I find it very annoying everytime I go to my list of personal messages sent and received. They seem to be filed by date of origin which is confusing when I try to go back to find something and I can't remember the exact title or the complete username. Would you, like me, prefer to have all your messages to each individual friend filed in one spot rather than individual miscellaneous titles? I realize this may not be of interest to those who do not use the messages, but I have found that sometimes something is said by a friend in a posting that will necessitate a personal comment and in order to avoid messing up others' postingss it is preferable to go to personal messages. Filing all such individual messages under each friends' username I feel would be more practical. Anybody else agree?

I do agree with you, my lady. Even ignoring that myLot is not the fastest site around, it is so tedious to find one pm out of so many. I have so many pm conversations daily that I can't even find something that happened the day before. If you think you are going to need that pm, tag it. Then you can search by tag. I used to skip tagging my messages, but now, I try to tag them appropriately (even with the username) if I need I will need them later on. I really hope myLot will revamp the messaging system. Just changing it to something like a simple email type would be great.

Another that I gnu that I could count on. Thank you Your Grace. I do tag mostof my PMs but the problem is I have so many "senior moments" that I can't remember the tags. However, the idea of using the user name is great and I think I will give it a try until myLot comes up with a solution.....providing they agree with us, of course. PS: I was getting jealous every time I checked someone's profile and saw your "declaration". That is, until today when I went into mine to change my avatar....and for some unknown reason went to comments from my friends and there was might sitting, and shining right there on top. Tanks! +

That's why, my lady, try to use more than 1 tag. When you are doing the tagging, try to think what tag you would use to search for if you are looking for that message. Then put all the possible combinations. Granted it is not fool-proof, but it should work some of the times. And so my lady, you discovered that you have wronged me for so long when I have already given you my token of friendship for that long. I feel so hurt even though I didn't know until now. How do you intend to compensate me for my broken heart? An indecent kiss perhaps?

I'll have to think about repayment for awhile because I am late to watch the ManUtd vs AC Milan which is due to start in 14 mins and I still have to close down the computer, hit the WC, and take out the dog before I can get to the café about a 4min walk. Pls forgive me.

I think that's a great idea myself. I'd love to have my PMs grouped by the user's name. I have no idea how hard it would be to set up something like that because I have no knowledge in that area. The way the setup is now IS very confusing, to say the least.

I knew I could count on you claudia.....you are the goodest to least the say.....hehehehe....I'm in a good mood...Chelsea lost. It could be that it is not as easy I think it should be and that is why they don't do it. However, I would like to think that they didn't think of that but now that the matter has been raised they may well think of a way to do my bidding....hehehe....Me thinks that there are why to many "thinks" in that last sentence. No folks, I'm not high on anything and I haven't been drinking.....yet.....the game with MU and AC Milan won't be starting for another 75 minutes. +
