#1456 closed defect (bug) (no action required)

send message to username, improve error message

Reported by: tijmensmit's profile tijmensmit Owned by:
Milestone: 1.5 Priority: minor
Severity: Version:
Component: Core Keywords: compose message, error
Cc: tijmensmit

Description

If you try to compose a message and send it to a user thats not on your friend list the error it shows is "There was an error sending that message, please try again" which isn't really usefull for understanding why it failed.

It would be better if the message would say something like "You can only send messages to people that are on your friend list". Even better would be to allow messages to be send messages to people that aren't on your friend list.

In BP 1.2.3, users can send a PM to anyone without becoming a friend.

I'm guessing the mentioned example is from an older version?
Although I do believe PMs were open as well in BP 1.1 unless I'm mistaken?

Closing for now... please reopen if I'm wrong.
