Enable Personal Messaging for all members but set the default for receipt of Personal Messages for all members to Ignore All.

 

Members should choose to accept messages from other members on a per member request basis. Add to Community Private Messenger Settings the options for Ignore All / Accept All / Accept or Ignore Individually.

Thanks Joe. We had a new member abusing the Personal Messaging service. Stephen is on the case already.

 

The original scheme that wasn't working was to disallow Personal Messaging until a member was active in the Community. This disadvantaged newbies. So, my idea is to allow Personal Messaging automatically but to prevent abuse it's up to individual members to select whether they wish to receive unsolicited messages from all or none or selected members only. The default being receive no messages except from TalkTalk authorised members.

 

But, hey, thanks for the contribution.

Hi Joe...if only I had time to get in to even more social media!  Thanks for the heads-up. I hadn't heard about 'meetup' but my social calendar is already overloaded with local meetings!

 

Awesome thought though!
