Sending a postcard

Travel Forums System Talk Sending a postcard

1. Posted by Ahila (Inactive 1529 posts) 9y

Hi there, TP System Developers,
I wanted to know if it is possible to send postcards from the photography section to TP members. Currently, one can only send to those whose full email address is known. It might be nicer, however to be able to send a New Year greeting, for example, to a fellow TP member using their username without having to know their email address (in keeping with the TP policy ;)).

Cheers,
Ahila.

That's a good idea :) I guess there would simply be an extra option to send it to a specific username.

Oooohhh, that is a good idea! It would be much easier.

I've sent photos as post cards to other TP members and have had to ask for their e-mail address to do so...

And that will kill some sense of surprise as the person you asked for the address would figure out that something is heading his or her way.

Do we have enough votes for the powers that be, to add this to the 'requests to consider' list? ;)

This idea proved too good to resist and has now been implemented. Check out this entry on the Travellerspoint blog for details and some screenshots :)

Hope you enjoy!!
