E-mail Reply Requests-Please Don't!!!
 
Please do not ask for e-mail replies to posts. You are unlikely to get them

Firstly it is useful for others to see the replies.

Secondly it is a rule of the forums that personal information including your own be not given out. That includes e-mail addresses.

If you want E-mail notification that you have a reply to your post in the forums, ensure that the e-mail Notification box below the message window is checked.

What are you talking about Hobo? Are people asking you for your e-mail or something?:confused:

Only A Hobo August 17th, 2005 03:56 PM

I have seen 3 or posts recently with people asking for replies to be sent by E-mail A few newbies will read them and think they can ask for personal replies too and before long the forums will be running a personal answering service. Just trying to nip this thing in the bud.

And if answers start getting sent by e-mail the answerers e-mails addresses will be out there and we certainly don't want that.

All the best for now.

Very good point Only A Hobo,

I would also add another to the reasons you have given, is that every spam collecting company out there will have it also, and the guests or members e-mail will be flooded with more spam (junk) e-mail than they want.

Of course I might be wrong:rolleyes:

It's very understandable not to give out your e-mail. With my luck, I would probably have some lunatic constantly e-mailing me crap! Not to mention the LimeWire Forum would probably end up turning into one of the other message boards that I went on to and believe me, no one would want that!!

Guys

I have weird newbies PM-ing me "Help Me", "I want to be your friend" and other nonsense like that, I just delete them.

And there is no way I would give out my email to a wierdo newbie.

Do you have something against private messaging? I have sent private messages to others. Does that make me a 'weirdo' too?

Only A Hobo August 19th, 2005 07:32 AM

Of course not ... just keep that darn plant away from me :)

You have misread, or misunderstood, my post e.g. would you PM someone that PM'd you with "I want to be your friend"?

Maybe my sense of humor is a little dry(don't answer back!:D) but it sounds kinda funny! It sounds like something a kid in grade school would say.
