Can we attach images to the messages?

ABE:

Did you change all the font or something? Its looks wierd.... Nevermind, I saw Message 236

Will there be a block function? So I can block certain members from sending me PM's?

Yes, and buddy lists, too. I'm looking for a better name than "buddy lists", suggestions welcome.

Just use "Friends List". I don't like the sound of "buddy".

the option would be to "befriend" someone.

What about attaching images?

All dBCodes for normal messages also work in Private Messaging.

Rad! Bravo!

Some observations:

-the pmq quoting is a little less obvious that the regular qs quoting and which makes it a little harder to read.

-when I reply w/ quote it also quotes the signature, which I didn't like

-phat and I went back a forth a coupla times and it functioned fine

-sometimes the header for the columns is overlapping the descriptions for the top message but if I refresh it lines up properly

What browser are you using?

IE8

Further, sometimes (maybe 1/10) when a particular thread's page is loading, it doesn't complete the whole thing, like only half of the page's information gets loaded but it says 'done' at the bottom and nothing else happens. If I hit refresh, then the whole thing loads just fine. It never happened before dBoard 3.0 came out. I remember right afterwards that I was going to mention it to you but I forgot until now.

Regarding the overstrike problem on the PM folder column headings, I did see this problem the first time I viewed the PM page with IE8, but then I clicked the refresh button, and now I can no longer make it happen. If you're able to repeatedly reproduce this then just tell me the steps.

Heh, I can't get it to happen anymore.

Problem solved!

About the failure to paint the entire page, I see this maybe once a week. If you're seeing it more often can you think of any sequence of things you do that might lead up to this?

I almost always right-click and open in new tab. I'll either pick the latest message from the all topics page and go right to it or go to one of the page numbers from the topic column. I'll open a few new tabs from the all topics page and then go through them individually to find (occasionally) one of the pages hasn't loaded fully.

Hey Percy,

The messaging system seems to be working fine. I have one piece of feedback:

I got a message from Straggler with Oni CC'd, and when I hit "Reply All" it also put myself in the 'To' line, or maybe it was the CC line. That's atypical from my experiences. And I can't think of why I would be sending the reply to myself as well. Especially since there's a 'Sent' box too.

You should get rid of that.
