Blank messages

Postby Bromley86 » 20 Sep 2017, 01:19

I joined a game (133831) as Italy. France is likewise a replacement player.

Old France managed to send Old Italy a message successfully. New France has replied 3 times to my messages, but each time they've been blank. They contain the text of my message, as usual with replies, but the section above that where France's message should be is blank.

Perhaps he's just playing with me, which would be fine, but I don't think so. Is there a scenario where he might write and send a message, send it, but somehow the message box loses it? Perhaps if he's not using the English/Latin alphabet?

A lot of players reply at the bottom rather than the top of messages. Have you scrolled down?

Also, yes, if he uses an illegal character, the rest of the message will be blank, however, in that case you wouldn't even see your message. The text editor just stops as soon as it hits an illegal and forgets the rest of the message.

Pretty sure you can be staff sergeant. :)
Personally I'm always ready to learn, although I do not always like being taught.

No idea is so outlandish that it should not be considered with a searching but at the same time a steady eye.
