    Default Request/Suggestion for Messageboard Change

    Aaron,

    I was just playing around with some of the new board features and I came across one that you might want to look at.

    Under 'Private Messages', if I click on 'Send New Private Message', it would be nice if the addressee field could show the name and/or the e-mail address of all board members. That would be easier than having to write down the e-mail address of the person I want to communicate with.

    Women and cats will do whatever they want. The sooner men and dogs realize that, the happier they will be.

    Dave, while I agree this would be a nice feature, I'm not sure that it is possible. Aaron may be able to find a way though.

    But in any case, when sending a private message, you use the addressee's username, not their email address. Also, if you send a PM from someone's profile or by clicking on their name next to a post, the recipient field will get filled in as expected.

    You can also send a private message by clicking on their name in a thread, and choosing "Send a Private Message to..."

    Dave,

    You can use this "Private Message" feature to wish Aaron Brown a Happy Birthday today if you wish! He turns 28 on the 28th.

    He deserves this day off with all he has accomplished in putting this great forum system together and getting it all set up. Happy Birthday, Aaron!
