Forum Private Messaging

Forum Private Messaging

The PMS messaging service for the forum was inactivated because of some problems loosing messages.

However, if we are to shut down the bbctalk listserve, then BBC members will need a way to communicate outside the public forum.  The PMS provides such a "vehicle".
Alternately BBC members need access to a complete rider directory of email and other contacts.  Although for the Forum paradigm to work correctly, the PMS is the way to go.

One problem with PMS is specifying multiple message recipients.

Re: Forum Private Messaging

In the PM systems I've dealt with, multiple recipients can be looked up and added, separated by some sort of delimiter.

2015  mileage=6,200 miles;
2016 mileage=17,503 miles;

Re: Forum Private Messaging

I reactivated the PMS system since I updated the forum software.  Test it out.

If you Preview a PM and then Submit it, then body of the message will be BLANK on receipt and the message will NOT be retained in the Sent folder.

So it seems there is still a bug with it.  I will deactivate it and hopefully it will be fixed in the next version.

I tried to respond to a PM that Steve sent me, but kept getting "Invalid User - Steve" in response.

Maybe this is because it's deactivated, but I have had records sent to me.

Re: Forum Private Messaging

There is still a problem with PM so I turned it off again.  I sent a message to the author of Agora alerting him to the problem of PM messages disappearing if you preview or send them.  As soon as he resolves it I will reinstate the PM function with the fix.

Re: Forum Private Messaging

Since the problem only happens after doing a preview, I would prefer to have the functionality of a flawed PM.

If the bbctalk listserv is to be shut anytime soon, the PM system has to be available.
Only other possibility is open access to people's email in order to do private conversations.
(And reduce public forum junk).

Re: Forum Private Messaging

OK, but if I get any complaints I will shut it down again.
