Request for NS (in General)

How difficult would it be to have a little gif image of an envelope show up in the BA box when you have an unread chatmail? And is that something you may be able to institute? maybe for a fee/donation?

Demigod April 25 2010 5:13 PM EDT

Demi supports this.

AdminTal Destra April 25 2010 5:18 PM EDT

i like it

{Wookie}-Jir.Vr- April 25 2010 5:23 PM EDT

Please! To the right, so it reads

'BA' (get more) [mail]

DrAcO5676 [The Knighthood III] April 25 2010 5:26 PM EDT

↑ Exactly

Canibus April 25 2010 5:56 PM EDT

very good idea, it cant fail :)

AdminTitan [The Sky Forge] April 25 2010 6:21 PM EDT

It's too big to fail!

Salketer [big bucks] April 25 2010 6:22 PM EDT

I'd put the Icon next to the user's name instead... But good idea.

DrAcO5676 [The Knighthood III] April 25 2010 9:35 PM EDT

Well since the BA auto updates i figure it should be easier to code it so that the Mail will show up in that box... rather than the other boxes that dont update.

Flamey April 25 2010 9:37 PM EDT

Draco's on the ball.

{WW]Nayab [Cult of the Valaraukar] April 25 2010 10:29 PM EDT

Supported 100% :)

AdminNightStrike April 25 2010 10:53 PM EDT

Um.. I generally file all of that ajax stuff under "Fex"

He responds much better to flirtation.

::Jir stares at Demi::

Demigod April 25 2010 11:25 PM EDT

Well, I'm done supporting this idea.

DrAcO5676 [The Knighthood III] April 26 2010 7:27 PM EDT

I would still love to see this change... can an admin change the name to Request for Verifex?

Flamey April 26 2010 7:56 PM EDT

::Flamey stares at fex lovingly::

AdminQBVerifex [Serenity In Chaos] April 27 2010 12:02 PM EDT

Oh yeah, I could do this, I would need a hour maybe or so.

AdminNightStrike April 27 2010 12:03 PM EDT

Can you put it where it makes more sense than BA?

AdminTitan [The Sky Forge] April 27 2010 12:07 PM EDT

Like next to your user name.

AdminTal Destra April 27 2010 12:07 PM EDT

just make the home button like bright green when you have a CM waiting

Demigod April 27 2010 12:08 PM EDT

Some of us don't use Home to get CMs

Wasp [C and S Forgery Lmtd.] April 27 2010 12:27 PM EDT

Next to your user name would probably be best :)

AdminTal Destra April 27 2010 12:29 PM EDT

just because you get it in a different spot doesn't meant that the check for CMs wouldn't make it green(or whatever)... you would still use your place

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] April 27 2010 2:05 PM EDT

i like the idea and if it can link to the chatmail page that would be great! would it also be possible then to choose not to have cm's delivered in either the chat applet or the home page and just have the icon notification as i sometimes miss cm's delivered to my homepage and do not see them until much too late.

DrAcO5676 [The Knighthood III] April 28 2010 12:31 AM EDT

I love where this is going and I thank you Verifex and NS (for pointing me to the man who can do it). I love all the positive feedback this has brought about...

Demigod April 28 2010 12:41 AM EDT

Considering the countless times I've checked the chatmail page just to see if I'm missing something, I love that's it's being added. Thanks again to both of you.

AdminTitan [The Sky Forge] April 28 2010 12:45 AM EDT

It should be very very easy to link it.

smallpau1 - Go Blues [Lower My Fees] April 28 2010 2:38 AM EDT

I'm confused why this is needed, I go 'Home' and either I see a CM there, or I miss it, even though it was there. If this is added, I will miss the CM when it was on the 'Home' page, then the mail icon will disappear, and it didn't do it's job still.

I can see it helping if you come back from being afk, and just start fighting away, you'll see the icon eventually, but anything other than that, I am not so sure of, someone enlighten me?

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] April 28 2010 2:48 AM EDT

I am guessing some people like to be on CB a lot and don't like to click on home very often. This will tell them when they have a message waiting for them to look at. All in all its not very important. Just a nice little helper thing.

DrAcO5676 [The Knighthood III] April 28 2010 2:56 AM EDT

{cb1}smallpau1 2:38 AM EDT I'm confused why this is needed, I go 'Home' and either I see a CM there, or I miss it, even though it was there. If this is added, I will miss the CM when it was on the 'Home' page, then the mail icon will disappear, and it didn't do it's job still.

How do you see chatmails on your home page? The only way to see them is if you have chatmail delivery enabled on your chat applet (if you even have that running) or by going to your chatmail in community... I don't have chat running so the only way for me to tell if I have a chatmail is by going to the chatmail page...

I as well as many other use auctions and buy stuff... and when you get outbid this will make it easier to tell if you have been outbid or not... without keeping a constant eye on your auctions.

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] April 28 2010 3:00 AM EDT

Under Settings, on the left hand side preferences there are two options for chat-mail. One is send chat-mail to PM in the chat applet. The other is send chat-mail to the Home page. I have had it on Home page for years. It shows up nice and big. There is almost no way to miss it except for maybe a short server message. The being outbid message is pretty noticeable though.

DrAcO5676 [The Knighthood III] April 28 2010 3:07 AM EDT

interesting O_o

Salketer [big bucks] April 28 2010 4:11 AM EDT

I also have it set to send on main page but I have CB open 24/7 and hitting "home" once in a while to watch my chatmails... It isn't much work for US to simply click the link and see our chatmails but it would still be somewhat useful to have this option.

Veriflex said he would do it in the other useless thread about changes. Please make sure you forward any thoughts about it to him before he finishes his magical ritual.

Oh that remainds me I have finished watching Charmed... hehe

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] April 28 2010 4:14 AM EDT

Would it update automatically like BA does, without needing the sidebar to be refreshed?

If you need to refresh the sidebar to see this, isn't that just like pressing 'home'?

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] April 28 2010 4:18 AM EDT

(Just wanted to add, if it updates automatically, that's pure win! Totally awesome! ;) )

Demigod April 28 2010 7:31 AM EDT

I CMed Vex about it yesterday. Yes, it'll update automatically. I'm not sure what the delay will be, but I assume not terribly long. For someone like me who leaves CB up all day, it's quite helpful.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] April 28 2010 10:43 AM EDT

i miss cm on my homepage quite often, i think what happens is that i hit home and then decide to go somewhere else or i think that i didn't actually click it so i click it again. i am not sure how else it can happen, but it does happen fairly regularly to me.

this is why i also asked to allow us to not have a choice of the two on settings (basically leave them both unchecked) and just use the icon as our only notifier.

AdminNightStrike April 28 2010 11:00 AM EDT

Adding that other setting shouldn't be hard even without the Fex change.
