    Aha!   I've just got that error message that you posted, and that is because I put the code into the dev tools console window on a forum page.

    NOTE : The code HAS to be entered on the friends page that has the send message button missing.

    Copy and paste does work, shouldn't make any difference with the bold text though.

     Just an FYI .

    YankeeJim:

    JDGHOST:
    BTW... NONE of these members have over 250 friends as I thought of that as well...

    But you have 252. The theory is that 255 is supposed to be the max without inducing issues, 256 being a big number for a computer, but I have always treated 250 as the number.

    Lose a couple of old contacts and see if it improves.

      Technically you're right . It is a theory . A theory used to count bits & bytes in a computer .

      Having been there before .   Originally when I reduced mine to 255 . Most things presumably worked again .

      It doesn't matter if you have 249 , 250 , 252 , 255 . The friends list can contain 1 BYTE , or 256 friends . Less is inconsequential . More will cause problems .

    • 1 byte is group of 8 bits
    • 8 bits can make 256 different patterns

      .1 Byte == 256

    jacktrade51:
    In relation to Jim's post above, I always thought 255 was the number where the ability to send messages gets blocked.  (Note … we can still use pre-existing threads.)

      Yes Tom . The more friends one has above 256 the more the messages get ( lost ) .

      But in your messages storage . That doesn't have a limit . One can message anyone they messaged in the past .

    jacktrade51:
    they keep showing up on my page.

    Did you check your " OWNERS TOOLS " ? For confirmation before joining ?

    jacktrade51:
    Blocking someone who has never done anything harmful is an insult

      Not if you are the boss . And have set your limit . Don't give it another thought . I'm sure your over it already .

    Ah....computers are very fussy about syntax, only takes a mistyped or wrong case character to screw things up.

    Try typing this in to see if the console returns a line of code in response, rather than an error...

    document.querySelector("div")

    It won't shown any buttons, I just want to get some code working.

    This is what he gets when trying ......document.querySelector("div")

     

    <div id="optanon" class="modern">...</div>

    Good, now we're getting somewhere.

    Okay, now try this...

    document.querySelector("#send_message_link")

    ...that has to be entered on the 'friend with the missing send message button' page.
