    That's weird and shouldn't be happening. Is there any consistency around when it does / doesn't happen? Is it after you hit the send button and you are redirected to the page you started on?

    I get that message when I PM sonew123

    This message comes up after I send her a PM
    When I go to sent messages I can see the message I just sent her.

    I get the same message from that link too and it is definitely odd that the system would try to redirect you after sending a PM. We'll look into it.

    I'm still get the message

    " Bad request. The link you followed is incorrect or outdated."

    I only get this message when I'm sending a PM to someone from the message center.

    That's pretty odd. Which web browser and version are you using?

    What are the exact steps you are going through? Are you replying to a PM? Are you clicking on a PM link from a page or from their profile? Walk us through the exact steps and the exact pages and we'll try to duplicate it.

    Thanks!

    I use explorer 8 for the browser.

    from messages
    I open up a message and instead of reply I goto PM under their avatar to send them a message
    after message is sent the message pops up like it would if their box was full.
    however, if I go to sent messages it shows up that it went through.

    That is very helpful, thanks! I think there may be an issue with the system trying to redirect you back to a topic in the forum, but it didn't know you were clicking from a message and not the forum.

    We'll see if we can fix that.

    Thanks!

    I thought I was losing my mind.

    I would send a PM and think...where was I? I thought I was in my message center.

    PHEW.
