Messaging other members?

  • 6 votes

i think it would be useful if we could message other members

this could be for asking specific quiestions

getting someone you know has made good resources in the past and request if they are able to do one on a specific topic

General chat - or maybe not when everyone should be busy revising!

but then again the discussion boards could be used for the same thing , although counter to that argument many people don't check them

and you don't want people annoying other members by personal messaging

So maybe you could just be able to personal message people in your study groups?

Any way guys, what do you think?

i agree, i mean i try to ask a question for a specific peron but the wrong person answers it or that the whole thread is deleted and so is the answer you are looking for too...so its better to message target GR users so that they could directly open their inbox and reply to it

Just a quick note to say, as promised we now have a solution to direct messaging of other members. This service is now available within our subscriber offering and allows you to contact any member directly from a resource or user profile.

All registers users whether a subscriber or not can respond to a subscriber's message.

I think it'd be way easier to contact specific people, and also safer than the current way people share E-mails to do so... it would help to protect us, too?

Yeah this is a good idea because if you need a specific resource that you know someone has then you can easily find it by asking them

We agree that being able to ask other members of the community questions directly is a valuable benefit.

Obviously the direct contact of other members is something we have to be careful with to protect our users from inappropriate activity.

We are therefore looking at introducing a manageable solution and there will be a further update on this soon.
