I'm not sure where this goes but when I try to PM someone it says the above.
How are you trying to send the PM, by looking the member up in the Member List first?
That error is related only to accessing the member list, not sending a PM.
This is the direct link to PM me, can you use that?
The error log shows you were paging thru the member list when you got that error.
Yes, I was going through the member list to find the person I wanted to PM. Is it done another way?
FWIW, I was getting the same error message randomly as I paged thru the list. J, K, R and a few others were showing that error, then a few moments later, they weren't.
If it is a fairly active member, what I do is simply look at a post of theirs and click on their member name. The option to send them a PM is right in there. (Usually, I only think to PM someone while either reading a post of theirs or reading a PM they sent to me, in which case I just hit Reply.)
Yeah, the memberlist goes offline fairly frequently. It temporarily locks for various reasons, but, it comes back after a minute or two.
Oh okay, thanks I will try that instead.
