Question re: PMs...

Postby Rath Darkblade » Fri, 24 Oct 2014 9:40 pm

(Private Messages, of course - not Prime Ministers). ;)

How long does it take for a PM to be sent? I checked my User Control Panel, and two of my PMs are still in Outbox (rather than Sent Messages). I sent one of them just now, but the other was sent earlier this morning. *shrug*

I thought this was because my Outbox was full, so I trimmed it a little. I now have room for 10 messages to be sent - but the PMs still won't move from Outbox to Sent Messages. Is there something I can do?

This is a good question. I think the wiggle here is that, unlike emails, PMs stay in your outbox until they've been read by the recipient. I've had one in mine for months.

The only remedy that I know of is to contact the recipient by other means and prompt them to read it.
