Wow, you just bumped a thread a year old...

Anyways, give us an option to disable the bar.

Would it possible for the yellow bar (which is often mistaken for the mail notification) to only appear once and then go away?



I have another suggestion. Why is the yellow bar telling me about joinings "more useful" than the yellow bar telling me about mails? As shogun I have the "you were hit with a rock..." or "new member eagerly..." stripe visible ALWAYS because we are always waiting to some joinings to fix something and thus I have to look to "Mail" if there is some number telling me they have a new mail?

May I suggest something like merging the messages if shoguns and above have some joinings in the dynasty AND some new mail? Something like "new member is eagerly waiting for acceptance and you have new mail too" or something like that?

Whoa :idea: :) If we can't get another alert for mail, like a red (maybe flashing?) "NEW" appearing at or over mail in the menu ..... then this is the only and best suggestion to the problem I have seen ...why have it taken so long? ... Would that be hard to make? How soon can we can get it? We've waited yrs already :cry:

It would be a great help for us in dynasties where it's only emp and maybe 1 more accepting members, I come on and see a joiner and hurry to accept because they have waited long already and then I see I have a mail alert that was hiding under the joiner alert and the mail say not to accept yet cause 1 of my members is already on it waiting for response from the joiner.

This topic was dead from 2 years ago, it's ok guessing everyone was happy with how the bar is working?

Anyway, I don't find the point about changing it. I'll use Frank's words...

The alert is only displayed to shoguns and higher ranks.


really you have shoguns that can't find a mail or can't click a [x] when the bar is there?

As a long time member. I do like a notice telling me that I have a mail and a joiner. When you get both at the same time, it's a lot more darned convenient to have both alerts at the same time instead of one masking the other.

Having both bars show up at the same time would make things alot easier and lots more conveient and easier.

No one say it's hard but it's inconvenient when 1 alert hides the other and you beat me to it, I don't know if its hard for shoguns, I am emp but mostly I am a person who can't see through one alert and find the other.
Not using chat I use our mail system to communicate with my members and a disguised mail alert means I seem to ignore a member. I know I can look at mail in menu and see if there's a number but it's so small that it doesn't catch my attention.

It's just your opinion ;) I'll ignore this kind of comments (but you can keep saying them, i know you like it and i'm glad if you get happy so easily ;) )

------------

I wasn't being sarcastic, what i feel is very surprised because it was all good during last two years.

No it was never good, the topic was being killed by the admins with either smock condescending remarks like yours and the one you quote or silence.
There never were any ideas/suggestions to solve the annoyance until today thanks to Jay apparently browsing old wishes and trying to come up with solutions.

To be honest, I do not come with ideas because there is always an admin with comments, and generally not nice comments (guess who) that's why I com no longer with ideas or solutions. There are plenty of things that needs improvement/correction/change for the better ...... but because I do not make a topic about that subject , does not mean it is good !!!!!

(Sorry when i use wrong words, My English *****)

Ferrari, all comments/suggestions/ideas are taken seriously. Im currently looking through all previous suggestions to see what if anything can be done. Yes not every idea will be liked by everyone & some will comment negatively (even admins). Post them anyway, as the idea you didnt post, may well be the idea to unlock an even better site

Off course not all ideas will be liked by all but for an admin to answer:

Means that if the admin don't see the point (maybe because she is in a dynasty where many pitch in?) then there is no use for the idea. That is arrogant, condescending and disrespectful.
Not to mention:
Alba wrote:

implying I and my members are too stupid to figure out how to close the alert. doesn't really say: come with your ideas.

Dear Pilar: sometimes if it's HH and I have tons of tabs open or for some other reason can't deal with the joiner right away, I keep the bar open so I wont forget there is a joiner waiting, I don't have a team to take care of things for me and I do sometimes forget things. If members mail me at the same time I will appear to be ignoring them.

I still vote for 2 separate alerts both in plain sight so even forgetful overburdened idiots like me can see I have 2 things waiting to be dealt with. :wink:

I want to make something clear:

I did not mean to attack Alba as a person.

In the previous suggestion thread where I posted, I attacked the negativity that always comes up in threads here and in this thread I wanted to say to Alba / the admins that it goes both ways. They too have a share in how the tone becomes in threads, how their replies can frustrate members to the mudslinging corner. (insert waving peace flag emoticon here)

:) I like the double bar. Much more convient and easier to manage the dynasty. I do have members that won't come into chat for whatever reason and i don't try to push as they are core clickers and if they don't want to, I don't push. In fact I had one member tell me she would only return if I did not ask her to come into chat and since she's a 1k clicker with min avg of 1000, I complied and allowed her to just click. I communicated with her via mail. So you can say yes I do need the alerts. I don't need it hidden. Since nearly all the big emps are for it and want it badly, why can't we have it? Why? why?
