The box to reply to a PM has gone all small and it's near impossible to write a message confused

Anyone else?

Hi, PolterGoose.

We'll let tech know, maybe they can work out what's going on. Thanks for letting us know. smile

Hi, PolterGoose.

Which phone are you using? Is there any chance you could take a screen shot so we can have a look?


PolterGoose Fri 25-Oct-13 15:17:56

Yum cake thank you flowers

It's an iPhone

Have emailed screenshots to you.

JulieMumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 25-Oct-13 15:21:48

grin Are you using safari as your browser?

Thank you, I'll pass those on.

I flagged this up ages ago.

You can only write a couple of words at a time in the box.

PolterGoose Fri 25-Oct-13 15:27:42

Yes, Safari.

usual this only started for me in the last week or 2, I had a quick look at recent posts in site stuff and there wasn't anything, at first I thought it was just another one of those anomalies we get when tech has been playing around...

Sorry, I started a thread about my teeny tiny inbox a couple of weeks ago.

I'm on a kindle.

usualsuspect Fri 25-Oct-13 15:30:24

Reply box I should say, not in box.

cake I'll ask tech to look. Are you using an iPhone too? Safari for your browser? Any chance you can send us a screen shot? We don't mind how; email, postcard, semaphore, carrier pigeon, smoke signals, we don't mind.

Oh, kindle! (x post). We'll have a think.

usualsuspect Fri 25-Oct-13 15:32:08

I'm on a kindle, silk browser.

No idea how to do a screenshot on a kindle.

No problem, and thank you. I've sent tech the details of your problem so he can have a look. smile

usualsuspect Fri 25-Oct-13 15:43:01

Than you .thanks

It really is annoying.

TEErickOrTEEreat Fri 25-Oct-13 15:48:24

Oh yeah, tiny little box on the Kindle Fire HD.

I don't think you can get a screen shot on a Kindle.

Oh wait, I'll take a picture with my iPhone and send that! grin

It's the same for me on a Samsung. Also clicking send message doesn't give any clue that the message has been sent (the button doesn't even respond) meaning I have sent replys several times sadly.

usualsuspect Fri 25-Oct-13 15:56:03

No you don't know if the reply has been sent.It's all a bit wrong.

I have to check my sent box to check the reply has been sent.

TEErickOrTEEreat Fri 25-Oct-13 16:08:23

Yes. Agree. That's a mobile site issue, not specific to any one device.

On the main site you get a message saying 'your message has been sent'.

Nada on the mobile site.

I just sent a picture of my Kindle to contactus. grin

usualsuspect Fri 25-Oct-13 16:15:17

Well done Tee, I couldn't quite figure out how to send a picture of my teeny tiny reply box.

JulieMumsnet (MNHQ) Thu 07-Nov-13 14:26:25


Are the PM boxes still teeny-tiny??

PolterGoose Thu 07-Nov-13 14:37:15

Still tiny and still doesn't give any indication that a PM has been sent.

JulieMumsnet (MNHQ) Thu 07-Nov-13 14:45:40

Thanks, PolterGoose.

We'll pass that on to tech. cake?

gaggiagirl Thu 07-Nov-13 14:51:15

Same here but as I only sent my first pm a few weeks ago I thought that was normal blush.
I'm on a windows phone and couldn't screen shot if my life depended on it

JulieMumsnet (MNHQ) Thu 07-Nov-13 14:52:53

Thank you, gaggiagirl. smile
