Technical Question?

      Original post

      I was just wondering if anyone could answer a sort of technical question for me.

      There is a Forum poster who was going to buy my extra ticket for Paul's concert in Milwaukee.

      I have the ticket now and I have private messaged him the last 2 days, with no response. I went into my "sent" box and the messages don't appear there.
      So, I went to the forums and found a post by him where he was looking for a ticket for Indianapolis. I replied publicly to him saying I had the ticket for Milwaukee, could he please message me. I didn't hear anything, so went back to look in the forum and now his post is gone.
      There is no easy way to look someone up in the membership list.

      Anyone know if maybe when everything disappears that person has deleted their account?

      If he doesn't want the ticket, I'd like to try and sell it to someone else before I go on vacation for the 2 weeks before the concert on July 16.

      Thanks for your help!

        The stuff in the sent box are those messages that have been read by the person you sent it to. In your outbox are those messages that have not been read yet. Like I have one in there to love2travel that she has not read. (check your PMs everybody!) So, are the PMs in your outbox then?

          Well, don't *I* feel stupid!!!
          Yes, the OUTBOX. Sheesh...never even noticed that.

          And yes, all my private messages are there.

          Hopefully, I'll get an answer from him soon.

          Thanks much fellow Nancy! ops:
