Okay, TR - A new pet peeve

By maxwell edison ·
Tags: Off Topic
I want to send a private message to someone - but you are limiting my options to a "contact". And if you're not, then you're making it too complicated to see.

Example: I want to send a PM to John Doe. He's not one of my "contacts". Why won't you let me?

Grrrrrrrrrr..........

I have the kerosene

Do you have the brands?

No, but .....

..... it's the opposite of progress.

I just wanted to send someone a PM, but I couldn't - not because he didn't want it, but because TR's new format wouldn't allow it.

Let's see where it goes.

P.S. I'm not really having a good day. and this just didn't set well with me.

Last I heard, there may be some sort of modification to that behavior.

I think it could be worse than you think...

Some people on my contacts list don't feature in the "mailto" dropdown... so either they've not allowed peermail, or the system requires a two-way-contacthood...
The latter would be very messed up, since nobody can tell who's "following" them, anymore, so forming mutual contactnesses with someone one doesn't have an address for would sort of require "soliciting" on the boards... which is likely beneath most people.

I notice that around the second day.

Personally, I like it. It keeps me from receiving those annoying homework questions from idjits I've never heard of.

So add him as a Contact. Of course, he'll have to add you too. If he isn't interested enough in your postings to add you as a Contact, he probably wouldn't welcome e-mail from you.

There should be a feature to notify you when someone has added you as a Contact, and asking if you would like to reciprocate. Maybe that feature is already there and I haven't noticed it yet. I only update Contacts a couple of times a year.

It's not there yet...

but an email alert for when someone adds you as a contact is on the list of features we're adding.

We're going to change the contact option to...

by jasonhiner Moderator In reply to Okay, TR - A new pet peev ...

a setting in your profile that will be:

Who can contact me?
- Anyone
- No one
- Only my contacts
