Any chance of activating a Ctrl Click, and Shift Click in the Message Center to select groups of Classmates to receive email. That would help a lot if want to start an email string amongst several classmates.

Will discuss this internally. We deliberately didn't make it easy for Classmates to select multiple Classmates. They can do it but they have to do it one at a time and even then the max we allowed is 20. Had to keep this one in check, too many complaints about gigantic group emails that never stopped. What we arrived at seems to be a pretty good balance. I'm not opposed to Admins having the ability to have an easier multi-Classmate selection option in Message Center though.

I Agree with Brad..I had a situation like that about 2-3 wks before the drove me nuts..looking at the messages coming from everyone who was emailed.
Please don't change it..give admins the right to do it is ok in my book. At least the Webmaster can reel in the's hard to reel in your alumni.

I didn't know about the limit of 20 e-mails for a given classmate but if even that had been in place before one of my members selected everyone it would have been a godsend. I can't begin to tell you what a nightmare that created.

Please don't make it any easier to create e-mail lists unless restricted to admins and in my opinion even that isn't neccesary as we have the capability to e-mail the class.

Okay, I can see the problem with the bigger classes. I only have 41 of 83 registered.

Almost funny, I can't get these "older" people to use the Message Forum, but they literally thrive on a full class email like this for days. Full class email essentially IS A FORUM, at least like Message Forum.

Agree, wouldn't want a classmate to be able to send to all like that, and the limit of 20 seems just fine.

I still believe though, if JUST an Administrator privilege, it could be put to good use and controlled. Apparently the 20 classmate limit is not applying to Administrator anyway, as many more are making it.

As FC pointed out we really want to encourage Admins to use the Email The Class feature anyway for multiple Classmate emails. Although I will confirm that the 20 limit is in place only for Classmates in Message Center as stated above, there is no limit currently for Admins.
