- What happened?
On multiple ocassions, when PM'ing people through the classifieds, the "Send PM" button on the actual thread would work as intended, but would not send private messages. The link that is built in to the thread, upon clicking it, functions as intended. After clicking send message, the message looks like it's been sent as intended, however if you go into your sent messages folder the private message has no link to the conversation as it normally would. Upon further investigation, the sellers that I was trying to contact never ended up receiving these private messages.
- Are you able to reproduce this problem consistently?
Yes I was.
- What steps did you take to reproduce this problem?
I tried PM'ing several prospective sellers with the "Send PM' link built into the classifieds thread. After not receiving a reply for a good 24-36 hours and having the same 'non-linkable conversation' in my sent items mailbox, I sent the same users PM's through the drop down menu under their username. These messages ended up getting received by all of the sellers that I contacted through the classifieds. I could also click on and view the conversations in my sent messages mailbox.
- What action did you expect to occur when this bug appeared?
I expected it to be a simple fluke in the system when it happened originally, but when it kept occuring I realized something was off. Other members have been having this issue as well from what I've noticed in the posts in classifieds threads.
- Any additional information that will help us diagnose the issue:
The large red arrows show private messages that I tried to send using the "Send PM" button built into the classifieds thread. As you can see, they are unclickable and do not display the correct subject message. The small green arrows show PM's to the same people, but I used the Send PM function through the drop down menu under each member's username. As you can see, these PM's actually went through to the member and the conversations are clickable and have the correct subject line.
- Browser, active browser addons, and operating system:
Google Chrome, No Add-Ons, Windows 7 Home
- URL where the issue occurs:
All of the classifieds threads.
