    I've been trying to send a Private Message to Hanoch but when I click on "send" I get this error:



    Code:
    There is no such member - please check the name entered and try again.
    
    
    
    This personal message has not been sent
    Am I doing it wrong?

    Ah yes, that is a problem to do with the Display Name -> Nickname conversion I did. I haven't found a way to rectify it yet...

    Aren't there some forums for support/help of IPB? You could register there and ask, how to fix the problem. :p

    I'll have to post that on the forum, I guess. Thanks.

    Why you don't wait, until Qjimbo fixed it? Anyone would see it public and you shouldn't show it. Just share it with Hanoch. :p

    You can send it as a email, the board has an option for that, heh.

    Not if the target person decided to keep it private.

    Completely off-topic, but funnily enough User ID 488 used to be Tweaker's on the old database (don't ask me why I remember that, I remember a lot of random numbers). Mine was 571, don't think that's been taken yet.
