On Careers 2.0, if you apply for a job and go to messagessent, you can see your application and:

You must wait until the employer responds to your application

But if you remove the disabled="disabled" attribute from the message text area and submit button, plus set ng-disabled="canSendMessage(thread)", you can actually send messages even though it is forbidden. The backend does not appear to check this in any way.

To reproduce:

  1. Apply for a job
  2. Go to messages->sent
  3. Remove everything marked with green colour on picture 2
  4. Send a message

    How can you tell is was really sent? Do you see another message in your "Sent" folder? May 6, 2014 at 21:58
  • I tested it. Sent a message to one of my applications, that was not replied. Looks pretty stupid now, but it worked. Yeah, i can see it in my sent folder

  • Sure, you have "Image" toolbar icon in the editor click it to open the image upload dialog. Here on MSE it should be enabled for everyone. May 6, 2014 at 22:20
  • oh, great, thought I need rating to add pictures:) added some screenshots.
