PM "send" doesn't send

Postby Sungura » Thu Oct 08, 2015 3:38 am UTC

I've been having this issue for the last week now. When I create a new PM, and click "send", it gives me a preview. I can click "send" from the preview screen and then it will send. In reply window, the "send" button works. It has happened every single time (first few times I thought maybe I miss-clicked, and then realized, nope, it just isn't sending!). (And the "preview" goes to the preview screen as well, yes.)

It's been that way for as long as I can remember. If you preview the message first, then send it, or if you load the message from draft, I'm pretty sure it sends first go.

This is probably happening because you haven't clicked "Add" first to add the people you're sending the message to. When you hit "Submit", if you haven't added the people you listed, they'll be added along with the preview. If this really bothers you, hit Add, then Submit.

I did add first.
It doesn't do it to replies only to new PMs
I don't rememeber it but I haven't used the PM system to initiate conversation for a few years so could be an old new thing
