Why is this gone??? not all wall posts are for public viewing, I regularly get ones that I don't want seen.

I'd like to second this. It's not an absolutely necessary function, but I don't need every little "Hello" on my wall - I know several users who use that as a way to start a PM.

Further, if I can't deny it, then anytime some user wants to be ornery and post "You're a jerk," that's on my wall whether I want it there or not as well. Not that this has happened to me yet, but for the theoretical time that it does, I'd like to be able to deny it from being posted.

@cbishop: I totally forgot about irate users lol, sex spam bots also post on the top users walls from time to time.

@pikahyper: Well, I don't know if I'm a top user, but I'd still like to be able to deny posts.

@cbishop: well take some comfort in the fact that we can delete wall posts and anything in our activity feed. Now that all the activity is broken up into three tabs I worry I'll forget to check them all regularly though.

@pikahyper: We can? I don't see that option. Moreover, I just checked those on my page, and everything that had been there since the redesign launched was gone. I've got a handful of forum replies on my activity, that are from this login.

@cbishop: hover over the entry and a little X in the top right corner should appear. Old activity will be gone, not sure what happened to old wall posts though, hopefully they just haven't been imported yet.

I like it, now Gambler can't deny my messages and everyone gets to see the destruction I put on him. lol

@xanni15: just means he has to delete them as soon as he gets the notification about you posting on his wall, no guarantee anyone will see your shenanigans :P

Yeah, this seems scary. I've had some pretty saucy wall posts from users who want me to do things for them but if I can't chose to hide them, people might think I moderate poorly when really I just can't control what gets posted on my wall (and just because I enjoy it doesn't mean I want everyone to else to see it!).

Just as an example though, seriously, over 80% of the wall posts I've gotten over the years have just been triggers for PM conversations and never get approved.

yep, it is just faster to post on a wall to start a conversation, don't have to deal with clicking things or adding subject lines.

Yeah, I'm not a fan of this. There are abusive wall posts that people get that they don't exactly want broadcast as well as a myriad of others.

Also, is there no more 'see wall to wall' feature? Because that was awesome and while wall posts are fun for striking up conversation, it was cool to see those conversations over the years that they were had.

Thanks on the "X." The missing activity I was referring to was since the new site launched - the last couple days worth is gone.

@cbishop: I think the on and off activity was cause of performance issues.

Good point, still mourning the old ones :)

I agree, i do miss the way it used to work.

Not sure if anyone else has been having this problem but, sometimes when I write on someone's wall my message gets cut out even when it's far from the 200 character limit. 0.o I've been mostly sticking to messaging rather than writing on someone's wall since this has been causing confusion.

@pikahyper: How come everyone can view what I post to another user? It wasn't like that on the old site...

#23 Posted by pikahyper (12721 posts) - - Show Bio

@xxxddd: yes it was if they approved the post, any approved post was publicly viewable.

This I can see developing into a mess.
