Multiple recipient CM (in General)

PeterGriffin August 25 2008 8:15 AM EDT

I think this has been brought up in the past but it would be nice if there was a way to send CM to multiple people in 1 go like the clan CM but maybe a way for supporters to make their own mail groups or just the ability to have an address book where you can go in and add users to the group and when you want to send a CM to all of them you just check the ones you want and send the message. I can also see how this could be an issue with some users abusing it but I am sure our wonderful admins would love to enforce fines for abuse.

Just a thought and a nice convenience for people who need to send multiple CMs to users.

I think I once suggested something similar to this on CB1 and the response I got was "Copy and paste it." I don't remember why though, just to copy and paste.

yeah I know how to copy and paste, that isn't the point. It would still be easier if there was a way to do it. Jon has made major improvements in the system and with his new partner I do not see this option as that big of a project to tackle. I am very confident that Jon and his admins are good enough to figure this one out and it would help me.

I fail to see how this enhances the fighting experience of CB.

I could understand that you want to massmail the participants of an off-topic fantasy football league, but can't you simply ask for their email addresses upon entry and send your updates through email?

You can but for some reason allot of cb players don't check their email regularly and I hate cluttering up emails with little short messages, also since the fantasy football league is only for CB users then CB communication is preferred, also allot of email servers will detect that emails from the fantasy football site are spam and they will junk them and that makes for issues to some people who don't think to check junk and don't know how to make it as not junk and if I send out a message or need an answer on some questions and not everybody gets the message then usually people get upset but on CB I know when they got their message.

This could also be beneficial to Tournaments, other contests, and also for loaners. I am not thinking strictly for my benefit I really think that this could help allot of people.

Please don't hammer the idea just because it doesn't help you specifically, and no it isn't an enhancement on our fighting experience but it is a helpful user enhancement that may make some people happy.

Oh and a little smack talk to another clan is always fun and helps the competitiveness of the game.

A friends list would come in handy.Search user is a bit cumbersome.
