PM System Broken

The recent changes overnight have broken the PM system!

It is now no longer possible to reply to an existing PM, instead, you get an error message: 'You may not message this member due to their privacy restrictions'

(affects both people in circle and not in circle)

Fortunately it is still possible to send a new PM, thank goodness.

Since it was in doubt I want to say for the record that I am not a dirty pervert. I may be a pervert on occasion but I bath regularly.

Thanks for restoring PM order! :) <br />

*notes EP wide sanity levels are now rising and aggression/frustration levels have returned to baseline*<br />

(it looks like a good system, just that it was about to chuck a Skynet on everyone ;) )

bad tardy!!!!! ;) <br />

Taking your feedback into careful consideration, we've been hard at work building more tools to allow you better control over your privacy... and one aspect just went into overdrive out of our intention.<br />
<br />
We'll take a look and fix it for good over the weekend, but for now we've disabled it so it shouldn't bug you :)

Thank goodness others are having this problem. All day Ive been thinking that some EP manager somewhere decided that I was a dirty pervert and blocked me from everyone else!

I think the behind-the-scenes stuff is screwed up. Don't tell EP ( ;) ), but I tried manually resubmitting the options page to change my options so I should have been able to receive PMs even from flagged people outside of my circle, but it had no effect. <br />
<br />
(Could just have been an ineffective technique on my part though).

i had a little panic that I had either been flagged or blocked by my whole circle.<br />

still making me a bit crazy......

Oh dear. And I had such big plans for my PMs today, too!

I did notice that.... I'm happy it wasn't just me. Being that it is probably easier to fix a whole system than just a handful of members.
