Quoth Bill,

you could always go to the TMP Poll Suggestions board and start a mass movement in support of that

The question: Would you support adding an Outbox function for PMs?
Yes – what a great idea!
No – I see no need for this, because I never forget.

The reason I rise to propose this is that right now you can never read what you've sent to somebody else, once you post it. A minor bother, perhaps, but isn't it always the niggles that get the most irritating eventually?

John the OFM11 Apr 2013 2:51 p.m. PST

Yes I would.
It is very annoying to get a PM that only replies without a quote and I can't remember what I said. grin

Yes !

Yes, we need a PM outbox… i've had several times where I needed to look up an old PM that I had sent, but was unable too.

ALSO, when replying is there any way to keep the "RE:" to only one time, instead of adding extra "RE:"s

For example… after a back and forth my message subject becomes:


doc mcb11 Apr 2013 3:09 p.m. PST

Yes, please.

GaryRP11 Apr 2013 3:11 p.m. PST

Sounds like a useful feature. I would vote yes.

rmcaras Supporting Member of TMP11 Apr 2013 3:14 p.m. PST

YES, please!

and while your at it some basic message control, such as selecting and deleting without having to open up each message, scroll to the bottom & deleting.

Jakar Nilson11 Apr 2013 3:45 p.m. PST

Sounds like a no-brainer…

abelp0111 Apr 2013 4:02 p.m. PST

yes, please!

Oh Bugger11 Apr 2013 4:17 p.m. PST

Yes! Just the ticket.

richarDISNEY11 Apr 2013 5:08 p.m. PST

Double plus good!

korsun0 Supporting Member of TMP11 Apr 2013 5:09 p.m. PST

You can delete the "Re" in the title each time….

A good idea I think. The features would depend a lot on the code and the capability I suppose but some sort of archive would be useful.

Same with old Market Place posts, when I search I only get back a few results….

Sergeant Paper11 Apr 2013 5:51 p.m. PST

And 'Yes, please.' from me too.

War Panda11 Apr 2013 6:07 p.m. PST

Yes and immediately please (or sooner if you like)


I find myself in agreement with all in favor!

FusilierDan Supporting Member of TMP11 Apr 2013 6:53 p.m. PST

Yes, please.

Charles Marlow11 Apr 2013 6:54 p.m. PST

I'm in favour of the purposed new function.

Midpoint11 Apr 2013 7:13 p.m. PST

Yes please.

Mapleleaf11 Apr 2013 7:19 p.m. PST

yes thank you

I think I may have sent you a PM on this earlier, Sergeant, but I'm not sure now.

Yes, great idea.

When you get to be my age and condition, you don't remember anything.

What were we talking about?

Personal logo etotheipi Sponsoring Member of TMP12 Apr 2013 3:51 a.m. PST


Chris Rance12 Apr 2013 4:43 a.m. PST

Another yes vote.

Doug em4miniatures12 Apr 2013 5:42 a.m. PST

Since my post started this TMP link I must say "yes indeedy".
How does this poll stuff work? (I opted out of polls years ago).


Tommy2012 Apr 2013 6:49 a.m. PST

Seems unanimous!

The Tin Dictator12 Apr 2013 8:12 a.m. PST

Also, I'd like to be able to delete multiple messages at once rather than only one at a time.

I say yes. Though I was tempted to vote no just to be contrary.
