PMs TO Admins?

  • Admins can send to anyone, but can anyone still send to a admin? Just want to make sure people needing support can message a admin without the delay of having a friendship request approved. It also could give a heads up to a admin if a spammer sends them a spam message.

    Interesting idea… right now, the plugin doesn’t support this. Not sure if I’m going to add it.

    This is a plugin-by-committee, so if other people like this idea, then I might incorporate it in a future version.

    @Dennis_H you could befriend everyone with a dedicated support account upon activation, Welcome Pack, but @r-a-y I agree with Dennis and had thought of the same. Even better for me would be to allow anyone to PM a specified admin account but not all admin accounts. Regardless, thank you for pluginifying this. BG

    Will look at adding a whitelist option based on a comma-delimited list of user IDs.

    I have opened a ticket a very long time ago.
    Not sure if this is related to your post and whether my ticket is really fixed ?

    @erich73 – That issue isn’t valid anymore and isn’t related to this topic.

    @brianglanz, @Dennis_H – I’ve added support for whitelisting specific user IDs for the next version. Expect it in the next day or so.

    Follow-up question: If you’re on these whitelisted user’s pages, should the “Send Private Message” button be shown? You’ll probably say yes… but just wanted some feedback!

    danke danke r-a-y. I never really was friends with Tom ;) and yes, I’d say if messaging works, show the button.

    hi @r-a-y,

    what about excluding certain IDs from receiving PMs at all?
    From my point PMs to poor admin in big enough network will kill him, aspecially thousands of silly questions from newbies, when there is support forum.

    is there already some build in function?

    I understand that admin could not to reply, or decline friendship, but it will inhibit users from the network.

    thanks.
