Bug warning: MeFi Mail issues

Heads up: Sending MefiMail might silently break. When it doesn’t work, the message is not sent, and it doesn’t show up in your Sent Mail folder. [more inside]

Why allow blocking private messages?

For the first time, I just had another user block my private messages after a polite but heated exchange where I guess they just really wanted the last word. I'm not like offended, but I had never noticed the option to block private messages before, and was wondering what the rationale is there. If someone is spamming or harassing another user, that seems like something that could be resolved through the mods. Is this something that has always been there, and do people use it all the time and I'm just out of the loop?

Could we mark MeFi Mail as unread?

Would it be possible to be able to mark MeFi Mail messages as unread? I tend to manage my email by marking messages I haven't yet responded to as "unread," and it would be helpful to me -- and maybe other people? -- to be able to do that with MeFi Mail, especially as there's not an indication that I've sent a reply.

You sound just like a _____!

There is currently a practice across Metafilter, especially within Metafilter proper (the Blue) and Metatalk (the Grey) of making personal attacks against other users that I feel undermines the community aspect of the site. The attacks I am concerned with most often take the form of ugly insinuations that the user is deliberately derailing, trolling or using common tactics which are allegedly known to be popular with (in alphabetical order, thee could be more, these are all I could think of when I set about making this thread):
  • Anti-Semites
  • Bigots
  • Conservatives
  • Misogynists
  • MRAs
  • PUAs
  • Racists
  • Redditors (specifically, usually The Red Pill subreddit)
  • TERFs
  • Transmisogonists

Fantastic commenters will never know they're fantastic

I'm seeing a lot of great comments on the blue lately; I mark them as favorites, of course, but sometimes I flag them as "Fantastic". However, the commenter doesn't receive this feedback. [more inside]

A boon for the fumble-fingered!

A small pony request: we have the edit button for comments we make on AskMefi, would it be possible to add an edit capability to Memail messages? 'Cause sometimes, my fat fingers don't go where I want them to go....

Warning for MeMail to disabled accounts

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?

Friend can't find button

A friend of mine has a really embarrassing question. My friend goes into his Mefi mail account and can't find the Compose button to send mefi mail. He's poked around and can't seem to figure it out. What a silly friend. Anyhow if there is someone who can help out my friend that would be great. My friend would really appreciate it.

MeFiMail the mod currently on duty

Couldn't send your message because there was no message! Yes there was!

Can you remove the requirement that MeFi mails have to have text in the body? Sometimes a quick question/comment in the subject line suffices. I think most of us are techologically literate enough to not need the reminder that we are sending w/o text, and it doesn't remove any functionality for anyone.

Quoting capabilities for MeFi mail?

Quoting capabilities for MeFi mail? Yeah, I know, it's not meant to be a full-fledged mail client, but it's annoying when someone responds to something you said and you have to go back to your sent folder to remember what the heck it was.

Custom Folders for MeFi Mail

I was wondering if there were any plans to implement custom folders in MeFi Mail that we could move MeFi e-mails to? If not, can we have them please? They could appear in the form of extra tabs next to the 'Your Sent Mail' and 'Your Contacts' tabs. [more inside]

Why verify addresses to turn of mefi mail reminders?

Why do I have to have a verified email address to opt out of mefi mail reminders? It wasn't a huge pain to verify it, but it doesn't make sense that I had to. It should have nothing to do with my email.

I missed a message because it was in MeFi mail

Argh! An anonymous AskMe poster sent me follow up information three days ago -- on my invitation -- but sent it to MeFi mail, so I only just discovered it! Is there some way to make MeFi mail notify my regular e-mail? I feel so guilty...

New Mail Pony?

MeFi Mail Pony Request -- I often miss that I have new messages because the icon's so goshed darned tiny and doesn't call attention to itself in any way. Since I *rarely* get MeFiMails (no one likes me), can we get something like, say, a blink tag or a .wav that says "You've got Mail!" or something up there when we have new mail? [more inside]
