Several of us are receiving the message Folik is over their Private Topic limit.

Where "Folik" is the massage board member's name.

It started acting up when I:
1. turned off PM via site permissions
2. Changed the limits for Admins and Mods for 1000 down to 100
3. Turned PMs back on globally.


At least two of us are seeing the message; me and and User.
I know the message is bogus because I only had 9 messages. I deleted them anyway, but others still see the message when trying to PM me.

Folik is a User on the board and I verified he is only in the User Group and that he has PMs turned on. When I try to PM him I get the message.

Anyone got any ideas?

New information frown

I went back to Site Permissions and changed all the usual groups (Admins, Mods, Users) from 100 to 1001 and all is working again.

I consider this a bug.
(Remember I had cleared my inbox and others were still seeing the message when PMing me.)

What I think is happening is that when you DECREASE the number of allowed PMs, some old state is still hanging around confusing UBB. To fix the problem you must return the count to greater than or equal to the original number (I don't know which) .. I know Greater Than works.
