unable to send a PM
« on: Tuesday 03 April 12 11:50 BST (UK) »
Hi,

I have tried to send a Personal Message to     sylivia silver    but have had the following message sent back.


               PM could not be sent to 'sylivia silver'

               due to the max. PM limit.

Is there a way for an administrator to send a message for me using the e-mail you have on your side of her profile?  She is trying to make contact with Priscilla Donald from Stirling, and I am in contact with her.

Regards

Andrew

Unfortunately this member hasn't made any posts which is why you have gotten the error message- she hasn't been online since last August and we are also unable to send a PM to her.

Andrew, have you tried actually replying to the relevant thread that you've seen her name on? She should be notified of the posting (as long as she hasn't changed her email address) and may well come back online.

If she hasn't made ANY posts then how can Andrew know that he has family in common?

He must have seen her mention Priscilla Donald on one of the boards surely?

Hi Carol,

If you do a Google search using the term Priscilla Donald Stirling one of the top matches is Rootschat. I guess it's not technically a post, but the two names are linked.

Priscilla knows who this lady is and would like to make contact, but what can I do? The lady is an older lady, and may not be as conversant with sites like this as others are. She may have tried to complete a post and given up, I don't know. But some activity is clearly shown.

I would have thought there must be a record of her e-mail address, and cannot understand why it is impossible for someone to let her know that contact is being tried, but I can't do anything about that.

Regards

Andrew

Hi Andrew

Thanks for explaining that- she must have tried putting the Stirling name up in a few places then.

Oh dear-maybe she'll come back on here again in the future- fingers crossed  ;D

Rootschat isn't a forum for tracing living relatives and lost friends. Sylivia silver registered with Rootschat, added an entry to the Surname Interests Table (PRISCILLA DONALD) but never made any actual posts.
http://surname.rootschat.com/sit-surnames.php?letter=P&this_name=PRISCILLA%20DONALD&lang=bnsztiuzrgah

As I mentioned earlier, this means she cannot use PM (Personal Message) system yet- new users usually need 2/3 posts to use this- so there's no way to contact her through Rootschat.

If she has posted similar queries on other sites you might have better luck in making contact on one of them.
