PM links are busted on profile page, works on discussion thread pages

FYI, it looks like the private messages don't work when you try to send them from the profile page.

The PM link on the profile page is always using a user id of zero. Here's the link I get every time:

However, it should have the proper user id number in the url... in my case it's 15882. So the URL should look like this:

You CAN send a PM from the Private Message link under a person's name in a discussion thread, just not from their user profile page.

However, it does appear that the message submits fine and it shows up in your sent messages. However, the 'TO' column will be empty in the sent messages list.

There is no error message indicating the message didn't get sent to the intended recipient.

The gravatars are being weird, at least on my devices. They are mostly mismatched with the names of the poster.

It also eats threads pretty often too.

It's probably time for some real forum software...

This site isn't working very well.  I can't see my account and membership expiration date, can't update my profile, can't change my PW.  Stop sending me emails to renew my membership until I can get the information I need.

Carol,if this is a legitimate concern and not spam, leaving a message on the board is not a very effective way to get concerns looked at. Try contacting the offices directly.

Stu- I picked up the chair tag and posted on the morning of morning of 1/22, posted a new tag the same evening, and added an additional clue on 1/29.  They were links, not full pictures, which I though sufficient.

Posting a new tag is fine with me. I trust there will be no whining if that happens.
