In game mail system

Post by Kismet on Mon Oct 12, 2009 8:44 am

Reworked Mail system:
- Being able to delete multiple messages instead of just either one by one or all in one go
- Forwarding messages possible, however the only way to be sure it's not a fake, you have to be forwarded the message by the person who received said message, not by the person who sent it. (If you experiment with it, then you'll know what I mean)
- Quoting previous message is possible, quote cannot get edited, and is lost should both the sender and the receiver delete the original message from their outbox and inbox respectively (considering most people rarely open their outbox let alone delete stuff from it, I dont find this to be a problem)
- Added option to mail alliance leadership. Leader/2IC/Advisors will receive the message.
- Some more tweaks and other reworks that only a few people will ever notice but not important to the user


Original Message wrote:I want a couple things lol!

1. Being able to forward the message.
2. Being able to reply to the message with the original message intact (as a quote) and the subject to stay intact.
3. Being able to mail "Leadership" (1st, 2nd + advisors) as an option.

Ok, so 3 things.... sorry. If they've been suggested before, sorry, just lately it's been bugging me more and more.

Yes, I agree with all 3 things

2nd and 3rd being the most useful
This should be added to the message system.

It's not only 3 people, because "3rd in command" or advisors can be multiple people. You can have even 10 advisors if you want.

1 note, and 1 request

My message page has each message divided into a grid with lines, but some of the lanes are missing putting 2 messages together in 1 grid. is purely cosmetic, everything works, and very possibly just my pc/account

I request a small space be put between the options at the bottom. the options of whom to send it to, they are very close together and when your in a hurry you might send messages to the wrong set of people.

BTW this is GREAT!!!!!!!

Another request on this....... is it possible to add a "delete" while in the message instead of having to go back and tick it and then delete ticked?

You added a lot, very very much appreciated, especially since war has broken out, it makes it a ton easier to send messages to only certain groups!

I would like to see the white lines in the inbox dissappear completely.

Before we didnt have them and everything was fine.

I would like to see them removed.

It hurts my eyes to see it!

Alliance : The "z0mg Ninjas" Clan
We are an elite group of frisbee players that have decided to take our adventures in a different direction.We are no longer the murderous folk our ancestors once were. Our goals in life are simply to blow up human corpses into thousands of little pieces and the scavenge through their belongings and take everything. If you wish to join this gang of ninjai just think really hard about it...and by utilizing my ninja skill i will be able to tell you want to join and will form a telekinetic mind link in which i will evaluate your usefulness to the clan.
If you do not meet the requirements, odds are, while I am in your brain...I'll change your desktop background and probably call your mother and talk to her about the weather. If, however, you are deemed worthy...you will be instantly cast into the gauntlet in which you will learn the ninja arts or die trying...once passed, you will be a standing member of z0mg Ninjas.
Look for us where ever you see no pants.....well wait...don't look there...unless I guess you want to look there...but I mean...we're the only ones who don't have pants..so you probably would wanna look there...so...umm in conclusion......uhh.....we have no pants.

ok, fixed a minor/major issue with how the forwarding worked.

I intentionally set it that the forwarded message gets "sent" from the account that originally wrote it. However this had a minor unforeseen consequence which I really did not intend it to have.
Thanks for the person to pointing that out to me, so it's reworked now.

Forwarded message is sent by the person who forwards it. The second pm which used to be send by the person who was forwarding is now sent by the admin account instead with the information about username and ID of original writer contained in the text.
