Cant reply to PM

Postby skaboy607 » Thu Aug 23, 2012 13:40 pm

Hi,

For some reason I cannot reply to a private message or even compose a new message. I was have a conversation with another forum member but now cannot carry on?

How can this be resolved?

Thanks

The boys in charge thought it would be a good idea to put a post limit on new accounts before they could pm. It hasn't been well received.

Read about it here viewtopic.php?f=40033&t=12872757

Well that could be an issue as I have arranged to purchase something off this member but now cannot interact with him.

Administrators, please advise.........?

Would some who can please send a PM to the member I am trying to get in touch with and give him my email address?

Perhaps admin should have considered this as a possibility and only applied this to members registering from now. Nice of them to disappear though......

It's not entirely straightforward.

We're currently looking into it.

Genuine question.

Mr Louse has been in this thread bleating about no admins online and whatnot. But there are 4 of you on regularly, including over the weekend yet it's taken until now for one of you to do something.

Just what are you boys doing?

Different kind of admin. We can edit/delete/whatever any posts or topics, ban and edit users etc. We can't make back-end changes, that requires the involvement of other staff who are around less frequently.

Nope.

Back end changes are off limits for us.
