      This is a first for me . Ever since I was a CC owner . I was used to various multi media and messaging glitches . Many of them . Meaning I had less options than others . Or less than I should .

      So yesterday I received a PM from one of the " TRAILBLAZERS " . Thanking me for the trophy . I thought . I didn't know I knew this person . I looked through my friend list . Nope not there .

      I clicked on to their profile . All it had was

      What ? So how the hell did they PM me ?So I messaged back .

    " pdb1 wrote:

    I'm curious . How were you able to PM me ? Have we met before ? Don't see you on my friends list . But would like to .

    " they wrote:

    I believe I just went to your profile page and was able to send you a message?? Yes that is curious...

    "*"*"*"*"*"*

      Like I said . This is a first for me . Although I am not able to do the same . I am not complaining . I think it is nice not to have to friend to PM message me .

      Has this happened to others ?

      Another case in point . Gary confirms he sees the full message block with the ability to message me on my profile .

    I actually wonder if this is a feature or option granted to Owners and / or Directors that regular members may not have.

    I believe it would explain things.  

    Maybe an option or feature for CC owners but not for directors, I don't have it. 

      No chance gentlemen . Improving the current multi media system is the furthest thing from their minds .

      Most of the members responding and confirming this are not owners or directors .

      This is my second response since borntobesting's .

      As I impatiently wait for my moderated post . I want to remind you all of the mess the multi media and messaging system on this site is . The millions of dead , abandoned , false , duplicate , multiple , unmaintained accounts . Kept to show the world their massive user list .The data mess there is beyond correcting . It is so corrupt we are lucky to be able to message at all .

      Just going over the 1 byte 256 limit by 2 or 5 friends can completely disrupt the messaging functions . I was one who ignored the warnings and exceeded the limit by hundreds . When I finally reduced it . When I became a CC owner . Which I am no longer . It only barely helped . My account was permanently corrupt . Could not group message ( add recipients to a message ). Could not message to all .Other owner permissions affected as well .

      According to member services these were common owner glitches that they had been aware of for years . Likely our accounts were permanently corrupted .

      I didn't believe them then that they took it seriously . Just like I do not believe that now they have modified the owners or owners / directors accounts in this or any way .

    el3n1:
    Could be something in settings or permissions allowed by owners for directors.

      It is not . Nor ever has been an option in the permissions to enable messaging without friending .

      As I said . Regular members are able to message me .

      It is a glitch .

    JDGHOST:
    I checked other non friends to see but its only you?....You must be pretty darn important !! 😜

      Yes . That's it . Lol . Except I am not able to do it in return .

      You all obviously aren't going to give any credence to what I have said . And continue to defend the infallible WGT as though this was done intentionally . I probably have the old member services responses that admit they have no clue about how to fix the messaging glitches .

    What is the status of this " email all members ".
    I am getting zero responses . I now have PM's with all members . I do not believe that forum posts reach many . Am still at a loss to try to find a way to contact my CC . After years of emailing or posting on walls individually .( Which isn't working either ) . I do not understand what about this you don't find as a priority . With the high turn over of CC ownership because of issues like this and the fact that you refuse to add even 1 more admin permission to the CC's . It's a wonder the CC program is working at all . I'm just saying . Please help .

    ^<^<^<^<^<^<^<

      It has now been 5 hours since I first replied to borntobesting . I was at Walmart for 2 of those hours . Came back and still no posts . Wonder what the mods do all day . Bong hits ?

    I believe it would explain things.

      No it is not . When I was an owner . I had many features not available to me . I was told by member services for years that these were problems with some CC owners profiles . And they were working on it . For years .

    it took 9 hours for this post to show

    Could be something in settings or permissions allowed by owners for directors.

    While I have not been a permanent director, I was temporarily asked to stand in for a director during some Clashes when available and it does present me with that option when I visited his profile page.  -- Yet it is not consistent with all players... so something is odd about it.

    There may be other factors but I believe I noticed Gary was also a director when I checked to see if that was a common factor.  Not saying it is the only factor.
