Just a brief message to let everybody know that we have now added the "preview" feature to our private message system (my messages).
This will allow the private message system to work just like our blog system, bulletin system, shoutout system, and so on.
In essence: Type a message, preview a message, update or send the message!
Not sure why this was never done before now... but at least it is done now, eh!
Please let us know if you encounter any issues with it via a shoutout or via our twitter account or by replying to this blog!
There are four other things to be aware of:
All messages and subjects will now be filtered by our "bad word censor" feature.
All messages and subjects will now be filtered by our "blacklisted words" feature.
The email notification subject has changed. If you use custom filters you will need to update them! The new email subject will be: You've Received A New Message!
The message "subject" is now checked to see if any email addresses or other "personal information" is included within the subject. If found, your account will be terminated per our Content Policy (and as always, this applies to your message as well.)
Thanks! I always wondered why we couldn't do that and since the teacher in me hates typos is will be nice to be able to review it before hitting send. Yes, I could always read what I had typed in the text box of course, but the larger text in preview is easier on older eyes!
p.s.: right now this only works for NEW messages I will get this working for "replies" tomorrow
(Gulp) Thank you...guilty as charged. This should cut down on my having to say "Ooops, I forgot..." though.
Ok, I obviously did NOT get this done "tomorrow". Opps.
I guess instead I will say: "I'll get this done when I get it done"
