It doesn't leve the outbox until the recipient actually opens the message. I was confused by this too :)
Yes, correct until message is read it remains in outbox. I still have many unread messages :) .
Ok, that's a bit confusing... but also helpful because now I know that he has opened my message. :D
Thanks :)

Good afternoon,

Despite broad forum experience, I have not succeeded in adding a location to my profile, although I see that many members managed to do so.

How do you do that?

By the way, I found it very unsympathetic that during registration I was labelled as a spammer, just because my VPN happened to be on.

Welcome to TeaForum @Léon. Looking forward to seeing your introduction here. To add your location go to User Control Panel/Profile/Location on upper right of the page where your name appears. Sorry, we have strong anti-spam protocols here to avoid being inundated with junk.

"To add your location go to User Control Panel/Profile/Location".

That's the problem: I was there 20 times, but I still don't see Location.

an anthropomorphization! machines are neither sympathetic nor unsympahtetic. try not to take it personally.

i'm sorry that you fell on the wrong side of one of life's many compromises. if i could reduce or eliminate false positives, believe me, i would. thank you for taking the trouble to persevere and register nonetheless.

Edit profile (above Edit signature) is missing, I think.

thank you for reporting this bug (misconfiguration). before now, users with less than a few posts could not access profile settings. it should be fixed. but it's also irrelevant in your case because you've already made a few posts at this point and have automatically gained access to the feature. however, you have helped new users in the future by reporting this.

maybe there should be a bug bounty program here that pays out in tea. :lol:

Okidoki, pedant,

So it worked after all.

This seems to be a forum with instructions.

One more word about the spam accusation during registration:

First came a captcha (very irritating invention).

After I had proved that I was not a robot (!), a very unfriendly comment came along, something like "This soup is not going to be eaten by you, because you are a spammer".

On a radio forum which I often visit, they say in such a case (VPN on): "You are banned until 2049".

That sounds a lot funnier and less unfriendly!

@Léon, i moved the discussion here since it's off topic in the introduction topic.

i agree that the message displayed to the user is stupid. i didn't compose that myself.
