After the upgrade, I haven't been getting any confirmed/unconfirmed private message receipts. What's up with that?

It decided to be less annoying. Isn't that nice?

Click the box at the bottom that asks if you wish to request a receipt for it. It defaults to not being checked.

Yay. Thank you. :)

Is there a way to keep that box checked by default instead of having to check it each time you send a PM?

We're not raising the PM limit. :)

I hate you.

Also, just in the last 15 minutes, I forgot to check that little box for 3 seperate PMs. Isn't there some way to keep that stupid thing checked?

Can we put that little notification back. It was great. Without it, life isn't the same. :(

I, too, would like this fixed. However, forcing a box to be checked by default is something that I've never done before. This is possibly something more suited to Yams.

But he's not an admin.

Okay, this is probably something more suited to clout.

Figured it out. Fixed!

RSL

So now do I have to uncheck it everytime I send a PM?

Loony BoB
10-26-2005, 03:35 PM
Only if you don't want it to track your PM. I don't really see the point in not checking it, as it doesn't really affect you in any negative way.

Yamaneko
10-26-2005, 04:45 PM
Samuraid could have done it too! But I know that you don't like going through phpMyAdmin.

eestlinc

what about phpMyButt?

I liked it better without. I never used it anyway.

I guess I don't know how this works. does it nag the person I'm sending a PM to to have to click something? That's why I never use it, I hate to be a nag. If it doesn't affect the person I'm sending it to at all, then I guess I have no reason to care either way. I certainly never use PM tracking.

I wasn't about to even try manually editing template code.:eep:

Thanks BoB. :D

Loony BoB

Yeah, it does, but it's just one click or hit of the space bar. I don't know if you actually CAN deny receipt nowadays anyway.

Anonymous survey my ass.

Loony BoB

Sepho wrote the code for it, ask him if it's anonymous. Not our fault that so many of you are totally obvious with the way you write stuff. :D

But now that we've got so many resonses (127 or so last I checked), it's getting hard to pick people out.

trhe only person that has received any sort of retribution for comments is Raistlin.

How come Raistlin gets retribution? That's so unfair! I want retribution too! :(

Hey guys why not make a fuss about the Quick Reply box being .001mm to low because it is a more pressing issue

Code = :up:

It simply gathers the answers to the questions anonymously and mails them off.

send in a survey with the message "you said you were going to ban me eestlinc you liar!" and include your screenname and I'll give you some retribution too*.

I got yelled at via PM by two people, if that counts.

i gave yams a 10 (no, seriously. :D)

but back on topic. i don't wanna do any extra work with PMs. >:O

Miriel
10-27-2005, 12:11 AM
I want to change the rating I gave to Yamaneko to a -5.

And you people are silly. Why would PM tracking require you to do any extra work? It's there to let you know if someone has read your PM or not, there's no extra work involved.

Denmark

if i'm thinking about it, it's extra distance the electrical impulses have to travel on my neurons. work = force :dot: distance OR W=Fdcos(theta) and since the distance is greater, there is more work done.

I didn't yell at you ShlupQuack!!!!!!!!!!

Er, the above was not me yelling either...

I figured that you tell enough people that you'll ban them that you wouldn't know it was me. :rolleyes2

I don't throw around such threats casually. At least you got to test out one of the new vB 3.5 features, the "reason for banning" display.

Raistlin
10-27-2005, 09:10 PM
Maybe you can test out the new edit button? :p
