Unable to send any messages

Postby Bigbucks » Fri Aug 31, 2012 15:04 pm

This is a last resort but it appears that i can send any messages, i tried to contact a moderator but i cant send them a pm either so i m hoping a moderator will see this and please look into my account to rectify whatever the fault maybe. My apologies for hijacking this forum with a message thats not remotely connected to it but its the only way i ll be able to call a moderator, i d be grateful if a moderator could delete this message once my accounts been sorted too
Cheers

I believe you need a posting number of 25 or over to be able to send PM's

I too share Stokey1964's frustration, and so am posting this meaningless rubbish in order to get the ball rolling towards the apparent 25 posts I need before I can PM. The logic of needing 25 posts escapes me. But, apart from this, the site is amazingly informative and useful; thank you.

Dear Rick, I too am having trouble sending PMs - 3 went through initially but after that they are just sitting in my outbox.. and I'm in the middle of purchasing a bike from a member!
Could you activate urgently please?
Many thanks

That just means the recipient hasn't read them yet.

But, should they not be sitting in the 'sent messsages' anyway and not the 'outbox' ?

Any chance an admin could enable PMs for me.

I'm more lurker than prolific poster and don't want to simply spam my way to 25 posts

Thanks

Yep, they go straight to my outbox rather then sent box. I assume they sit there until my account is enabled to send PMs.

Or have I got this all wrong??

Until the recipient reads them (they will be aware of them), it stays in the outbox. You'll know when it has been read, as it will move ;-).
