Hey it looks like the PM system isn't working. I tried on several different browsers and on a mobile device. When I try to send a PM the page just reloads and the message won't send. Anyone else?

I'm pretty sure this has been a recurring problem for a while now. It hasn't happened to me yet so I'm not sure what to do except wait it out and hope it fixes itself. :-/

Like Xepherian said, it happens occasionally (and seemingly if you receive several PMs in a given day). It will go away, the question is always when. Sadly, don't think the staff can fix that one.

CORRECTION: Try it now. If it doesn't work, sign-off and then sign back in. I think I fixed your issue.

I'm having the same problem now, hitting send message just refreshes the page. It's been that way since yesterday afternoon, initially it worked sometimes but now I can't send anything... :(

Can anything be done?

Thanks

Hi LH--as an established member, you are limited to a certain number of PMs per day (5). I've temporarily raised the threshold to 10.

Ooh right that explains it, any way to pop a message up to let people know when they've hit the limit. I thought I was losing my mind there for a bit! :facepalm:

Thanks for clearing it up, I'll likely hit that limit again. But i'll know what it is now. :)

I know you guys are kidding, but just as a reminder to all, spamming to increase thread count is against the Forum Rules. :blasphemy bat:

:) Wouldn't dream of it...

I read the forum rules :coffee: ...but didn't see the PM restriction details for new members outlined there.
Is there another place where all this stuff is laid out?

I'm also hoping there's an email notification feature and thread subscription option waiting to be activated on the 50th post!? I hope I'm not waiting in vain. ;_;

Or have I missed something there as well?

Sorry, no site notifications unless you have a ZetaBoards premium account . . . which I do not think any here has (so I cannot actually confirm its features).

The forum rules are about conduct. We haven't laid out the various tiers of membership and what restrictions each has. Maybe its something the Staff can review.

Ah shame about the notifications, would be very handy.

And yeah, I would have appreciated having a clear description of the tier system, it definitely threw me off a bit.
Especially the PM thing not telling the user why it's suddenly stopped sending messages, but I guess that might be limited by the zetaboard system as well?

@Linus: yes, zetaboards. I suffered it too when I was first selling my LodgeNet trove. I was working out deals with folks then bam, messages would not send without explanation. Please known that the Staff does what it can to fix stuff and when we can't fix it, to at least explain it. We oftem lament that our "Admin Control Panel" does not come with an instruction manual; we have to learn it ourselves and offen by trial and error.

Yup, wouldn't dream of it. The first forum I belonged to years and years ago was actually the strictest I've ever been a member of. Ironically it was a car forum. Anyways, first bump would get you a severe warning. Second bump would get you suspended for a week. Third bump was deactivation.

And bumping wasn't even just limited to "bump." Any type of random comment that didn't contribute to the conversation was considered a bump. Like I said... STRICT.

Ever since then I've treated every forum pretty much the same way and I have been programmed that bumping is really, really, really bad.


@Knightly, hey hey now, Tofu is good! You just have to cook it right...

@tofu: well, bumping is OKAY here. If there is an old tooic you want to legitimately revive, that is fine. We would MUCH rather you do that than create a new duplicative post. What we prohibit is posts that do not anything (only made to boost post count).
