Personal Message question...
« on: July 10, 2012, 10:54:13 AM »
If you're trying to reply to a pm sent to you by another member, and after you hit send you get an error message saying that no member of that name can be found...does that mean they're blocking you? Or is it a bug?

I'm not sure about those reasons but I get that message if I've accidentally changed the name in the To: field.

All I did was hit reply. I even tried exiting out of my pm screen and going back in. It still did it.

You might check to see if they've changed their screen name.

Nope....and it was a message that I'd received less than an hour before trying to respond to it.

If someone has you on ignore, it will say "so and so doesn't want to receive PMs from you". If it says no such user and you hit reply, it might be something you want to PM Veks about.

Is Vekseid the one that the error is happening with?

No...but it was a member of staff.

I'm sorry. That's extremely strange and should be reported to Veks. In the meantime, the staff page should have email contacts for all of us. I think most of us have staffname@elliquiy.com emails but I'm not sure if all do, so best to double check.

No problems...thanks Trieste. I've let Veks know, so hopefully he'll be able to fix whatever gremlin it was

I have had oddities with non alphanumeric characters in member names causing troubles in the to field in the distant past. I think it was thought to be some kind of script error browser side
