The login issue is being looked into. It started after we moved the forum to a new server to make it faster. As soon as it is corrected you will know.

The reported PM issue is different. I have surveyed 20 members who have PM'ed me in the past and none have any issue with the system. I encourage you to contact Jeff or myself when you have an issue when it occurs so we can address it and not air it in a post. That just slows us down in responding to the issue. 

As a reminder the process for sending a PM is as follows. Click on the recipient's username. Then when on their profile page, click on "message me". The PM dialog box will pop up and there you can write your message before sending. If they respond you will get an email and also a number will be posted beside your username (when logged in) telling you how many un-looked at messages (or new messages).

Sounds good in theory but when one can not send a PM, how can one send you a PM?  In the past the message was created, I have clicked on "submit" or what ever action was available and things just sat until I left the site.  That is why I thought it might just be ISP related and gave up.

Did you notify Jeff or I? Can't fix what we don't know about.

David,

It's impossible to contact you with out doing it on the forum if you can't send a PM.

Mr. Reiss, I had sent two PM's to you, several weeks ago, concerning the Teslong borescope article. The PM system showed I had responses, but the text box was blank. I do have a VPN, maybe that messed things up. It sometimes can interfere with things.

Gary - I read your PM when it was sent and just read it again. It does not suggest you needed a response, as you were only making a comment to me about the purchase of a borescope. I am truly sorry if I interpreted it that way. 

David - I have spoke to you on the phone before and exchanged emails. My contact name and info is on the CBA website, in every FS inside the front cover and in a lot of articles I have written in the FS. In addition I send out newsletters nearly every month from our Constant Contact account which always has my contact info. So when you say a PM is the only way to get a hold of me, is to say the least, perplexing. Jeff info is also inside the front cover of the FS and on the website along with all the other members of the CBA board. We are always available to help, with is unusual for most organizations to post such info.

The login issue is resolved. Until I get accurate reports on the PMs, I can't do anything now.

There was an issue that had not been fixed, but it now has and the login is again fixed.

We went over the entire program and everything tested good. PM can be sent and received, photos can be posted and so on. If you have any issues it will be due to your system. Using Google Chrome and Firefox creates fewer issues.

Shopdog you were tagged as a standard member and not a CBA member. I have changed your status so you should be able to post photos now.

Signed in this morning on iPad. Works okay, except message shows at top: 

Sorry, an error occurred while processing your request.

In spite of the message, it works well.
