Suggestion: Cancel CM (in General)

[P]Mitt November 21 2007 7:48 PM EST

I was wondering if it would be in the general interest of the community here to have an option to cancel a CM that is sending, but the recipient hasn't received.

I'm sure I'm not the only one that has sent a CM to someone, saying that I'm interested in buying an item they're selling, only to realize that 1) I don't have enough money or 2) Somebody else is selling the same item for cheaper.
A "cancel unreceived CM" function would not only be useful in this way, but also when players CM multiple admins if they need urgent help - after all, not all admins are on 24/7. But once an admin has responded, wouldn't it make sense to cancel the unreceived CMs to the OTHER admins - after all, not sending anything after the conflict was resolved would only serve to confuse the other admins, and an extra "Oh, never mind, I got it fixed" would serve to clutter up their other chatmails?

Just an innocent suggestion to make life easier :)

I like it. Then I can send Edy all kinds of derogatory chatmails and not ever have to have him read them.

It makes sense. Why not?

Yeah, sounds good.

I'm for it.

Good idea.

This would save me the annoyance of having the CMS I send to newbies stay on my CM page for a whole week, when I know full well that they will never get answered.

Reduces the clutter. Makes sense.

Good idea =D

BluBBen November 22 2007 3:57 AM EST

It's a really good idea, please Jon?

Wasp [C and S Forgery Lmtd.] November 22 2007 4:00 AM EST

Not a half bad idea. I've had a few times where they haven't received it but the message is "outdated" IE a situation is changed rendering the message pointless.

Good idea!!

Sounds good :)

Dark Dreky November 22 2007 1:50 PM EST

Yep. I like it. =)

What kind of chance do we have to see this being implemented?

{cb1}Linguala November 23 2007 3:25 PM EST

unless the CM system uses a similar system to that of minion training/untraining, not much I think...

Flamey November 23 2007 8:05 PM EST

Why would the CM system be near the training system?

This is an excellent idea.

(golf clap) very good indeed.

I've wanted this ability for a while. Hope it gets implemented.
