MetaAnniversary: FizzRecordings? nightFizz?

On this exact date, one year ago, I messaged Nightrecordings via MeMail to discuss this post about Serena Williams at the US Open. One thing led to another and...we're now married. I wouldn't have the love of my life without this community. I want to thank everyone here who made that possible. Apologies for the selfishness of this MetaTalk. I love you Nightrecordings! ❤️

Notifications for MeMail?

Checking for new MeMail is just not I regular thing for me... I get one every once in a blue moon. Can we have notifications within the site (like an info banner at the top of the page) or emails sent when we get MeMail or make it more obvious when there's MeMail waiting in your Inbox (blink tag!!) ?

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?

FanFare MeMails on the Pony Express

Could we please give users the option to get two kinds of fanfare-related memails?
  1. An alert when someone starts a thread for an episode of a podcast/show that you're following on MyFanfare. (This is perhaps redundant, but I can't be the only one who doesn't think to wander over to MyFanfare that much…)
  2. A digest listing all of the new shows, podcasts (not individual episodes) and movies added to FanFare in the last week. I can't even think of all the media on which I'd be interesting in seeing the community's perspective, and this would be a good way to discover that other folks want to have those conversations as well.

Minor MeMail bug...or not!

I've noticed that, after sending a message, the Your Inbox "tab" link includes "sent=1" and the only way I've found to clear the "Your message was sent" message is to use the little (more difficult for me to click on) envelope link. This just seems like odd behaviour, is it intentional? [more inside]

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?

EVERYBODY GETS A PONY!

Pony Request: a search function for MeMail. We're able to search our activity and favorites, and I'd love to be able to do the same for MeMail. I know MeMail isn't meant to replicate the features of services like Gmail, but I think this particular function would be really useful.

Wanted: a quicker way to stalk, I mean memail people

Can we skip a step when memailing someone? I'd like to be able to type in the username in the TO field, rather than 1) searching for their username 2) clicking on their profile link 3) clicking on the "send mail" link.

Notification for deleted posts?

So earlier this morning I posted something innocuous but inane in an askme thread that had been more or less answered. Just now, logging in, I see that that comment has been disappeared. This is fine, and not particularly worthy of complaint, but I find it sort of annoying that there's no notification or anyway for me to know that the reply was ever made at all. [more inside]

Cortex: My friend write, he get message, he show metafilter. Why no?

So ummm... Yeah, I'm pretty sure the OP of the thread below me was asking in a VERY creative way: Why is there a metafilter policy against telling others via postings what you received in MeMail? Easy on the trigger, cortex. Just because you CAN delete and end threads, doesn't mean you should.

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.

My Little Pony Express

One thing that annoys me about long MeMail conversations is the lack of threading; before services like GMail and Facebook, which thread messages, this wouldn't have been such a big deal, but anymore I find it kind of irritating to have to click through several pages to read old messages in a thread. So how's about some conversation threading in MeMail? [more inside]

where the heck is metamail?

Let's establish first of all that I'm a complete moron. Ok, with that out of the way, every great once in a while I've managed to find where to go to do metafilter mail. I'm never sure how I did it, and I can never seem to repeat it. I've just clicked about every link I could on my profile and contacts list and elsewhere, and can't access it. Now, since I'm, again, a moron, I'd never suggest that you place a clearer link to this feature. But can someone deign to give me a URL, a clue....something? Many thanks!
