Postby diane o'thirst » Thu Dec 07, 2006 12:17 am

Been getting alerts that I have a private message waiting; then when I go to my Inbox it says there are no messages.

Did you get the PM I sent you yesterday? If not than that was from a PM I tried to send ya. I have had the same thing happen to me once or twice in the past.

It's not there. I got the private message alert in my e-mail's inbox, clicked the link, came here, the pop-up box came up, clicked on that, and there's nothing in the site Inbox. But the links at the top of this page says I have 1 new message.

Nope. Clicked it, Inbox came up, said I have no new messages.

Maybe someones out to get me and doesnt want me sending PMs to just anyone. I was curious about the cold casting of metals. I had asked if you knew of any good books where I can teach myself this process. Even any websites you know of would be greatly appreciated.

Don't know any books or websites, so I'm probably not the one to ask. I'm mostly going on what I learnt during my special effects apprenticeship. He taught me how to make hydrocal molds and various casting materials and techniques. Haven't done it in years and pretty much all I know is it's 75% metal or stone powder, 25% cured resin, maybe some microbeads for filler/extender.

If the pm is from a spammer and deleted, you get that effect.
But PMs are not reliable.
I would urge anyone to enable email and use that as much as possible.
I have had no problem due to email being enabled.
I have had PMs vanish out of storage.

Most recent pm from spammer did not vanish when he was blocked.
Don't know why.

It would be a shame if I had to resort to self-deception to preserve my faith in objective reality.

I've gotten a couple new message notices too and there hasn't been any. Then I just got a message from someone with no posts yet saying they were new here. Could that be a spammer?

If they wrote about something specific, maybe not.
Did they include a commercial link?
Sometimes there is just one in the profile, but it's usually obvious.
