    I passed this on in the staff forums.

    I had a user PM me a test. They got a database error, but I have a notification of a new PM, so it seems to be accessing the PMs/inbox that gives the error.

    Anyone else having problems with Stratics' Private Messages ?

    When I try to access my Stratics' Private Messages I get the following :

    I tried reloading many times but always get this error message and am unable to read my PMs.

    Anyone else having the same trouble ?

    I don't seem to have a problem getting into the private message system.

    Wonder why.....

    I just noticed this thread after I posted mine........

    I am also having trouble accessing my PMs and that includes INBOX and SENT messages alike.

    Since someone else is experiencing similar difficulties it seems it might be more of a general problem.

    I have no clue what to do to fix it.

    Private Messaging currently down

    Currently the private message system appears to be broken. I have notified people, so please be patient.
    Apologies to those people who have sent me a pm about it - I'll read them when I can.
    This also means, that for the time being, I can't issue any infractions. I'm taking notes. The folk that earn them will get them in due course :D

    Re: Private Messaging currently down

    :D indeed.
    The popup message notification works, that includes the title of the message and name of sender. So I know, when I can access it, that I have a message about pm's being broken.

    it should also be noted that on the database error message the link for notifying someone (mailto: ) is not filled with a valid email address!

    That has been noted, thanks. It would seem this problem doesn't affect everyone. The number of unread messages in my box has doubled.
