    Default Goddamn PM's

    Does anyone else have pretty much continuous issues with using the PMs on the UU forum?

    Is it browser-specific?

    Is it just me?!

    I really want to contact a member about a uke sale and repeated attempts to send have failed. I'd be happy to say it was my incompetence to blame (!), but this happened the last time I was in a PM discussion and we ended up using personal email.

    I'd be really grateful for any advice anyone has as there is a uke I'm really keen to buy!!

    Thanks

    Ben

    PMs seem to have the same problems that regular posts have - cut off messages. A real problem is the recipient's mailbox being full. You can't contact him to tell him that it's full. : )

    Thanks for replying, Jerry - I don't think it's a full inbox issue...certainly neither of us had that problem when another user and I were trying to communicate a while ago...

    But thanks once again.

    Anyone else got any ideas?

    Little update for those kind enough to read this!

    So, the other user did get my message...but my PM page gives absolutely no indication that any of my messages have been sent!

    So, you just send and hope for the best!

    Anyway, we're in touch so far...!

    That seems to be the way it works. Lots of guessing. You can click on Sent - upper left, to see what messages you've sent. Still, it's not a perfect system.

    that only works if you click the 'Save a copy of this message in your Sent Items folder' under Additional options below and before you send your msg. You can also click the 'Request a read receipt for this message'

    I'm not having any problems lately with PMs. I'm using Safari on MacOS Catalina. My sent PMs automatically go into the sent section. Go to Settings at the top of the window and see if you need to change anything there.

    Thanks all - the other UU user and I are in touch by email now.

    Gosh, I'm useless - trying to see where to close the thread and I can't...will take any tips, and apologies again.

    You can only close threads on the Marketplace. All others remain open—forever!

    And that's why I couldn't!

    Thanks so much!
