I’m currently having an issue where when I attempt to private message someone it brings me to a weird page. It tells me to choose a category but the drop down box is blank. I need some assistance because my phone is all I have for now. I’d hate to be inactive because I can’t reach out to anyone. Help please 12DEC162-3AE3-43D1-9DF0-3220F6971C3F.png

Aggressive, but I am adaptable and can act as a passively as well.

Dystopian, horror, historical, mystery, and certain fandoms. Other genres that I occasionally tend to enjoy include apocalyptic, post-apocalyptic, science fantasy, low fantasy, science fiction, and paranormal/supernatural.

High fantasy, modern, smut, and anything starring anthromorphic characters. I also tend to dislike most Roleplays revolving around high schools, campgrounds, academies, and colleges.

If it helps anyone who is trying to solve this issue, I am also having this problem and I am not using mobile.

Playing Style- Passive or Aggressive
Fairly aggressive. I'm perfectly happy to guide the story, but if your posts never move the plot forward at all, then we'll have a problem.
Favorite Genres
Modern fantasy is my personal favorite, followed closely by high fantasy and post-apocalyptic, but I can happily play in any genre if the plot is good enough.
Genre You DON'T Like
Not a big fan of purely realistic stories. I want something more than real life in my plots please!

Hello! I've heard of a few ways to fix this, but one I know works for sure is to go into your inbox and create a new conversation category. On desktop it's to the left of your conversations. On mobile you need to hit the "categories" button under "Start conversation". As soon as you successfully create a new category, Iwaku will be able to find and list the default category of "All Conversations", as well as the new one you just created, in the formerly blank drop down menu.

I believe the newly added category can be deleted after that if you don't want to use it, but I haven't tested it myself, so if you decide to do that please report back and let me know. ^_^

To add in on what Peregrine said, there is also a resource that explains the matter which you can follow.
