A guild leader should be able to set the email option to be ON as default. Members can then shut it off if they like.

Even bettter is that the email option could be set to be ONLY ON. Then if a member does not like it they can remove themself from the site.

The real key to keeping a guild together is communication. And if email is shut off you are then at the whim of the member looking at the site.

That's not such a bad idea.

Oftentimes even the automatic inactivity warnings can't go through because that's set to OFF.

Heya!

Actually biggest problem that's caused by that is that we've already been blacklisted by Hotmail because people have been reporting those e-mails as spam, even though they have e-mail enabled on their account.  Thanks to them, people have to check their junk mail folders for responses when they send in a support ticket.

There used to be a feature (actually it still might be a feature hiding somewhere) that would allow you to see who was blocking e-mails from the site, so that you could smack them around a bit.  Since it's so hidden, it's not going to be of much use, so I'll go ahead and code something for the control panel (under Site Members) that will show who's blocking e-mail and maybe provide a couple options (send a nasty-gram from the guild leader, boot them from the group, etc).

That could be a useful workaround.

Thanks.

This would be a great feature Ive actually disbaled the inactivity option on our site .. as I found that majority of the time people didnt want emails .. and it didnt work .. we put a queston in the applicaitons registration asking for emails .. but then for some reason a short while abck all applicaitons for each member where wiped .. so we no longer ahve them

So this would certainly get my support
