If a user has a disabled account, the user's profile page lacks a link to send MeFi Mail, effectively preventing us from sending that user MeMail. But most of the MeMails I send are via replies. When I reply, there is no warning if the user has disabled the account. It can be a little surprising to realize that one has been sending messages essentially into the ether, although I presume the messages are preserved for the user's return. Can we get a warning when sending a MeMail to a user with a disabled account?
7 people just removed me from their contact list! From beyond the MeFi grave! [more inside]
Forktine is gone? No! Why? Does anyone know what happened, or if he's coming back?
I should probably know this but if I ever did, I've forgotten, and I'm drawing a blank hunting around right now. Is there a way to MeMail someone who has disabled his/her account, or otherwise find useful contact info from their page? [more inside]
Another one bites the dust? [more inside]
Some mefites need a bit of sensitivity training on the whole disabled thing. [more inside]
We have a "joined" date in user profiles. Can we have a "left" date for the pushers of the big red button?
Alas poor hermitosis! We knew him, Mefites: Twas a fellow of infinite jest, of moste excellent fancy...oh, yeah, and he was a total favorites whore.
What happened to koeselitz? Come back! I always appreciate your intelligent, thoughtful, learned comments. [more inside]
Why do comments that have been favorited show up with all links disabled? Are there any plans to change this behavior in the future? [more inside]
1. So I add a contact for the sake of entertainment perhaps. 2. Their account is then disabled. 3. I can't get rid of them from my contact list? Argh.
This account is disabled. What? When? Why?
Hey, I see we now have a "This account is disabled" flag to slap on banned users' profiles. Any other additions along these lines?
the snark feature is disabled for me - by that i mean the comments arent working.
Have trackbacks been disabled? Or is it just that nobody wants to link back to Metafilter anymore?
FYI: Trackback has been disabled from the site until I get some time next week to put some fixes in to block certain people from tweaking with it.
