sent messages are those which have been opened. Messages in your outbox can still be cancelled/ edited. Once sent they can't be.

my message box says I have -1 messages. My outbox is logging the messages. So I don't know if they are actually being delivered. (Seagypsy and Kristen, you MIGHT have a new message)

Suggestion, right now the software tells you if you have a 'new' private message. While this is helpful in some circumstances if you do not notice it when you are looking at the page the next time you log on it logically says you have 0 new messages unless additional messages came in while you were logged off.

I think the board would be better served if the counter told you how many UNREAD private messages you have, that way you would see the number of waiting messages every time you came online instead of just the first time after the message was sent. I have noticed that sometimes private messages I send are not read for some time by the recipient and I think this is part of the reason...

Thanks for reading and considering this suggestion.

Messages remain in the outbox until whoever they're addressed to reads them. Then they show in the sentbox...

Major upgrades and the accompanying problems with all that.
Avatars weren't working for a while, some people had problems with
their accounts. I would think your problems had to do with the
upgrades they were doing...

I can access PMs on Mac OS X 10.5.3 + Firefox 3b3 :)

Re: Cannot access PM's

Post by RedStateGreen » Sun 15 Jun 2008, 17:27:54

I'm using Firefox, and it's up to date.

For a while there I could get to my messages, but now I can't again. Weird.

Have you tried a different web browser? If it's just you having the problem then maybe you're web browser is messed up or has messed up settings. What browser are you using?
