Can't contact Tutors

When I try to contact someone by clicking “Request Conversation”, after I have filled out the request. I always get the error message,
“Error creating conversation request:
tutor: This field is required.”
(Safari, Mac OS Lion)

What “tutor” field? There is no tutor field in the window. There is a check box for “tutor” in the search field on the right, but that is checked.
What is going on here? How can I contact someone?

Hi Dale,

There seems to be a bug here - we’ll look at getting it fixed.

For now, you should still be able to sign up for conversations with tutors through the Speak page.

Note that it gives similar, although different messages using Forefox.
I tried using Firefox today and first got the error
“Error creating conversation request:
topic: Ensure this value has at most 255 characters (it has 256).
tutor: This field is required.”
So I shortened the message and then got the error:
“Error creating conversation request:
tutor: This field is required.”

Hope this helps.

If I go to the Speak page it doesn’t show me the person I want, and although she is listed as a tutor, she does not have an email or Skype address in her profile. No wait, now, since I added her as a friend, she has a Skype address & I have sent her a message that way.

Thanks,
Dale

@Dale - If you go to the tutor’s profile page and click on the Request Conversation button there, it should be working. It is only on the Tutor search page that this bug exists.
