Lyn's ideas for Angeling
| ||what I would like to do is archive MY requests, or 'hold' my requests somewhere, because I need to keep a record like Cindy mentioned.|
I've been thinking of an all-purpose "notes" field on each mooch so that you could indicate that a particular mooch is an angel mooch, and who it is going to.
| ||What I'd REALLY like, and then I wouldn't have to worry about an archive, is a way to signify on the angel-mooch request that it is an angel request and who it is I have requested it when I have mooch the book. For example, I have 10 angel requests in various stages of pending as I write this - and the only way I can keep track is to put the member's BM ID in the comment section of the mooch plus making sure, beforehand,I have the correct ID for the member - as it may be different from their user name. And all this while trying ot sang the book ASAP in case it goes - as we do. :) |
Perhaps your mooch notes could have a feature where various indicative words serve as tags. For example, putting the word *ANGEL* in your notes could put an angel icon on the notes, making it stand out. Mooch notes would be editable by you at any time, not just at mooch time, so you could put any tracking information for the state of that mooch.
| ||If I could add a hyper-link to the mooch requester's BM id (any sort of link I can use once I receive the book that will take me to who requested me to angel it), maybe with a little 'angel' icon - like the smiley face - WHEN I mooch the book, and I don't know how difficult that is - but you asked for suggestions, *smiles sweetly at John* - that is what I'd like to help me with angel requests.|
Yeah, I'm thinking along the same lines.
Also, I've been meaning to break the "pending" page up into separate pages for each state of your mooches (books you've sent, books you're waiting for, etc...) as that pending page gets darned long sometimes. A section for "Angel mooches" would be useful in that case, and would keep them separate from your regular mooching.
perhaps a tick box with each mooch:yes this is an angel request
then, if ticked a dialogue box (similar to the recommend pathway) in which to write the user's BM id or e3ven a link to their BM name
this is then placed into the mooch details, with or without icon.
I like this idea. Perhaps after you click the "this is an angel mooch" and do the mooch, the next page asks you a few questions, such as "who is this angel mooch for?".
Ideally, the system could send you an angel mooch request from the original requester, and pre-fill this stuff out, so you need only click the "do this angel mooch" link in an email and bang! it goes out.
