Quote from: IchBin™ on June 11, 2012, 05:33:04 PMHow does it know who you're sending it to until you hit send?
QuoteIf someone starts to send a PM, the system has to check the recipients username does it not? I assume this is the suggester Arantor mentions, how else how would a deleted member be checked?
QuoteSo for each topic list of posts the system has to check the user exists anyway and populates the post icons, could a check not be built in there to see if PM is blocked?
QuoteSurely a call to the current PM checking function that tests for who to receive PMs from is needed which in turn could switch off the icons dependent on that result. Would that hit of 20 to 30 extra calls be so large?
QuoteI don't know what function is called to say, place the AIM/ICQ/YIM icons against a post but it must be done for each member for any topic page of posts, maybe adding into that function, the check for recipient of PM could be added? which would lessen the queries used?
QuoteObviously "Please please my lack of knowledge" means little and my post was not a criticism but you've obviously taken it that way. I'll bow out now.
QuoteArantor, many rather helpful support specialists really don't understand what you imply when you say "Yay for hurting performance!". The more in-depth explanations you and emanuele gave was really helpful in providing some relative idea of how many additional queries a feature like that would add.
QuoteIt would take at least 100 hours of study for any one of us to follow the code well enough to begin to ferret out for ourselves what you and emanuele explained.
