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?

I found the TROL you did at the mothership in 2008

by NickNielsen In reply to That's weird

You, Beth, and Soni. Your comments there are also above Tig2. I think the user name is associated with an email address. I am unable to change the user name associated with my old ZDNet account because "That user name is already in use", even though I'm changing it FROM that user name.

Speaking of emails, I have two addresses listed for you. Is either one still good? I tried to ask you in a PM, but I get a return message of "You are attempting to contact a member that has elected not to be contacted."

This time, it let me change it. I can't associate my selected email address with it because a user account with that address already exists. This opens up all kinds of options...or not. I could attempt multiple personalities, but both would be me. Another option is to change the email address to a throwaway, then get the account banned. The most rational would be to ask the PTB to delete it...if they can.

POS is POS is you, Nick?

I see the post but that poster has not been seen in 6 years.

Not getting it.

You're confused

Maybe this explains why I'm seeing so many "handles" I don't ever recall seeing before. Where in **** are all these people coming from?

see this change as the best thing, and are posting like rabid squirrels.

I could be wrong, it has happened before.

Yes, MJ that was me

by NickNielsen In reply to I found the TROL you did ...

Before the changeover, I couldn't change the username on the nicknielsen2 account, so I decided to try it again with a random user name. I didn't know there was a POS is POS user in the past, though. I know it wasn't me then.

Yes, Ansu, you got it. :^0

Maybe I'll go with Holgar on the other account...

THAT is just wrong

by Tigger_Two In reply to I found the TROL you did ...

I have PM turned on.

A correct address would be the most common form of my name prior to marriage with appropriate punctuation and recalling that Comcast is a net.

According to TR, that address- which would be the one associated with Tig2- isn't. If it had been, I would have been able to relaunch that account. The one I was able to get them to acknowledge was created during some strangeness when several of us discovered the value of a second login.

Oddly, that is also the address that TR sends newsletters to. It should have worked and I should have been able to do a name reset. But then, a lot of things SHOULD work that don't.


I'm over the underscore but there is no reason that I can think of that it should tell you that I don't accept PMs.

That's one of them

by NickNielsen In reply to I found the TROL you did ...

That one is also the one I show as associated with your original account. The other would be the same name, with appropriate punctuation, but at an address provided by the host of the bug spreadsheet.

Strange about the PM. Think I'll add it to the bug sheet.
