"You can't whisper to that user." error

I'm trying to send a message to my friend, but I get an error that says "You can't whisper to that user." every time I attempt to send one. I'm sure he's online as he's listed when I do "/F L". I've restarted the game, and I've tried to message him using his account name and his character name.

What's happening here?

Is your friend sitting in the lobby? In other words, has he actually clicked "Enter Chat" after selecting a character? If he hasn't, or if he's sitting in the character selection screen, you'll get this error.

and be sure to type
/w %f#
where # is the number listed on /F L
less chances to mispell the name that way

Ahh, damn.. that must be it. Thanks. :)
Is there some way I can check to see if a friend has entered the lobby chat?

if they havent itll say "blah blah is in US East"(or whichever realm)

when they enter the chat it'll say "blah blah is in channel so and so"

or "blah blah is in such and such game"

caution, that only works if your mutual firends (both on eachothers friends lists)
also when you join private games you can see the passwords too

Sometimes I recieve messages in the "Chat" area tho.

Would it be because they use /f l instead of a specific #friends command?

didn't know of that command, thx.

this message can also appear if the user is in the loading screen while creating or joining a game.

Yes, if you're in the lobby (or whatever it's called) and one of your frineds use /f l, you will get the message too.
