Using Contact Us to contact GR

If you click on Help, contact us, there is the option of sending a message to GR via feedback.

Once you have typed your message there is a Preview Message Option. When you have previewed your message?????????!!!

How do you send it.

I found a tiny little purple dash at the bottom of my message. No name on it. I clicked on it, the screen went blank, and I was returned to the home page.

Now I have a problem. Did I send my message or was it consigned to cyber space.

I must be missing something. The submit button, that is what is missing.

The submit button was missing a few days ago and I did the same as you clicked on the little purple dash

I mentioned this in

Ryan said he was going to get it looked at ;-)

But yes, I think the messages do get submitted if you click on that purple bit.....or at least that worked for me

Stupid Dash is still there as I have had to contact GR over the ERROR message from trying to delete a "WATCHED THREAD""

It's a bleddy joke is this site now.

I know the dash works Sue because they have responded to my enquiry. Well something responded because I have a message back.
