    This PM thing has been bad for months, now. Is this just the way things are now; is it a glitch or what? Just takes forever to send a message most of the time. Very, very frustrating.

    I haven't had much trouble with it until today with the rest of the site being slow. I thought it was our net last week before we got it worked on. Guess not for once.

    Timing out today and also getting this:

    Your submission could not be processed because a security token was missing.

    If this occurred unexpectedly, please inform the administrator and describe the action you performed before you received this error.

    Having sporadic problems this week too. Some messages go right through, but others hang and eventually time out without sending, unlike before when they eventually would go through. Hmm...

    Edit: Seems to be working better for me now, as of Saturday night. We'll see if it continues...

    All of these issues are somewhat random and happening sporadically, as a result, we are having a tough time figuring out exactly what is happening.

    The consistently slow PM issue appears to be only certain members (other than it happening when the forum is slow overall for everyone), and we are still trying to figure that out as well. I happen to be one of those members that it is happening to, so I feel your pain. :)

    It's maddening man.

    Over the years, I've come to use the RPF's PM feature as my primary means of communication with other collectors, here. I have some concerns that my messages are not always being delivered and vice versa.

    Most people aren't going to just sit there and wait for the message to go through. Mine time out constantly from multiple computers.

    Mine are acting up tonight as well. I'm used to the slow, but this just sorta hangs on the "sending" part and just... well, sits.

    After a few minutes it will actually pop back to the inbox.

    Dunno if it helps, but using chrome.

    Whoa ! My apologies to the folks who have within the past 10 minutes gotten, like, the same PM 20 times from me.

    Mine are just timing out over and over today. I'm also getting "Security token is missing" once the screen rolls over.

    So... Pm's. Slow as christmas. Used to a little bit of a delay but today is something on the realm of 5 mins and counting to send.

    We just rebuilt/re-indexed the tables. This may help in the short-term, but we are going to have an expert in vbulletin look at this specific issue because we have been unable to track down the reason for it.

    I am absolutely experiencing the slow PM thing. VERY frustrating.

    In other news, I did manage to send roughly 10 copies of a message in my attempts to get it sent though. :)

    At least some of them are getting through - though I got 3 copies of the same message - dont know how many my recipient got - but the PM system was hanging up for me too today.

    Slowsville across the board it looks like :(

    Just as a heads up, you can check your sent folder to make sure the pm's left the building.

    I had one hang up this morning, but turns out it actually was sent.

    Had the same problem with PM from 2 members here, from each of them I received 5 identical PM's :D Maybe it happened the same when I replied to them, to receive 5 PM's from me each.

    Yup, same here with the PM's and now posting in threads is taking forever.

    I did notice something, not sure if it will be of any help, but I noticed that
    when I hit the submit button it does seem to go through, it's just not redirecting
    me to the correct page. It just sits there like I have dial-up <-----:facepalm

    Since earlier today, every time I receive a PM, I get varying amounts of duplicates in my inbox of the exact same PM.

    I'm having the same problem. Not complaining, just thought you guys may need a running tally of how many people this is happening to.

    In that case, the issue you are having is something different than what others are experiencing.

    Then it's an issue on multiple computers in different locations for me. I use my phone, my laptop, a desktop and the computer in my shop. Not so much today, but in general.

    I've had a couple messages go through okay this evening, but some are still hanging. Earlier today, same issues though.

    What Art meant was that it's specific to your account not your computer.

    I just tried a couple PMs to you, Art.

    2 went though like lightning. Faster than I've seen in some time. Right now, it looks good. :thumbsup

    Well, that would suck! Just tried it and it seems to be behaving. Perhaps it knows we're talking about it. :confused
