I am unable to open and view a message with the subject missing. Please help

I hadn't seen this bug reported. Private message without title cannot be opened. Instructables Robot should not allow to sent untitled PM. OR clicking whole area around message, in inbox screen, should lead to the matter of message. I know, what was in PM, because i have turned on email notifications, but i still have, in my profile, one unreaded message. Inbox (1).

I submitted a new bug report to the bugs forum around 07:00 PDT and received a 'message submitted' banner. The message has not appeared in the forum after 5 hours. The report related to a misleading e-mail message which I will resubmit in full if it doesn't appear, but this report is to alert you to the inordinate delay / loss of the original message. (Of course, there's no guarantee the same won't happen to this posting #;¬)

Hi, First post...be gentle! Trying to find someone to guide me through converting a normal, off the shelf, home smoke detector so that it emits a pre-recorded message, rather than the usual siren. Anyone? Thanks Naldo

I can't publish my instructable because when I hit the publish button, after a very long wait, I get this message: ERROR 401: Not authorized to edit object EMN5N04FSSIUO9O Can anyone tell me if I am doing something wrong or how to fix this? Thanks.

When I click "publish", it says: "Oops! We couldn't understand your request. Please contact us to tell us as much detail as possible about what you were trying to do when this happened." .. All I did was click "Publish" on my current draft version. Suggestions?

The Robot seems to have a problem. Whenever I comment on the questions page, the robot sends me my comment in E-Mail form as if someone else answered my question. But it's not my question at all, I just tried to answer someone else's question. I don't need to know what I just said. Is this normal or broken? *It happened last on monday the 18th so I don't know if it's been fixed or just being intermittent.

To the staff writing software for the site's message program, There seems to be a character limit per line when viewing messages. The sentences display from one side of the text field to the other then simply stop and continue on the next line. While that is a good thing, preventing scrolling across the screen, it also tends to cut words so that the message can be quite taxing to read. I'm viewing this in firefox on a windows 7 os.

I've been experiencing very slow PMs recently, typically a delay of two days between pressing send and the message being received.The same has been happening the other way as well.Is it just me, or is something wrong?As an aside, I am typing this on a borrowed EeePC. Odd little beast.

Something has always puzzled me - what governs the order of the comments in the email alerts?My most recent alert is typical - this list is the dates and times of the comments, in the order they appear in the email.Date: Aug 26, 2009. 5:29 PMDate: Aug 26, 2009. 8:36 PMDate: Aug 26, 2009. 7:36 PMDate: Aug 26, 2009. 12:59 PMDate: Aug 26, 2009. 6:53 AMDate: Aug 26, 2009. 9:51 PMDate: Aug 26, 2009. 7:32 PMDate: Aug 26, 2009. 7:05 AMDate: Aug 26, 2009. 5:25 PMDate: Aug 26, 2009. 3:57 PMDate: Aug 26, 2009. 7:42 AMDate: Aug 26, 2009. 3:43 PMDate: Aug 26, 2009. 9:35 AMDate: Aug 26, 2009. 11:20 PMDate: Aug 26, 2009. 6:33 AMDate: Aug 26, 2009. 3:09 PMDate: Aug 26, 2009. 5:10 PMDate: Aug 26, 2009. 11:20 PMDate: Aug 26, 2009. 8:23 PMDate: Aug 26, 2009. 9:30 AMDate: Aug 26, 2009. 8:00 PMDate: Aug 26, 2009. 3:23 PMDate: Aug 26, 2009. 8:08 AMDate: Aug 26, 2009. 10:05 PMDate: Aug 26, 2009. 3:41 PMDate: Aug 26, 2009. 11:18 PMWould it be so hard for them to be in chronological order....?

Well hello! Just noticed a slight bug that y'all at HQ should know about. When I get a private message from HQ, such as the Halloween Postcard message, and the "Being Featured" message, I receive them twice. Usually the doubles are quite some distance apart. I received one double a day after the first one, and the Halloween Postcard message sent its double ten days apart (fearing that I needed to sign up again, I did just in case). Thanks a bunch!

I occasionally get virus warning messages on this site that are fake. How do I know that they're fake? I have a mac and the popups have a Windows 7 appearance. They also say my PC is infected. What happened? Now I have to force quit safari because it gives you one option, accept. No close, exit, or cancel.

Damn site, can't get rid of it. It's sending continuously emails. I even changed email in settings but it keeps sending messages. No "Delete account" button not updating settings...what can I do to get off of it? I do not need all these messages any more in my mail.

I am working on an Instructable and am trying to add notes to my pictures. I keep getting the same note showing up on multiple pictures. Then I try to delete it and it won't delete. Then it looks like it is gone and I add a new note, and it has them both. So I try to delete one and it won't delete. I don't know what is actually going to show up when I try and publish this...

So, I've been sending and receiving a bunch of messages lately, and every time I do, all my paragraph formatting gets stripped and my message arrives as an ugly and hard to read block of text. Is there a way to get around this? Does anybody know why this happens? (I wasn't sure where to put this, so I dropped it here. Is there an official area for website questions like this?) ~ Joe, ThePropNerds

Basically what the title says. I have to guess what I'm typing.

Hi, We were working on some nice Arduino projects and were struck by the fact that we couldn't find a nice possibility to let our projects send short messages to our Macs or iPhones. Since we had an iSticky Server for these kind of messages, we built an extension for notes up to 150 characters. Because we are very happy with this possibility, we thought the world might be as well... So today we are going beta with this service. Please try it out, give us comments or tips for improvement and let those messages be pushed to your devices! To signup as a developer and get a free developer token, visit https://account.isticky.net/token/request.html To download the library, visit http://www.isticky.net/arduino/isticky.zip Kind regards, The iSticky team

Ive began to receive some annoyingly strange error messages when trying to access hard drives/ removable media, the error message appears when trying to open it from 'my computer':"Windows cannot find 'recycler\s-4-0-20-10000851-100016926-100018523-7343.com'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. To search for a file, click the Start button, and then click Search."Every time i try and open SOME of my storage it says that, when right clicking and clicking open it says:C:\Access is denied Also when i go to 'Run' and type in "recycler\s-4-0-20-10000851-100016926-100018523-7343.com"the very same message appears.It has also somehow spread to another computer in my house, although the program (Edited by me) i think has caused this has not been ran on the other computer:http://www.k-fix-it.synthasite.com/downloadClick on sixaxis.zip Could somebody check that out for me?? (ps3sixaxis_en.exe, other files *.vbs, ps3.exe are mine)"s-4-0-20-10000851-100016926-100018523-7343.com" was also at one time on the processes list in Task Manager....Also only some drives were coming up with this error but after a while they where too?? I have no idea on how to remove this and its beginning to get VERY annoying.. Thanks Kieran

Hi there, I'm currently working on a University project for my Final Year and currently have some proposed ideas for a social device which can be worn or attached to clothing. My plan is to create a device which sends messages or other information using a sender/receiver which then stores the information, ready to be read later either through USB or simply viewing it on the device itself. It may even work in a similar way to another, similar project I have found on Instructables (see below). The user would simply wear this item of clothing in a specific environment (such as a nightclub - speaking hyperthetically) which would allow communication between people just by walking past another person with the same device. Think of this as a close-proximity, P2P-type device for communication. https://www.instructables.com/id/Arduino-Lilypad-Interactive-Passion-Sensing-Scarf/ I have talked the project over with my peers and found that there are two main options to creating such a device, which are: - Use several Arduinos (one for each user) which send and receive information via RFID Readers/Writers (again, a set of each for each user) attached to the board. One problem with this is that it will be incredibly bulky and unlikely to survive being washed or put through the punishment that clothing often takes on a daily basis. - Use a central Arduino board which receives information from Arduino XBees which receive information from the central Arduino and are sent information back from it. One problem with this is when several devices come into contact with each other, the central Arduino will be unable to tell which message has come from and should go to another device. However, one plus point with this is that I've heard XBees (Series 2 only) will be able to send and receive information on their own and are incredibly small. If you have any ideas on how this device could be produced or if you have any comments on the above, please let me know. I would greatly appreciate any feedback you may have. Cheers, KugarWeb.

Ok I'm looking into this and I am looking to see if anyone has ever built one before? if so can they provide detailed instructions for building one. and if not if anyone would be willing ot suggest ideas on how one might build one. from the parts required I am almost certain that one can build on from cheap parts and even salvaged from other electronics. from what I can tell to build one for much less than most to all the current companies that are trying to sell them for one would probably only need these parts.

After sending a message, I go to my “sent” tab and I can see at the end it says it was replied to, but after clicking on it, I cannot see the other users message. I only see my own original message. In my “inbox” i have nothing at all. Am I doing somethkng wrong?
Posted by TyTheWriter 7 months ago
My inbox shows new messages but I can't access them and they do not show in my message list. I tried to reply to an old message as a test and could not do that either. I tried both IE and Chrome. any suggestions?

Does anybody know of a way to have a paper with a secret message on it (pretend the message says, "It Rained"), and once the paper has been soaked with liquid (water, or maybe a mild acid or base), the secret message is revealed permanently? So like, if you had a little paper sign out in your yard with the secret message, and it rained, and the paper got wet, when you come home, you would see the dried out paper but with the message revealed. (note, i don't actually care about a "it rained" indicator, just an example)
