On this page, I can see all of the people who are members of my group. I'd like to be able to contact one or more of them via email from this page if possible. Ideally, you would be able to check one or more Members and have a "Email Member(s)" button at the bottom of the list just like the "Accept selected" button. When clicked, you'd see a single 'Send Email' area at the bottom of the page like you get when you approve someone as a Member of the group, but would be able to edit the message Subject and Text. The one email would then be delivered to all of the selected group members.
Until I read your post, I had no idea one could have a "personal group" on CP. What have I been missing: is that why I feel lonely, sometimes
However, I think I can still comment meaningfully, by saying, that, in my opinion, anything on CP that would allow you to over-ride another member's personal settings for whether or not they receive e-mail, would be a no-go here.
Whether or not CP chooses, at some point, to add some option to members' profiles' preferences relating to group membership and e-mail permissions: well, that's another story. Perhaps: you wish to propose that here ?
Assuming you can somehow post a message where all your "group's" members will see it (can this be done ?), why not invite them to share their e-mail with you, if they wish you to have access to it, by enabling e-mail responses to your message of invitation ?

Agreed, but this idea may have some merit and still remain within the individual user's personal settings. An "email all" option could still respect this setting and just not mail those members who have that flag set.
Thanks for your thoughts. We most certainly don't want to override anyone's personal account settings. <u>What I'm looking for is an easy way to communicate with people in my group</u>, and i think CP already has almost everything that would be needed to do this.
Your idea about sharing email addresses is fine, but I really don't even want them to have to do that. CP already has their email; I just want to send them notifications every so often that they might be interested in. If an "opt-out" feature is part of that, that's fine too, and probably a good thought.
I searched by author[^], and found that his old profile name is causing some style issues. If you check any of his message before 10th August in search page, it will show the forum name in blue instead of orange. [Checked in Chrome22, IE9]
I noticed that earlier his name was styled with following, which causes problem.
I think computer viruses should count as life. I think it says something about human nature that the only form of life we have created so far is purely destructive. We've created life in our own image.
I create a new article in the last weekend and think it will useful for the community. I received some message from site admins/supervisors that the post must contains more detail to publish it as an article. Ok, I decided to expand it but when i tried to open it i realised it was deleted (empty). So I dont understand why happend it to me when I takes time to share useful informations with others.
Your article has been published here[^] in the Tips & Tricks section. If you click on the "My Articles" link from the drop down produced when hovering over your name at the top of the page, you can find it from there.
One of these days I'm going to think of a really clever signature.
