Can't seem to send a PM at all, types in ok, then when press send, I get this, and it might just be us, because we've just this mo received one!

What have we done?!!

KnottyAndPistey Mon 02-Nov-15 11:36:53

Ok, have tested it now, can receive but can't send some, have just successfully replied to two from today, but having problems with ones earlier

KnottyAndPistey Mon 02-Nov-15 11:37:09

Need gin and it is still MORNING

Hi KnottyAndPistey - thanks for flagging this. Looks like you're on Safari? And on desktop site?

KnottyAndPistey Mon 02-Nov-15 16:38:53

oh that's SPOOKY!!!

Have you got a webcam on me?


Yes and yes, damn, you're GOOD!

we guessed from your screenshot

We've flagged to Tech and they'll take a look at what's going on.

That made me hoot grin

I can't send PMs either, same message as above, also Safari.

Im having the same problem. Win7, Firefox.

First I could see a white box with no message, it looked like it was bugged. Then a second white box with a message 'prevent this page from creating additional dialogues'. Then a later message saying ´you have to be logged into the main site to send a PM´, despite being logged in enough to see the pms in the first place.

Ok, on Win 10 I've just tried IE, Edge and Chrome and none of them are letting me send PMs.

Same for me on my iPad.

WhoTheFuckIsSimon Wed 04-Nov-15 06:29:25

But it was ok for me last night.

KnottyAndPistey Wed 04-Nov-15 08:09:24

Just seem to be having the problem with the same person, which is odd

noblegiraffe Wed 04-Nov-15 09:59:30

Oh, I just tried sending to someone else and it worked but I still can't send to the original person I was trying. confused

KnottyAndPistey Wed 04-Nov-15 10:19:00

Giraffe - same, exactly that, bonkers stuff confused

WhoTheFuckIsSimon Wed 04-Nov-15 10:34:52

I still can't PM the person I need to PM.

tribpot Wed 04-Nov-15 10:47:04

This is the Safari logo! Rocket science it is not. grin

Hi folks,

KnottyAndPistey showing off again about how many PMs they get.



KnottyAndPistey Wed 04-Nov-15 13:08:49

Some of us are just popular BIWI

and some of us aren't


KnottyAndPistey Wed 04-Nov-15 13:11:57

I will have comments, just need to think first!

noblegiraffe Wed 04-Nov-15 18:05:37

I still can't send the PM I've been trying to send since yesterday angry

Interestingly, I tried to report the PM I was replying to to flag the problem with MNHQ, and the button did nothing, so I couldn't.

On a different PM from a different poster, I could reply, and the report button brought up the report screen.

ImperialBlether Wed 04-Nov-15 20:15:49

Same message here.

WhoTheFuckIsSimon Wed 04-Nov-15 21:36:49

Mnhq, Any idea how long before this is fixed? I Need to PM someone quite urgently!

DawnMumsnet (MNHQ) Thu 05-Nov-15 17:42:53
