PM Messages

I sent 2 PMs. Both indicate they're sent but the OUTBOX indicates 2 still in the OUTBOX. Doesn't OUTBOX mean that messages have not been sent? Since I didn't get a response, I'm wondering if the PM system is having a problem.

Outbox means it's sent but not read by the person you sent it to. Once read it will be in the Sent box.
You can send me one to test. I'll watch for it.

Hi Slider,

What Derk said, plus, you can still edit your private message while in OUTBOX.

BTW - please, let us not become a 'PM Wing' where usual stuff is not posted at the Forum/Discord anymore, but written via private messages. There's always something that others can learn from conversations (if not really privately). This is why I think, transparency in most cases is very good for us.

Cheers,
Nick

I'm pretty sure that there isn't a concern in this area that I'm aware of. Many communications only between two individuals while not necessarily 'private' are best only between two members and not need to be posted in forums posts. Slider is correct in sending a PM as requested and is working fine for him as we have tested.
