I tried to send a new PM to dencorso and got a message stating that he is no longer receiving new messages. I then communicated with him through a PM thread that we had already established, and he said he has been receiving new PMs from others as usual. Later he said that my new PM to him arrived, from his point of view, in spite of the message I got. But my new PM to him did not show up on my list of messages, making it impossible for me to communicate with him about the new topic in the usual manner.

 

What's up with all that?

 

Please solve this problem.

 

Thank you very much.

 

Larry

(It seems, doesn't it, that a PM can be 'initiating a 'New' Conversation' which

makes another entry to the My Conversations list or a PM can be 'adding a

reply to an already established Conversation' which enumerates the replies

to an already existing Conversation in the My Conversations list. You do seem

to be aware of this, but it may be helpful if I state this up front.)

 

"I tried to send a new PM to dencorso and got a message {from the IP.Board

system} "stating that he is no longer receiving new messages."

 

Possibly Dencorso's storage quota of 'New' Conversations had reached the

'full' limit.

 

"I then communicated with him through a PM thread that we had

already established," "and he said he has been receiving new{?} PMs from

others as usual."

 

Possibly Dencorso may have meant he was certainly receiving PM's to

already established Conversations - or more probably, he had deleted or

archived out some of his Conversations , which had the effect of dropping

his storage quota of Conversations below the 'full' limit.

(The latter theory tends to find support from this following sentence:)

"Later he said that my new PM to him arrived, from his point of view, in spite

of the message I got."

 

"But my new PM to him did not show up on my list of messages, making it

impossible for me to communicate with him about the new topic in the usual

manner."

 

My theory here is that the IP.Board system dealt with your PM initially by

informing you Dencorso's New Conversations quota limit was 'full' and held

your PM in 'abeyance' - seems when the PM was eventually placed in his New

Conversations list, that the IP.Board software did not automatically act to

also make an entry in your New Conversations list. (To be fair, this sequence

of events would not happen often.)

Unlikely to happen again, but if this problem occurs again, then:

possibly, if you sign out of the forum and then sign back in, that action

could trigger a check of your PM's, and the PM may then appear in your list.

Alternately, maybe Dencorso, after reading your PM, didn't mark (tick) the

PM as 'Mark Read' (see drop down box at bottom of My Conversations page).

That action triggers a change in the status of your PM so that when you

view it, it shows as 'Read' (by the addressee at such and such a time) -

if you request that he mark the PM as 'Mark Read', possibly your PM may then

appear in your My Conversations list.

WOW, buyerninety, thank you so much for your detailed, analytical, well-thought-out response!!!

 

Since so much of your analysis concerns dencorso's state of affairs, from his point of view, I'll ask him to respond, through a PM thread we've already established.

 

Thanks again,

Larry

@buyerninety:

 

I just sent dencorso a new PM, and everything worked OK: the message was sent successfully and it appears in my list of messages so that I can communicate with him in this new PM thread, as usual.

 

I have no idea what happened to rectify this situation.

My best guess is that the gremlins get confused, sometimes, and work in a *positive* manner. (lol)

 

Thanks again, buyerninety,

Larry
