Default Private Messages Not Getting Through?

I've private messaged several different QB members over the last couple of months and never hear back. Is it possible that my private messages aren't getting through "cyber space"? Anyone else wondering the same thing? I don't mean to complain or necessarily need a response, but if I'm responding to another member and my message doesn't get through, I must look awfully rude!

A good reminder for members to clean out their message boxes.

I agree here. It could be that their box is full & they need to delete some in order to make space for new messages. You could also try with a new thread that will allow you to get in touch with them here on the board just simply asking them if they got your p.m. Maybe then they would check their box.

I've had some that have replied months later. A lot of mine don't get answered at all. Some haven't been "active" since before I actually messaged them.

I was thinking that if the message box was full, that it would notify the sender that it was "full."

Just in case you don't know how to delete messages.

When you go to private messages, go a couple of lines down from where it says empty folder and there is a drop down box that you can choose what category to look at. Go down the list and click on the box to the right of the ones you don't want. Go all the way to the bottom. There's another drop down box to decide what to do with those that are checked. Scroll down and Click on Delete and then click GO which is right next to it to the right. Be aware that all checks you have put by messages will go away. It will give you a count of how many you are deleting.
