Personal messages?
« on: December 10, 2012, 09:43:36 am »
I tried to respond to a PM from cut4fun,  and send him a PM,  but it doesn't appear that either PM went through.

Maybe I don't have enough posts,  or there's something I'm doing wrong ????

TIA!

I got one PM from you today. Just sent back.

Make sure you are PM'ing and also if you set to long it gets timed out and not sent. Same thing with posting. It will time you out if you walk away come back and hit submit or post or send. You think it sent but you will see read letters saying timed out. You then have to re-send, re-post etc.

On my screen you can just see part of the RED letters when the message didn't go through because the server timed out.

I've learned what it is and resend the message and it goes right on through.
We should share what we know... someone may learn...
That knowledge can live after us... and that "Pays It Forward".

I dont think we could type quick enough before it times out. Just remember if you send and see red letters at the top just hit re-send.

I've tried resetting the timed out setting longer, but it dont seem to do any good.

Most of mine have timed out today but I don't think you have any control over that. The time out has to do with the servers at the host?
