Does anyone have experience with their Outbox filling up and not sending?

I have 12 messages that still haven't been sent.

Looking for tricks or help to get my requests sent.

Super Thanks!

As a practical matter, if you send a PM to someone who is not on the board very often it may take a while for them to get around to reading it.

If possible it would be much better to have a window pop up in the middle of the screen when you have a message. Way too many people complain they have a bunch of pm's in their outbox that aren't being read.

I have missed messages as well because I don't look up in top right corner to see if I had messages. When I log in if a screen popped up then it wouldn't be an issue.

I have 8 messages in my outbox for months and the people I sent them to have logged in multiple times since I sent the message. I imagine they aren't seeing they have a message.

My two cents

The site does give a popup for new PMs already, but you have to opt into it. It's under Board Preferences in your User Control Panel

Could we add a feature where, when I log in, the site will read my pm's to me in the voice of codeblue or mfaith?

I can't send pm's, it keeps taking me to the log in screen when I hit send, even though I'm already logged in. Can someone help me?

Log back in, hit the back button until you get to the message then resend. This is a function of EB sucking

First couple of pages are hilarious.

ps can we rename the outbox? Something like "limbo " or "sent to all users"
just a foil for me today, thanks
