I don't know where else to post this, but I'm having an issue on here...
I have been PMing back and forth with a user on here, but all of the sudden I can no longer send him/her private messages.
The option to send him/her a private message no longer shows up in his/her profile, and when I try to reply to an old PM from him/her in my inbox, I get a message at the top of the screen that says:
"********* has chosen not to receive private messages or may not be allowed to receive private messages. Therefore you may not send your message to him/her."
What does this mean? Have they literally turned off their private messaging? Have they added me to their ignore list? Is it a known glitch with the website? (I have seen this could be the case after a Google/forum search).
However, I can send and receive messages to/from other users.
Is it possible that it's simply a website glitch and that they also cannot send me PMs anymore? I've checked my settings and my PMs are enabled. The user I am talking to has 0 posts, so I also cannot talk to them in a thread either, and I have no other way of getting a hold of them. (I have their cell phone number, but it's from a different country and I don't seem to be able to get a text message through, unless they're ignoring it or it's not the right number, I don't know for sure. I may try calling them at a later date if anything goes wrong. (We were communicating about our in-progress watch trade). So far they have given me no reason to be worried, but they have received their watches from me, and I have not received his/her watch yet, although the USPS tracking shows it's almost here, it's just really slow and wonky. The user provided me with a lot of proof/credentials including timestamped images of the watch I'm getting in the trade and communication was excellent; so so far until I get the watch I don't have any other reason to be worried and I don't want to jump to conclusions. It's just weird that I can't message them around the time that after they got my watches, and they did not send me a PM saying that they got my watches, but I saw on the tracking that they were delivered to his home. (we shipped each other's watches the same day too).
Also, over 50 of my posts disappeared from my post count.
Any help is appreciated.
