FAO : Snoozer (and anyone else who is nosey or uses the PM system)

A short while back you said that you had a problem with the PM system
(would of helped *cough* if you had posted here)

you said that it was saying you had 1 unread PM
but you had no unread PMs

can you confirm if this is still the case

and if anyone else has had the problem please report

O yes, I am a noob, forgot to post it

I still have it showing - Private Messages: Unread 1, Total 146. with no PM currently unread... Checked all my folders, etc but to no avail.

Now, when I log into my LAN passport I get a popup saying, click here to read, you've got a PM, and there is no new PM

That's all I can really explain.

The problem still remains.

ok here is some solution's, will make 2 posts

Its very unlikely to be the system its self

PMs can be hidden by mistake
This is how
IF you look at the screen shot
when you click the "-" () icon
it will make that days/weeks/months PM disappear

So check there isn't any icon which have "+" () on them
if you can find one, that be the one

If you cant be arsed to look through all them
here is the best way to get rid of them

GO to the TOP right hand side in PMs
there is a tick box
Tick the TOP one and it will tick all boxes (on that page)
even if they are hidden

Then go to the bottom of the page
and "mark read"

Do this on every page and it should stop the problem for you

If you have a person on ignore can they still send you messages?

If so perhaps its saying you have a message but because you have them on ignore you cant see it?

Nah it first occurred when I applied for the seating group last lan. It popped up saying I had a message, to which I clicked it. It came up popup blocked...

So I went to my PM's and there was nothing there...

Personally it doesn't actually bother me, just thought I'd tell Rash.

i do apologise
i did look in to this a long while back, but i been waiting on kyle get check some SQL stuff, but his backlog is getting quite long.
So i will update with what i know so far.

I didnt need to go in to all your PMs
what i did find is that there is a problem with one of the PMs send to you from the LAN (like you said)
It seems that something in the PM never got completed (might of been someone making changes to seating group and not saving it) (that's the bit i need kyle for)

Now its seem you should have a "Blank" PM
The date on it should be either 1970 or 1980 (its a php thing) (or a date around that)

So what i would do Snoozer is look at your very 1st PM
it should be there

not even sure if u will be able to click it (as there dont seem to be a topic in the DB for it)
If that is the case, just TICK the box next to it and mark it as "read"
that should sort out your problem

(if you dont mind though, plz dont delete as when kyle gets the time to look in to it he should be able to stop it happening to others)

Let me know if that sorts it
