Hi Guys. I'm working on a big update for the site with the following proposed changes :
Slight redesign to make them look more like the message boards. Also I'm thinking of putting the username and avatar beside each advert - it will make it easier for moderators and users alike to spot spamming, etc. We could also provide a link to all ads by that user. Any objections to this?
PRIVATE MESSAGE BOX
All replies to classifieds, personal messages, profiles (see below), will now be stored online instead of being sent to your email address. There will be a limit of 100 messages per user.
This area will include a sent folder and a contacts area to manage up to 50 Gaire contacts. Messages can be sent to any or all contacts in your inbox.
The grey menu bar above will update itself every few minutes so you'll see if you have new messages or not.
A mailshot will be sent out once a week to the relevant people if they need to check their messages online.
WHO'S ONLINE / PROFILES
Members will be able to give more information about themselves (e.g., "I am flat-hunting" / "Looking for friendship" which will show up on the Who's Online page and we will also have searchable profiles of those who aren't online.
I'm gonna make it a bit more snazzy. Plus maybe have a text box where you can update your online status as you login ???
The main thing about this update is that everyone will be contactable without giving out emails, etc.
Any questions / feedback ?
