Inside Jay's mind : "Natedogg? What's a... ooh, it's a new user!"

Hello Natedogg.
(What's wrong with the PM's!)

He said he'd PM me and it's been several minutes and he noted that'd be a short one so I'm hoping that if it doesn't work for some reason he'll come here.

I got to admit, I am not a fan of SoCoder's PM'ing system.

Hmm.. ok, maybe the pm's aren't the best..

*bangs head on desk* I'm sick of fiddling with the damn thing!! *bangs head some more*

I'll make it so that PM's jump out, fly around the screen, then nibble at your toes until you read them.

yeah, the PM's are a little screwy somtimes. You might consider just redoing the system completely, that might solve the problem.

Stuff... Yeah...

I figured out what the PM system's issue was..
I set the "I've Read" values to default to true, so we didn't all suddenly get all our PM's set as unread when I added the new Read/Unread thing.

But then forgot to change it to 0 when writing new PM's


DUH!!!

Anyhoo, I changed the PM mainscreen to show the last 25 PMs. Technically the unread ones should show up at the top, but if you've quite a few unread it might get a bit tangled up in there!
And I also set it to show unread as bigger/bolder. So, that should help, too.

Are there any more complaints about the PM system?

Oh, I missed that. However, it would be nice to have a button on the PM page.

Oh, right.
Yeah, I thought about that..
If you click a "New PM" button, you then have to pick a recipient. A drop down list with every member would be a bit silly.
Asking for a name would also be a bit daft, 'cos you might misspell a name, and have the PM go to the wrong person.

To be honest, I've only ever clicked PM-This-Member buttons on other forums. Never a "Write a new PM" button.

So, there's little PM buttons on every post that someone makes, and there's also a "Send a PM" link on each person's profile.


What would be your solution for a "New PM" page?

I don't think it would be silly to have a list with all the members' names, but now that I know about the little button at the bottom of every post it doesn't matter anyway.
