Tech team: could the PM box be made bigger?

Hi, I don’t know about anyone else, but I find that little box you have to type into for a PM is really too small.

And if you scroll up to read what you’ve written you can very easily delete the lot, which is really frustrating.

Any chance of having it made bigger please?

It took me ages to realise, but you can make it bigger yourself. Bottom right hand corner is “draggable”.




Ah! I had no idea!!!

I’ve been typing into that tiny space for all this time.

Thanks Tina,

I agree Tina. I’ve been using that tiny letterbox thing since we had the new site… very annoying… esp if like me, you have to proof read everything as so many mistakes.

I used to work in admin & could type 65 wpm error-free!

Which brings me onto another moan… spell checker on this site. I wish we had one. I am always having to type words into the search engine thingy at top to check spelling.

And your double post seems to have disappeared…

Tina your second post has now disappeared altogether… … did I imagine it?

No, you didn’t imagine it - the mods are quite efficient at tidying up accidental duplicates! :wink:

Oops, no, I see what you mean. It’s not just the duplicate that’s gone! Must be this ongoing anti-spam issue everyone is moaning about. Several people have said posts “disappeared”, but it’s the first time it’s happened to me.

I thought stuff flagged as suspicious might go in a queue for moderation, but I didn’t expect things already successfully posted - and replied to - to disappear again.

I didn’t think there was anything remotely spammy, did you? The filter seems to work in mysterious ways, that’s for sure.

Innocuous posts disappear without warning, but the galley spam (See, I avoided the K-word word) still seems to get through uncensored.
