LOL - I can't believe I've never thought to try it before!  Well, I just did and I'm sad to report that you can't talk to yourself in Home. Smiley Sad  It tells you: "You can't send a Personal message to yourself".

Re: Question about sending pm's

Apr 18, 2013

I used to have so much fun with that when my girlfriend was living with me. Sitting on the same couch I could see the usual default troll doing the dance on her , pm or other childish behavior. Sent the guy guy a pm and we we're both laughing watching his avater trying to find me Smiley Wink

 

On a side note... I occasionnaly use that feature sending th pm to a non-existent ID, usually /pm notetomods before reporting someone if I feel some additional info can be usefull. I'm pretty sure it shows oin the chat log on the report but I'm not totally sure, Any insight on that anyone?

Ugg. Don't you hate it when you don't notice a typo until someone else quotes you? It should be "I'm NOT sure if you can /PM yourself" *sigh*  Thanks for testing this for everyone, though. Good to know!

Oh, I bet that would work! But I have no idea how we could test it for sure. Also, that might work for *note to self* idea mentioned before this post.

Thanks for taking the time to reply guys. yeah i heard about it not working in any of the pottermore spaces. thanks again.


Couple things to keep in mind, you only need to type /P PSN-ID.  

 

Also, even if you are not in Pottermore, if the person you are trying to PM is in those spaces they wont see your message - and neither of you will get any kind of alert message letting you know your message was not received.  Same thing if you are in the Pottermore spaces and try and send a PM to someone who is not in Pottermore, they still wont receive it, and you wont get an alert message informing you they did not get it.  (same goes for group and club chat as well).


Nice PRO-TIP! One letter may not seem like much, but if you use it a lot it could add up.

I believe you will also need to use a colon after the PSN ID. There are spaces between PM & ID and ID & colon So it would look like this ....  /pm PSN_ID : place message here . I haven't tried lately but I use to be able to send myself a /pm just to test if I was doing it correctly.

Not to anyone in particular, but does anyone ever read the tips and hints that we have as we wait for a space to load? There is information on how to use the chat functions.
