I keep trying to send a message to a user, Dev, by clicking on his name and going to "send private message." However, it keeps going to a different user with the name Dev. Is it possible that there is a duplicate in your database that is causing this issue?

Thanks,

Jared

No, there is only one user.

Can you send me the profile page you're using to send the PM?

Profile of the user I want to send to

Profile of user who is getting my messages

Steve, I did not message from the profile directly. I simply clicked on the user name in a forum and selected the "send private message" link, which it seems just inserts the username into the To: portion of a message.

EDIT:fixed links

Thanks,

Hi Steve,

Any updates? You can clearly see that the display name is the same for each user.

Thanks,

My apologies, this slipped off my radar this morning.

The issue is the person you were trying to send to had a name of " Dev" (pre-pended space) and the other person was "Dev". The latter is an older account, so I changed it to Dev2.

You should be able to send to "Dev" now.
