Okay I spoke to Adam briefly about this and I thought maybe it was just my puter..... Now I am not so sure.

I have noticed several times when I am sending a PM that once I type out an nice long PM and hit enter that I get an error message telling me that the user name is not found. I then need to amend the user id as requested and once I click on this to go back wallah.... message body is gone. Arrrrgggghhhh.... Crap!

This has happened to me on PM replies and PM's that I choose a member from my buddy list. So in saying this me thinks it is not me that is making the mistake because I am choosing a prexisiting user name that has previously worked before.

With some luck Adam and Norsky or any other puter guru's here may be able to find a fix for what is seemingly a problem.

Another reason I am bringing this up is because I know of another couple of members now who have been experiencing the same issue.

I have had this happen frequently enough that I now resort to copying the message prior to hitting the send button in the advent I receive the dreaded error message.

Soooooo, how about it? Any of youuse (sorry, borrowed that werd from Joel) guyz & galz havin this or a similar problem? Enquiring minds shore do want ta know! Tuxblacray2008-10-01 12:30:14

Yes. During the past two weeks or so I have had the same result when using the PM function.
It seems that when I do it over a second time it goes through.

Exactly Tux. More than once I've typed out a big ole PM, and had the same error message and lost it. I thought maybe there was a size limit to the PM space or somethin. It pizzes me off pretty good.Angry I too copy before I attempt to send, if I remember.

Yes Tux, it's standard practice for me to copy text before hitting send. 
I've been burned like that too many times Wits%20End

Ditto - I can't count how many times I've had that happen.  Most of the time it is related to my session "timing out" and I need to log in again to complete the message.  I too have gotten in the habit of copying/pasting the message into NotePad before clicking the Send button.

Add me to it.Angry

Like Ron, I thought it was just a senior moment, happening every 3 or 4 PM's.  I had convinced myself that I was not clicking exactly on Submit and then hit Home or something that got me out of it.  That was for the last few months. 

In the last few weeks, it has come with the message Tux speaks of. So, I'll take the rap for the last few months, but now I can play the blame game and rest comfortably in the assurance that it's SEP (somebody else's problem).

Exact same thing happened to me in March of this year.  I was trying to send a PM to Adam and got the error message.  After several e-mails back and forth we determined that the problem was with my computer because no one else was having the problem.  Like Ron and Dennis, I thought it was me having a senior moment. Confused  I have not had the problem recently.  Misery loves company!Unhappy

It has happened to me a couple of times.
Didn't seem to be any rhyme or reason, but it might be related to time that the window is open.
 
Could also just be wierd.Confused

Jim, why is it the session times out? Was there a change made somewhere along the line? I don't remember previously my session timing out. But, since you bring this up I notice that mine does now as well.

I know that up until recently (this year) I had never experienced the issue.

I am not sure if this is the common factor or not. I guess I was hoping through this thread that enough conversation would be generated to pinpoint a root cause from a list of possible varibles.

At this point it appears I was not the Lone Ranger. Tuxblacray2008-10-01 12:37:17

Yep. You said a mouthful Tux. Guess I've experienced it all, to the point of avoiding PM except for one liners or so. Very frustrating.

Until the source of the problem is identified and corrected, just be sure to "copy" all of your P/M text before hitting the "send" button. I've run into similar issues when posting in the forums, and it's always after spending 20-30 minutes on a reply. I have learned to "copy" it all before posting, just in case.
I have only had the issue with the P/M once or twice, as far as the "user unknown" deal, but I get e-mails for a lot of folks that try to P/M me and they get the same error message....

Joel,
 
Thank you for your reply.  I know Tux and others have suggested copying it before hitting send.  I'll try and figure out how to do that.
 
You may be on to something about length of message.  The one that I lost yesterday, I spent a lot of time to get it just right, and lost it all.Unhappy  Others that took only a few minutes to type went right through.Wink
 
Thank you.
 
Dean

This is more than my nerves can take!!!!!!!! It happens all the time, i

on it. It seems this has been going on for awhile.
