Private Message - New 'pull down' list of members

By CharlieSpencer ·
Tags: Off Topic
Would it be asking too much to put this list of members in alphabetical order, instead of the apparently random sequence they're in now? It makes it difficult for us old timers who have more than three or four contacts to find the one we want to reach. Some of us are so old that by the time we find the name we want, we've forgotten what we wanted to tell them.

Secondary and less likely, is there any chance of enabling multiple recipients?

with the larger avatars, I would occasionally think I had lost a contact or something because the page <i>freakin' rearranges itself</i>.

You win my Idea-Man Award for today (which is actually worth nothing except in my mind).

Multiple recipients. Dude!

Yes, I'm still running a NASCAR fantasy league.

I posted a notice a couple of weeks ago. I think it's still visible on the Water Cooler page. Let me know if you know anyone interested. I'll take new players right up until the green flag on Sunday.

Are the few that actually follow me. All six of them are easy to keep straight.

I see what you did. Do I recall you mentioning that something went wrong with your old handle, or am I imagining that?

edit: Argh. I know at least one other person who has a different nym now. I must be slipping. Or more than usual, anyway.

No, Seanferd. You are remembering

by Tigger_Two In reply to Oho!

I used to be TiggerTwo and am now Tigger_Two. Couldn't log in as me and didn't feel like messing around too much so I just kept the underscore. Problem is that I lost all my contacts.

I think I recall someone else posting that they had lost all their contacts as well so I just assumed that this was a known bug with the relaunch and rebuilt my contacts. The problem is that I haven't been re-added to most folks contacts. I'm not being followed by many, in fact.

The only reason- in my opinion- to insure that I'm following people AND that they are following me is the fact that you can't PM anyone who isn't in your contact list and you in theirs. I can follow the thinking behind that but the execution didn't work as planned, I don't think. From my perspective, a notification would need to be generated when you add someone for that PM restriction to work as they were thinking.

As well as their favorites and other stuff.

I do still have Tig2 showing in my contacts, but indeed TiggerTwo had gone missing, and I was wondering what was up with that. Of all the logins that TR could have blackholed in transition...

edit: Doing a search, it seems like all the TiggerTwo posts were converted to Tig2 (Last seen in 2005!).

The TiggerTwo name should have been available then. I must investigate.
