Matt, hey..
any way to make a pop up message, without using messaging, to ask someone if they'd like to talk?
something along the lines of user to user level chat?

maybe it's here, but i just dun know?

i know i can create a room, but is there anything like a window to window connection?

thanks!

Sounds like the PM/DM feature, but with a wrapper to bring it up like the chat bar? If there is a plug-in for this, I imagine someone may have looked at it already. I agree a faster method of getting in touch with someone would be cool.

*Poke* @creature

:p

More direct messaging would be cool but PLEASE no poke feature. There are better ways of getting in contact with people than that. They're more a nuisance than anything else what with having people sending you pointless notifications, over and over and over and over. I'll just end up ignoring all of them out of spite.

there's really just not enough demand for something like this and our pre-existing features are close enough, i mean if you want to 'poke' someone, you could just tag them in something like @Matt Derrick and they'll get an alert, which is pretty much the exact same thing as a 'poke'.

It’s fucked but we’re getting it from both the left and right these days; partly out of sheer contrarianism I’ve started learning a lot about my Jewish heritage in the past few years,& think if I go on the road again may plan on visiting different communities... Absolutely fuck skit and their full-on alt-right talking points.
Oh the pain! So much pain. Lol boo boo though.

Taking time off from rural AZ, back in the city. Towed car, but cheap hostel room in LV. Oh well, will get to check out some car auctions soon.
