txt buddy section
« on: September 25, 2013, 10:11:47 pm »
I may very well still be stuck in the past, but I think it would be nice to somehow let other TC members have your phone number for txting.  

Perhaps an optional field on member profiles, assuming you must be logged in to see the content of a member profile.

OK to text me? {y/n}  phone number {_______________}.  Maybe have some kind of a text-back verification to reduce the amount of abuse this can get.

Possibly a locked thread that won't be indexed by spiders/bots.  The only people that can access it are those that clicked an OK2TXT option on their profile.

I like the first option of having it all on a member profile better.  If a person changes their mind, they can simply undo the spot on the profile, whereas having it in a thread somewhere can be problematic.

I really don't think this is such a good idea, for me it would be far too personal.

If you want to talk to someone privately, we do have the pm option available, specifically for that.

I'm sorry, but there are too many privacy (and possible legal) issues. If you want someone to have your phone number you can PM them with it. WARNING: PMs are not really all that private considering they are stored in the forum database.
