New site feature: contact community members

For a while now Pixel Scrapper users have been requesting the ability to send private messages to other community members. In fact, this is the feature request that has received the most votes to date.

Private messaging systems are complex, and there are a lot of aspects to consider... with so much going on right now, I'm not ready to implement such a system quite yet.

For now, I've implemented an intermediate solution: when browsing the forums, you'll now see a "contact" link below a user's profile picture:

This link allows you to send the user an email via a personal contact form. You won't have to worry about spam, or privacy, because:

  1. The contact form does not reveal the email address of the person who is being contacted.
  2. The contact link is only visible to other community members (not anonymous browsers).
  3. Every user can disable their personal contact form via their account settings page if they want to.

Be aware that users who send spam or unsolicited advertising via the contact forms will have their accounts suspended.

I hope this will be a useful contact feature to hold us over until we have a private messaging system in place.

Thank you Jordan, this could be very helpful. Also, I would think that this is as good or better than a PM feature!

Thank you Jordan for the great new feature.

This is awesome! My first thought was to send messages about my webstore and designer call but I don't think that is what is intended. I think there are so many other reasons that you would want to contact other scrappers though. Love it! xoxox Beth
