I would love that idea! I really like the idea of sending like all of my Christmas/Easter/St. Pattyday. Stuff in one big glup but i think it might lead to Spam and such.

But, wouldn't there be spam either way? I think it's a good idea

This is a very good idea and may be very helpful. I know that a lot of us are rule-abiding citizens of WI, but there are still people who will use it as a way to send chain messages and spam.

Correct are those who pointed out the Spam infringement. Though your theories prove worthy and could possibly aim back at the predicament at hand, it's very unlikely. In the equation f(x) = 100x we make a table of values and lo and behold (please don't pay attention to the - numbers. They are fill-in's.) we see that over time our numbers go up. So, I made a corresponding graph attached -- and though it's simple math, I thought I would point out the small errors in this case.



Although it's a great idea -- think about it. Politicians and Lobbyists could come, free advertising for Av and Sig Shops, random "x" (said things) coming and VMing out "all" of WI; thus breaking code 14 "no commercial advertising" - it's an absolute must not.



So I do apologize that the majority of the party votes otherwise, but it's the way simple voting works (although I'd rather not get into the whole game).



Have a nice day, and I've attached two quotes that I thought presented thoughtful commentary.

If the trollers got a hold of it, there's would be mass chaos and a LOT of cleaning that the mods would need to do.

Good point. But, there could be a special button for the staff and modes ONLY that could delete all of those messages. Like, it would have a thing showing it was a mass vm message, and then there could be a special "Delete all mass messages?" button

Besides, I believe this option is not quite probable. --> https://www.vbulletin.com/order/

Maybe if we could only send it to 5 people at a time like pms, but both sides have good points. I'm not sure if its a good idea or not.

Default Re: Mass VM Messaging? (:

I agree! It would be much easier to send holiday cards out in mass rather than one at at time. Besides, there is going to be spam with or without the use of mass messaging. Great suggestion!
