Suggestion For Mylot Suggestions
February 7, 2017 6:20pm CST
I recently shared a key Mylot Admin message around my Mylot reader-friends addressing repairs to a photo-relating problem on the comments, which has now been fixed, before I even knew it had been a problem. Yay! What struck me was how slow it was to share the good news with over 1,100 people I’m following (though those who had already received the message through other contacts were excluded to spare them receiving the messages and links multiple times). As I clicked through the share/send options on everyone I know here, I found myself wishing for a simple one click sends to all option that would have done the lot in seconds. However it would leave those with fewer contacts or who themselves read and decide posts later with no one left to share anything with. I guess there are no easy answers. Arthur Chappell

I have to say that I would like to see check-boxes so that one could select the followers to suggest the discussion to and then a single 'Suggest' or 'Send' button. I also think that it could be made easier if there were a 'dynamic search' facility (i.e. one would type the first letters of a username to select/see users beginning with those letters). With over 1000 followers (a number which I strive to reduce from time to time by blocking and unblocking users who no longer seem to be active), it becomes almost impossible to suggest discussions to people I feel would benefit or be interested! It's possible that a 'block suggest' feature was purposely not implemented in order to discourage spamming.
