Question about sending pm's

25 replies 322 views Edited Apr 18, 2013

I know there's a option to click on someone's username and send a message but how do I do it manually without having to click on the person to send a private PM through home? I tried writing their name followed by a space then a message, but they didn't get it. Am I missing something here?

You're missing /pm

 

You'll need to put /pm PSNID Type your message for it to send succesfully.

Don't forget you can't do that in the Pottermore spaces as they're Local Chat only.

Whoa! You can PM people that aren't in the same space and aren't in the current chat screen? That's cool! I never knew that.

 

So, basically is it like this:

 

/pm Anton_Xul Random text here?

Yep, that should do it... although, I'm not sure if you can /PM yourself. hehe

Even if you're not in Pottermore spaces, yourself, if the recipient of the /PM IS in a Pottermore space, they won't receive it either, if I'm not mistaken.

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).

The /pm method also works across regions,.. say for instance if you have a friend on the UK server & your on the NA server, you can still chat back & forth by using this.
