I am the founder of BOINC@AUSTRALIA and I want to send a message to the Team reference the new Stats box.  The Team has 1343 members but only 29 are coming up in the stats now that you have added the new check box.

 

The error I get when I click the link is :

 

Request-URI Too Long

The requested URL's length exceeds the capacity limit for this server.

I'm afraid something is broken (software bug) on our end. The problem is that the URL for generating a direct message (DM) uses people's IDs that are comma separated: e.g., userids=1,2,3,4,5, etc. With 1300+ users, that URL is just too long for the Web server to handle.

In fact this "Send Private Message to Team members" functionality needs some attention. I'm sorry to say this won't be looked at into the new year. Until then I don't have a good solution for you.

You can contact members individually by going to the Member list, clicking on a username, and sending message. Obviously its impractical to do this for your team.
