Using the Message Outbox

The Message Outbox page is dedicated to the sole task of letting you send a private message to another user or group. It is analogous to the "send to user" function of the Message Inbox, or to typing /msg username ... in the Chatterbox, but it provides a simplified interface just for sending private messages. The same underlying function sends the message in each of these cases, so you will see similar behavior in exceptional conditions, such as when the specified recipient does not exist, or if you attempt to send the same message twice.

In the Message Outbox you will see two fields:

  • Say - the text of the message itself
  • To - the username to whom you wish to send the message

Beside the To field is a submit button labeled Tell. When you press this button, the text in Say is sent to the user (or group) specified in To.

If either field is blank, no message is sent.

[perldigious]: A question since I'm ignorant of what's normal for database management... Do admins change column names a lot in databases?
[perldigious]: On occasion my scripts break, because they will do something that seems laregly pointless to me... like in this case, changing a column name from "ABC Category" to "ABC Category Override".
[perldigious]: Being the ignorant one, my initial reaction to that is, "that's sort of a dick move, a lot of people like me expect column names like that to stay the same, why the hell would you change them like that for seemingly no good reason?"
[perldigious]: Or is my irritation/ frustration well founded?
[Corion]: perldigious: That seems to be more the export and likely it's the recipients of that export that like the titles changes
[Corion]: ... "changed"
[Corion]: I usually expect fixed header names, but am sometimes lenient in the order of columns. But changing the report titles often sounds to me as if you are not the sole consument of the export ;)
