Default No difference in threads you participated in and the ones you didn't?

Hi Jim,

In earlier versions of the notication mail there was the text "You have been a participant in this discussion." This allowed me to distinguish between "my" and other threads in my e-mail program.

However, since a few days (longer?) this text is gone. Is it an option to add it back in?

Thanks and Happy New Year,

Imar

We added this feature and tested it, I can see the template for it but you're right that it isn't getting triggered. There should be a sentence in threads you've been a part of that says "You have been a participant in this discussion." I've got the programmer looking into what's wrong.

Yeah, it used to work; I am sure about that. Last message for me that contained it was this one: conversion of web site posted about a week ago.

Thanks,

Imar

Default Status of open requests

Hi Jim,

Earlier I added the following feature requests to this thread:
Quote:
1. Add a strike through button with associated strike tags. Very useful when you're editing a post and you want to take back what you said, or "remove" code from a post that is not needed.

2. Remove the formatting code in mail that gets sent; at least the part that is used for color coding code. I prefer to use my P2P posts over mail (I subscribed to a number of forums) and then decide whether I can post a reply or not. Currently, with all the formatting in the mail, it's almost impossible to read the text.

3. Fix the spacing issues. I know it's on your list, but yesterday I saw miscommunication between two posters because of the missing spaces.

... (4 and 5 are of this list)

6. Is it possible (through my settings or whatever) to have the Editor toolbar on Edits default to Full mode? I don't see the point of the minimized mode when editing.

7. Is it possible to get a copy of your own posts by mail?
Any idea what the status of these items is? I have seen a few fixes, but not all:

1. The code works, but the button isn't there yet. Not that important.

2. It seems that code and some other blocks are replaced, correct? However, I still get a gazillion tags when someone posts color coded code copied from Visual Studio for example, making the e-mail near to impossible to read.

3. Hasn't changed yet and is still pretty buggy and confusing.

6. Unchanged?

7. Unchanged?

8. Not on the earlier list, but I posted that later: the "you have been a participant in this thread" text is still missing in replies in e-mail. Any idea when this will be added back in? I can really use that feature as it allows me to mark messages I participated in in my mail program.

Thanks for looking into this....

Imar

I don't own the schedule on this but I'm asking to see when these will be addressed. I know the bigger priority is everything related to code display, spacing, clean emails.

On 8, I had closed this because it was working again now I see it isn't so I'm reopening it. There's some kind of intermittent issues that needs to be isolated.

No problem. What was it that Rousseau said? "Patience is bitter but the fruit is sweet"? ;-)

Imar: One of the items on the list was marked as resolved last night:
2. Remove the formatting code in mail that gets sent; at least the part that is used for color coding code.

Has been fixed. If you still get emails with formatting markup, let us know.

Sorry for not posted this earlier. I'm using NoScript on firefox and the site wasn't allowed to execute javascript, that was I referencing. There where no indications on the site that javascript was turned off.

Hi Jim,

The "you have been a participant" issue has been fixed. It looks good on all message sI have received so far.

However, now another issue has come up. For the exact same thread I get messages with different subjects. For example:

Use Stored Procedure as UpdateCommand by Forum subscription
Use Stored Procedure as UpdateCommand

The "by Forum subscription" suffix causes mail programs to see these as separate threads and as such cannot group them together. So I now end up with disconnected messages, may think a questions hasn't been answered only to find out later it is, in a different e-mail.

Is this by design and needed? If it was for me, I rather see it go.... ;-)

Sorry, hard to please.... ;-)

Imar
