Sometimes when I want to write a PM to another member, the system will not allow me to do so It gives me a message saying "Enter a valid username".

Well, whose username can be more valid than Kyle himself ?

It displays his name and picture in a list, but when I select it, I get the above message. I have tried copy/paste, but with the same results.

It happens to some other members as well, not just to Kyle.

What have I missed somewhere alomg the way ?

Thanks

I was told to go to the person's profile, use the email address mentioned in it. But Mona seems to have an easier way.

Hey Esther, Yes, in the past I have done just that... to go to the person's profile page. It just seemed a bit odd to me, but I suppose I have to live with it. :)
Cheers

I had the same problem. I figured I have to double click on the username I want to pm, to add it as a valid username. After I learned this I have not had any issues. Hope this helps.

Thank you Mona. I will certainly try your double click method next time.
Much appreciated.

This has happened to me, Theuns - even yesterday when I was trying to contact a WA member that I know. I just ended up trying it again before I finally was able to make the connection. We may be more advanced regarding computer technology compared to say, 1995! Still glitches quite often occur and seemingly, (as in your case trying to contact Kyle) for now logical reason.

Hang in there, my friend!

Thanks for your comment Jeff.
I will apply the advice given to me and find a workaround for the problem. It's not a trainsmash...just a bit annoying at times. :)

Thanks Loes. I was beginning to think I am just too stupid to work the system :)
