Regarding the change in PMs

Post by Audra on Mon Oct 10, 2011 10:42 pm

Is it possible to make this a bigger announcement? By and large most users do not have email contact turned on. The default is off I believe. I know my concern is putting my email out there where it could be mined/spammed, but if it is the only way to contact players without doing it in a thread, I'll leave it available via form. But it would be super helpful if the default was to be able to be contacted via email, or have some other manner of getting people's emails if we do not have them.

Reaching out to message board users isn't so hard. If their email button is off and you don't have their email, you can ask them to drop you a line via an OOC post in this section of the forum. I discourage anyone from putting their email addresses out on the web.

Sometimes people aren't very attentive to the OOC board - I know I've been guilty of this on occasion.

But to understand correctly, you are encouraging us to not turn on the ability to have other users contact us via email? Oh wait...even if we ask them to contact us through the ooc board, we still have to put our email out in public, 'cause otherwise, they wouldn't know how to contact us.

So would it be better then to leave the email option on, maybe via form?

I'm encouraging players to go into the Preferences section of their Profile and turn on the ability to be contacted via email client software.

Allow members to contact me by e-mail : By e-mail client software

It wouldn't let me change to contact via email client, btw. I'm not sure if I am doing something wrong or what. If I changed it to that, no option for email showed up. But it does allow me to do the contact via web form thingy. Smile Just as an FYI!
