Private message bug

Posts: 109 Join Date: 5/9/15 Recent Posts
I received an email saying a DhO user sent me a private message, but after logging in the inbox is empty. That's a bug. Should I continue to report such issues when I encounter  them? Tested with newest chrome and tor browser (firefox fork) on osx.

I too received one of these emails, and my inbox is empty. Aside from the "me too", I thought it was worth noting that this happened once before, a year or two ago -- got an email saying there was a private message, which I couldn't find when I logged in.

The email notification claims the message is from one John Cummings; is that the same name others are seeing?

Yep, I just got one too.
Unfortuantely I clicked on the link in the email to login before thinking about it.  Could be attempting to steal logins......

It points to DhO domain, not a phishing one, so it's safe.

I recently received two, the latest supposedly from "John Cummings" too.

Dharma Overground hacked?

That'd be a pointless hack :p

I don't think it's a bug or hacking guys.There a couple of threads about a similar message previously.

Thread 1. Thread 2.

It's just someone ('John Cummings' this time) sending a PM to all users on the site. Though I don't know why the actual message doesn't show up in your inbox.

Daniel Ingram if you're around and see this, it might be worth disabling the option to message all users of the site in the private messaging section, or limit that power to just a few people, so that people stop people getting spooked.

On the positive note, all this traffic through the site is nice. Look at all these new and old faces. Hi everyone! Hope you are practicing well! emoticon

It's a bug, in that no message actually shows up in the inbox.

I'm glad it happened though. I haven't been on this site in years and reading some stuff has put me in a really nice open empty calm space.

Maybe someone is just messing with us emoticon
I can help to investigate this -- I've extensive experience with programming / hacking.

Yes, I got both these not-appearing messages, as well.

Same here; thanks to Richard Louis Corbell and John Cummings, for the memories!
