to delete PM messages?
I have loads I'd like to delete.
think of all the lovely webspace they're taking up which could be used for pretty new content.
Especially if murder is vindicated by governments
Tongues are wagging.
Duh duh ching!
how many pages of PMs does everyone have?
I've got 72 :D
I've got something like 25.
I feel lonely now...
I can abuse De Montford some more?
And I only joined in October!
people is rude. I do not give or recieve.
its not a good thing!
Although god your popular!
I lose, I'm playing catchup, PM me now.
You are trifling with my comments :(
I like to remind myself of my wit from time to time.
isn't the word I'd use right now... :-D
But we do need these outboxes.
I've printed all your PMs out.
I'd like to remember what I've written when I've written a PM in a temper!
It would explain the huffy response alot easier!
he is smoother than his vinyl radiogram suits!
I keep dreaming of him, even when i'm awake.
I must have HUNDREDS. really.
you just have to page back and then just put in some page numbers you reckon might be near the end. Use a 'divide by two' sort of process of elimination, though you can use your join date to get some idea of where you might be.
I have 28 pages of notes
I don't know how many, but that seems a lot...
I don't get it at all
So you must have worked it out? Or did you just keep going from page 2?
There's mathematical term for this sort of finding thing. You do it based on vague estimation and stuff...
100 = blank, try 50
50 = blank, try 25
50 = messages, try 75
75 = blank, try 63, else try 88
Obviously you can make this more accurate by roughly knowing when you joined and checking the dates on the messages you find if you go to 50 and find some.
so i've got something like 1400, hmmm...
or just give them nought
rating bands is easier on this site than on the old one
- full site searches
- features attached to the relevant bands (probably would take years as I don't think the link was ever there in the old site but the search system sorted that)
- Cinema/film reviews, etc. showing up when you click 'reviews'? (you have to do the staff reviews thing to hunt them down, I think)
- deletion of PMs you've received
- storage of PMs you've sent or at least to be able to see the one you're replying to when you reply
- change of photos (matt said there's a cool-ass 'gallery' thing coming but I'd guess that's reasonably at the bottom of any list)
- return of the minimal HTML ability in posts if possible (bold, italic, strikethrough?)
- fixing that annoying thing where pound symbols, accented es, pasted apostrophes and such give weird symbols: Â£, Ã©
- deletion of ratings
They're all pretty minor, apart from maybe the abiltiy to search the site.
Matt only has about one night a week to work on the site, doesn't he? He's doing pretty well on that basis I reckon.
searching the site would be really good - and an a-z of bands. it irritates me if you don't spell a bands name exactly correct you get nothing. even spaces in the wrong places etc.
how many pms you had.
or how many waiting to be read, because that's over on the left hand side with your login.
It's much easier to notice than on the old site too.
and if you have more than one it says you're popular which feeds egos nicely.
All in all this new site is officially ACE I think we can all agree.
so you only need to put a bit of the name in to find them.
'sch' will pull up the 'The Schla la las' for example. 'la' won't, however. Still, I've not yet been balked, even if it took me a few tries.
I did like the old site's alphabetic listing...
If you're listening, I want a word with you.
there were film reviews!
I thought that would be good the other day seeing as a lot of people here seem to be into film but then I remembered this is a music site. There goes my neighbours column (this would be when DiS expanded into full on multimedia sensation)!
But basically you have to click 'reviews' and then you click the 'all staff reviews' (or whatever) link at the bottom and you get taken to a forum thing and then you start scrolling through that until you see a film...
Easy? Not... The thing is when you get there it's tagged as 'cinema' as you can see at the top.
Just re-rate if you've changed your mind. surely you don't suddenly stop having an opinion on a band? even if you don't ever listen to them.
but clearly it's distressing hollywood_freak intensely and I don't like to see her sad...
they're pretty much all from since the new site went up, I never really got any before.
Another feature I would like on PMs is a 'send to many' option - then the social board wouldn't be as full of Londoncentric threads where we ask if anyone's going to the pub etc.
only if people have to pass a 'appropriate use of reply to all/send to many button' text before they're allowed access to the function.
reply all. bane of my life.
Send the note then click 'back' then type the new user name over the last one (the auto-complete will give you the rest) then send then 'back' again...etc.
reply all banned at work because everyone kept whinging about how much time reading all user unnecessary mails was taking, in all user mails. nobheads.
I'd prefer that to be honest as it would mean I could respond without having to boot up the internet.
