Avatars on Pager Messages

Pagers are ace

But if you've got more than one conversation on the go it can be difficult to send the right reply to the right person sometimes :doh:

Could we have avatars as well as usernames displayed at the top of the pager box?

Anybody else think it's a good idea?

Re: Avatars on Pager Messages

You been sending naughty messages again Daddio?

But, I do agree with you. That is putting avatars on pager messages and having smutty private messages to the ladies.... :zen:

Re: Avatars on Pager Messages

No thanks! It just means that the system will be even slower for some users - as we already know some users computers crash if they have the sound on when using the pager system, so they will be even more cut off if we were to add avatars Plus it will slow it down even more for any WAP/mobile users

Sorry to **** on your parade

It's not me matey - it runs just sweet on my iPhone
And my computer is used to dealing with 2 and 3 gig photoshop files and far bigger video files

I am thinking about the others!

It would be nice to see the avatars, but I can also read the name at the top so I don't make silly mistakes like that

Re: Avatars on Pager Messages

So VD - which male forum member have you just propositioned?

And are you only claiming it was a mistake because they turned you down?

Re: Avatars on Pager Messages

Before we support such a scheme, I think VD should own up, and tell us the story of what he did which has prompted him to think this is necessary
