Either way is fine with me. Every post already has the link to the profile, so I'm not having any trouble finding my friends, although I suppose as the membership grows, it will become more difficult.
Which brings up a question - when someone new signs up, how will you know to add them if they don't post?
I was wondering if an excel spreadsheet would work. It would be easy to make and update. As I recall from using excel, you could also use hyperlinking in it. Would just need to be able to download it onto the forum.
Should also have people provide all info at the time they sign up for the forum. Would make it much easier.
Just my two cents worth.
Do what's easier for you, it will make things easy for us so a big thank you....Dani
I’ve just read a post by Druid in the thread Search for friends.It would probably be best if you read it,I don’t know how to quote it & paste it here.
It might be useful for creating your alphabetical list.
Here's my post:
Yes! Reply to ANY post, & in the "to" box, type the 1st letter of that person's name. You'll get a dropdown list of everyone who has that letter in their name.
Thanks Druid and Roo--Excellent idea! Ada
Side note: The Special Room inhabitants: Riddler is back and will be joining us here again soon! He asked me to let ya'll know. Yay!!
Sounds good to me. Whatever is easiest for you.
Okay, it's starting to look like folks are leaning toward option 2. So, thanks for the ideas (Excel spreadsheet, platforms, etc). I'm new at doing the linking instructions Jenifer gave me, so I made screen shots and printed them to follow. I have to say I'm not proficient with Excel (and trying to add linking too), but I am happy to group the members alphabetically by platform. Just remember, this will strictly be a member list page....not for posting "in". The point of the names being clickable links is so you can click on a friend in the list and send your PM's, or add them as a friend, etc.
Also, since I'll be using the linkable name, which may be different from game names or wish list names, I'll also add those in parentheses if available since some may only know their friends by their game name (or name on wish list)--(i.e., Redcloud (Dani)). I hope this is plain as mud to everyone and feel free to let me know if I'm missing anything.
Ada. I know some excel. Would be happy to work with you on this. I was thinking people could download a spreadsheet for whatever reason they may want. I could see a number of ways it could be put together and sorted to include BFG and Delphi names, BFG ID. Could have real first name. Could have a number of items. Let me know if you want to move this way.
