I'm not the only one having problems with Private Messaging.

lol... That has always happened to me, even in the beginning. I also liked (says sarcastically) when it would tell you there were two people with the same screen name.... WTF

Personally, I like the first one that is a little closer to my join date and number of posts.

I tried sending you a PM. I have a list of "friends" specifically saved for use in PM. When I picked 'You" this is what happened when I hit send:



The following user accounts have the same screen name. Select the user or users who should receive this private message.

  • You only appear once in my friend list but I'd imagine that this is the clue to what's up with this issue.

I have the same problem with others who have two accounts listed for some reason.

Moon.... it appears the PM issue is not an isolated one. Of course around here it only has to work sometimes for it to be accepted as something that works.

Just look at the post count for the board. Well over a year ago, long before the "you know what", we hit our 200,000 mark. A few weeks ago we were up over 220,000. Todays count appears to be 189,000+.

The issue has been reported. I'm told "some" board counts aren't accurate. (Ya think?) Oh...and they really don't know what the counts are on some boards....and never have. Of course no one has any qualms about posting a grossly inaccurate number. I believe they find the post totals indicative of a board's traffic .

Give or take 31,000 posts.

Mrspe,

As two women who work (and live) by numbers, that just makes my blood boil.

Yes you should be frustrated. Have you ever logged on to other sites you hold membership and discover you've lost functionality one day and have it the next? Do the pages jump the hell all over the place? Do you get continual scripting errors? And if you report a problem do they ask you every single time what browser

You're 100% right.

Tasha,

I'm writing again to ask the status of the Private Messaging problem.

Hi Joy,

Here's the latest from tech support -

No, it's still not something they've been able to fix yet. When it is, I'll update the status here. In the meantime, you can have the members email me with the membername they are trying to pm and I can do a temporary fix that will/should allow a PM to go through. The email to use is techtalk@mail.ivillage.com.
