GM,

My mistake I thought you wante to know what to name it and I thought how about just passing thru? Could be a very useful feature. I am enjoying the site even thought new sites are always confusing to me at first.

The new messaging between buddies is good - have used it to send messages back and forth to a couple of people. I was sceptical but can now say I do like it.

It's private. You decide if you want someone to be able to send messages to you. Can get to know people on a more personal basis if you choose to do so.

Well done.

Waste of Time... I don't think it ever would be necessary to contact another member to chat about gas prices, if it comes to that I will be sure to rid the world of my existence first. Perhaps you should consider shaving your payroll instead of "upgrading" the site with idiotic features

I can not imagine the need to contact another member, and If I did, would be because I knew that person and would use normal email... I do not do text messaging, nor do I plan to do so.

It's really not that significant because I don't plan on contacting other members. There are better means of direct communication available by any of the several instant messaging programs. That's my two cents worth ... lol

The label should best describe the product.
Any member leaving a message is member messaging...
but a directed message to only one other, would be PRIVATE.
Clearly, of the two choices, there is but one good answer.
The poll results, while democratic, show little forethought.

I agree with my colleague.

TalkingGas sounds nice.

Now, what does it take to activate the system?

Still gets a kick that new posters don't know the system is and already has been in place for what, at least two months? Can you look up at the top of the page and see it's in place? I don't know why they don't lock this thread since the name has already been picked and the program running.

Names with 'gas' in them could become obsolete. Pipeline seems to work best since we may be pricing other fuels soon.How about Private Member Pipeline Messaging? PMPM!

giggle-that's neat. "GasMail" sure sounds the best to me.

But tell me, who on this board would not be considered a member?
This is a neat area to post answers on . I just found it today . Guess I'm rather slow in reading up on other things .

I suggest it be called Gasmail. Sounds a good idea to have some communication on gas prices and other relevantpieces of information.

This should be member messaging otherwise what is the point of being a member? I am for an open chat type communication, but don't want any more emails! As for a name I like Gas Line
