Private messages stay in Outbox even after 10 days

(Formerly the "Support, Feedback and Forum Announcements" forum.)
Please help us make Online Book Club even better! Please post suggestions, feedback and ideas for new features. Wild brainstorming and potentially 'crazy ideas' are super-strongly encouraged! :)

For new members (or old members who run into an issue), please make a post in this forum asking any questions you have about using the site and how it works that are not answered in the FAQ. Not only are we happy help you, but also we can use your feedback to make the site better for tomorrow's new member! A lot of the instructions throughout the site and answers in the FAQ are there because someone else pointed out that it wasn't clear before.

For reference, there is a contact link on every page of the website.

Hello all,

A couple of private messages tha I had sent are in the outbox.
One was sent on April 9th and the other was sent 2 days back.
It never used to be this delayed before. Has anyone seen this?
Or is it just for me? Thanks.

If the messages in your outbox are for Scott, you could try contacting him through the contact link (instead of by PM) or just send another PM. You might get a quicker response that way.
