One thing I sorely miss from the old site is the ability to very easily send private messages to users. What was once one click under every post is now two or three. I would appreciate the “Send Private Message” link to be returned, if possible.

Thanks!

Still, I miss the convenience.

I miss the ability to tell if a sent PM has actually been opened by the recipient.

I went back and forth on this. In the end, I decided it was stalker-ish.

The things you pwn end up pwning you.

Understandable.

I’ll just have to go back to rummaging through Frink’s garbage cans again. 😉

If only that was a real font. 😉

Actually, there are such fonts available but they are your typical mono-color text characters (and we’d all need 'em installed to see the text the way the poster meant it).

For my posts, I used a website (there are quite a few, but the Strix Ransom Note Generator did the most) that generates a picture. I screen-capped mine, modded the leading & spacing to make it look more like it was pasted together (I guess I just expect too much), and added them to my download site (now Photobucket) for everyone’s entertainment!

** BTW, I, too, find it helpful to know if someone I’m personally contacting received my message.

** AND, while we’re at it, I would also like to see the last poster of a thread (another feature from the previous forum iteration). I respect certain posters for their knowledge and/or entertainment value and would check a normally skipped-over thread if I saw his name there.

** AND, another old feature, view count, should be added to see how things are going on any particular thread. It’s another indicator that a high number might suggest something there in which I, too, might be interested.

IN SHORT, MORE INFORMATION, NOT LESS, MAKES A FORUM BETTER!

Dumb question, can we add people to a private topic later on as needed?

It’s a planned feature. It’s a bit complex because it needs to involve a voting/approval process by the topic’s current invitees. If people could be added to a private topic at will, you’d have no reasonable expectation of privacy as a participant.

The things you pwn end up pwning you.

Makes sense. And a new PT can be made if more people get involved. Thanks Jay!

Sounds like you’ll go about it in a much more sensical way than most social media messaging.
