I don’t know if this is a bug or a feature, but because something unexpected happends I’m counting it as a bug
I tried send a private message to myself, mostly because of drafts fail sometime. Composer nagged to me if I forgot add an other recepient because I was sending to me. I closed it and everything was fine.
Except I can’t find that private message anywhere. It vanished totally.
I add topic name and a new tag too.
When I pressed Send Discourse tell me it can’t create tag. That is another issue, because if I can’t create new tag, even I’m admin, the composer should not offer creating a tag at all.
My forum is updated last night (my local time and is 2.9.0.beta2 38cbca3f67
(Now DiscourseHub is showing one unread topic, but not new messages. It is propably different thing because Hub does that every now and then, Only solution for that is deleting forum from Hub and re-connecting; really annoying because I can’t drag forums to order I want)
And… I realize now I should try if same happends here too. I’ll do it right away.
Nope. I can’t send a private massage to myself here either. It sends, but disappearing. Is this just another user error?
If a message doesn’t show at inbox it is nearly unusable. There is one reason why I (or someone else) am using that: drafts. Everytime when some is asking if there any chance to save more than one draft the answer is send a PM to yourself.
UX-wise sended PM must show up on (at? I really dislike prepositions ) inbox, even when sender is same as recipient. And when a user uses a lot PM finding relevant message is much harder when it is burried in sendbox.
Sure, this is not high priority question. But it should be fixed at some point and then there is just two options:
recipient can’t be same as sender (and that is not an option, if I’m right, because it will break CCs of group messages too?)
sended message goes to inbox as expected
There is door #3 too: allowing more than one draft
