    Hi,

    [I suggested this way back, another attempt to request and suggest]

    There has been a persistence issue with PM me the URL, info yada yada kind of posts. This generates thousands of useless posts that should be prevented.

    We can have some kind of facility to reply to the post via PM.

    It can be like this at the end of each post there can be a "Send PM" button:
    [​IMG]

    If some one clicks on the "Send PM" button in a Post, it will prefill the Recipients(user to whom message to be sent), Title and Message for the new PM:

    The Title of the PM will be Thread title, the Message will get pre-filled with "In Reply to your Post "Title of the post". Something like this:

    [​IMG]

    This can make the things a bit easy as with just one click one can send a pre-filled PM to the poster. For sure it will also reduce the pm me info / url / yada yada kind of posts.

    There is a VB hack to achieve this. See here:
    http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=94013

    Is this something that we can do at DP.:eek:

    Just a humble suggestion again.:rolleyes:

    Awesome suggestion. Gonna save us a LOT of time, coz usually if I can't post my inquiries, I don't bother PMing coz of too many hassles and effort that goes with it (typing subject, explaining which thread I'm talking about, etc), so I just don't bother coz I am lazy. :p

    But this mod is SO not gonna turn me off PMing anymore. :)

    I think it would be a great feature to have, would save time filling in the details.

    Thanks Brian

    It looks like an awesome idea. Not sure what the consequences might be though with having this.

    One can just click on the username and select "Send PM to...." takes hardly a second more.

    It does not automatically include all post details & post link.

    This would be especially good for B/S/T. People often send me PM's from B/S/T without enough context to tell what the heck they are responding to.

    They send PM's like "Yes, we can do that." or "Yes, the site is still for sale." or "Please make me an offer."

    We can't cure human stupidity, but we can make it easier for them to fake intelligence.
