VERY Strange discussions about difficulty sending PMs

Having drafted a PM, I get the following message when I click the 'send' button:-

"Bonk. Something funky happened. Please bear with us while we iron out the kinks."

Have tried a few times.

    Huh. Just sent you one and it worked fine for me.
  • LegoboyLegoboy 100km furtherMember Posts: 8,695
    Replied to you and it worked.

    Tried to start a new with Sav and failed again. I dunno?
  • princedravenprincedraven Essex, UKMember Posts: 3,768
    No idea why (obviously), but gotta say that is a nice error message.
    Much better than your standard, Error 643453: Reference stack memory protocal failure type from Windows.
  • LostInTranslationLostInTranslation UKMember Posts: 5,500
    I remember it did that to me once but fixed itself fairly quickly.
    I like the funky message too - Huw's handiwork or Vanilla's? :)

    Tried to send you a message, but got bonked as well. Shall I take that to mean you want WCB if they have them? ;)
  • ChompersChompers Member Posts: 648
    Yep, same thing happening to me!!! BONK

    To quote the Sunnydale High School motto, "Something weird is going on". Just went to my inbox to try and PM @chompers again and the message appears to have gone through twice, despite "bonking" me both times I tried to send it.
  • princedravenprincedraven Essex, UKMember Posts: 3,768
    I think its gone a bit BONK'ers!

    Get it?

    BONK, ers!

    Oh, forget it!! :)
  • LegoboyLegoboy 100km furtherMember Posts: 8,695
    Are you drunk??
  • LostInTranslationLostInTranslation UKMember Posts: 5,500
    ^^ Oh, erm, yeah, nice one Geoff.
    Say, is that tumbleweed?

    ^^^ Forgoten ;)

    ^ No PM LIT, lets try tomorrow after our esteemed admin team sort it out :)
  • LostInTranslationLostInTranslation UKMember Posts: 5,500
    ^ Really? Rubbishio! :-(

    There's something strange in the neighborhood... who ya gonna call? @Huw!!
    (doesn't have the same ring to it, I know, but I was originally going to put Bonk-busters, but that made me think of Jackie Collins and Jilly Cooper ...*shudder*)
  • LegoboyLegoboy 100km furtherMember Posts: 8,695
    Is everyone off their head???
  • ChompersChompers Member Posts: 648
    Too many glasses of vino LIT, your mind is elsewhere. Have to say "BONK" is an od term to use!!!
  • ChompersChompers Member Posts: 648
    ^^ looks that way for sure
  • LegoboyLegoboy 100km furtherMember Posts: 8,695
    An 'online bonking session'. Gotta be the first in a forum full of nerds! :o)
  • LostInTranslationLostInTranslation UKMember Posts: 5,500
    Haven't I told you before, I'm a geek not a nerd? There's a semantic nuance there that must be respected.

    This thread is sooo toasted...
  • LegoboyLegoboy 100km furtherMember Posts: 8,695
    *Cough* Anybody still having trouble with their PMs? I am!
  • LostInTranslationLostInTranslation UKMember Posts: 5,500
    Moi aussi :-)
  • sirrich69sirrich69 Member Posts: 452
    I thought you were all bonkers.

    Just tried to send a PM to @flump6523 as a test and I was also bonked!!

    It is the 12th night,do strange things happen on the 12th night apart from people taking down their chrimbo decorations.
  • sirrich69sirrich69 Member Posts: 452
    Update.

    It looks like my test message to @flump6523 has gone as it is showing in my inbox.

    @Flump have you recieved a PM from me?
  • LegoboyLegoboy 100km furtherMember Posts: 8,695
    edited January 2012
    No sir. Any pms I've created today have been bonked. They all appear in my 'Inbox' although the only member party to the discussion is me. Does your pm to me suggest I'm part of it?

    Edit:- Strangely though, I've been able to continue a discussion somebody else has managed to start. Go figure!?

    ^^ it's messing with you Rich!! I thought mine had got thru to Chompers as it showed in my inbox but he says no dice.
  • sirrich69sirrich69 Member Posts: 452
    ^ yes same for me

    ^^ yes definately sent you a PM as a test. Exactly as Lost is indicating.
  • LegoboyLegoboy 100km furtherMember Posts: 8,695
    ^ ....and it says I'm part of that discussion?
  • ChompersChompers Member Posts: 648
    Still getting "bonked" trying to send a message to LIT and nothing to do with the 12th night, took mine down last night.
  • LostInTranslationLostInTranslation UKMember Posts: 5,500
    Success!!! I've just had a PM come thru from Chompers!
  • ChompersChompers Member Posts: 648
    Yay, at last!!! got there in the end.
  • sirrich69sirrich69 Member Posts: 452
    flump6523
    test
    1 message 9:39PM

    The text above is a copy from my inbox.

    If I open the discussion I started.

    At the top it says the following, flump6523 and you.

    One for @Huw to sort.
  • LegoboyLegoboy 100km furtherMember Posts: 8,695
    All good other than I don't get the red filter over the 'Inbox'.
  • LostInTranslationLostInTranslation UKMember Posts: 5,500
    And they all lived happily ever after in a land filled with Lego... :)
  • sirrich69sirrich69 Member Posts: 452
    I can confirm I had a filter over the inbox ( with 1 in it) from the message I just received from you and a message on the screen for a couple of seconds saying you had sent me a message.

    Strange!!
  • MatthewMatthew Cheshire, UKAdministrator Posts: 3,734
    I had no '1' on my inbox, but I checked it anyway, and I had 3 duplicates. After I'd left I had a '1' on my inbox and a 4th duplicate.... Beat's me what's going on, it's Vanilla who sort this stuff out (they've fixed the search BTW).
  • LostInTranslationLostInTranslation UKMember Posts: 5,500
    @Matthew, it's twelfth night, you have to take your Santa hat off by midnight!!

    ^ I've lost the old one... New year, time for change?
    EDIT: Happy now? :o) I'll have to sort out something better for tomorrow.
  • LostInTranslationLostInTranslation UKMember Posts: 5,500
    ^ That's the spirit! Maybe I should change mine too...?
  • SupersympaSupersympa SwedenMember Posts: 534
    I tried to send a message to @duchessa and I have been "bonked"
  • princedravenprincedraven Essex, UKMember Posts: 3,768
    woo hoo, more Bonking!
  • DuchessaDuchessa Member Posts: 287
    Hey, I never bonked anyone! :-D
  • pantboypantboy EnglandMember Posts: 210
    I have been trying to send a message to @Savage_Steel but keep getting bonked.
  • SupersympaSupersympa SwedenMember Posts: 534
    no @duchessa, you have not been bonked, but I was, when i tried to send you a message! ;)
  • MinifigsMeMinifigsMe Member Posts: 2,844
    Can you reply to our original conversation?
  • DuchessaDuchessa Member Posts: 287
    @Supersympa - I just got all of your messages (three identical of the first one, and the last one). So it seems to be working now.
  • pantboypantboy EnglandMember Posts: 210
    ^^ Just tried, i think it went OK.
  • LostInTranslationLostInTranslation UKMember Posts: 5,500
    Weirdness still abounds, I see...
  • CapnRex101CapnRex101 United KingdomAdministrator Posts: 2,263
    I've seen messages like that but not here on Brickset, my personal favourite was something like... KABOOM!!! The file was so massive that we couldn't handle it and now the machine's exploded. I hope you're happy, come back later when we've patched it up.
