More trouble with contacts...

By AnsuGisalas ·
Tags: Off Topic
Can y'all check your contacts?
I looked at Boxfiddlers contacts, and I don't show there, despite two-way following... so it may be in worse shape than we thought.
If there's a discrepancy, it would probably help the code jockeys to know about the shape of it.
I'll edit in my contacts and mailto options: I do hope this is not a privacy offense, all this is public record, right? Anyway, there's no way to track discrepancies in this without some disclosure...

rmerchberger@... Doesn't follow me
santeewelding Doesn't follow me
seanferd Follows me
SinisterSlay Doesn't follow me
Sonja Thompson Follows me
Sterling "Chip" Camden Follows me
The 'G-Man.' Follows me
Tigger_Two Follows me
TobiF Follows me

Mailto options: Tigs, Boxie, Tobif, Sonja, Nick, Chip, jck, Neon, Liz, Oh Smeg

So, mutual follows but no mailto : G-man, seanferd, Palmetto, Purpz : Does this coincide with the peermail box being unchecked?

Also, it would be good to know how the contacts lists look from the outside.

And it seems, from the outside...

that non-mutual follows are still "contacts", but the profile only shows 8 contacts.

I am betting

by Tigger_Two In reply to More trouble with contact ...

That the whole "Contacts Following" thing is broken as are PMs. Someone who knows me well wasn't able to send me a PM- the system said I was refusing PMs- not the case.

I'm not sure what the status on this is. I know that Jason acknowledged that they were re-visiting the contacts piece.

One thing to be careful of is multiple identities. You can be following one but not the other. I don't honestly know if that makes a difference, but it could. People who had been in my contacts for years fell off when my name changed.

Starting next week, there will be a weekly update blog from Brandon. This would be a good thing to bring up there.

I don't even think the system knows

by NickNielsen In reply to More trouble with contact ...

I have 55 contacts. 37 also follow me, and thirty of those show up in the PM drop-down. I know at least one of those is not working properly, and three of those that follow me, but aren't in the PM drop-down and I have had PM correspondence in the past.

Oh, and some that should be in my contacts list, aren't there.

Test mail coming your way.

And unless the setting was changed during the Reformation, I had my peermail option enabled.

You are one of the seven of my contacts

by NickNielsen In reply to Test mail coming your way ...

that doesn't appear in the PM drop-down. Strange.

It turns out...

by AnsuGisalas In reply to You are one of the seven ...

that Palmie can PM me, but I can't PM him. So, weirdness...
Just checking; I have ten names in my PM dropdown, does anyone have more than 10?

As I said above

by NickNielsen In reply to It turns out...

I have 30. but I don't know how many of those actually work.

Edit: The system let me send you a message, so at least one of them works.

Right... forgot about that. &ATT Palmetto

by AnsuGisalas In reply to As I said above

So, at least it's not a cutoff like the eight in the profile.
Interesting... sounds to me like some kind of profile formatting problem, or something. After the update most of my personal info on my profile was corrupt... maybe an overflow?

Palmetto; have you by any chance checked your profile data post-update? That could rule out that at least.

Same here.

by seanferd In reply to It turns out...

I am offered the option to PM you. Let us see if you actually receive a message.

RSVP. Feel free to keep the email addy and use it. If you so choose. I should note, many of my Contacts went missing with the 'enhancement'.
