Just installed!

Introduction:
vB Pager is a text-based instant messaging system over your community between members. Users can exchange short & quick messages amongst each other. Unlike the regular private messaging system, the paged user is guaranteed to read your message & reply to it (if you choose this option) instantly & easily.
Features:
Uses AJAX Technology to Send pager messages / Get pager messages / Add & Remove a member to buddy list / Add & Remove a member from Ignore list. (No Refresh Required)
Main Features:
vB Pager Buddy List ‘pop-up’ window is used to keep track of the friends you wish to interact with. By going to your "vB Pager Buddies", you'll be able to see which of your friends are currently online and offline, and be able to send them a pager message. Adding people to your buddy list also allow you to send pager messages to multiple forum members at the same time. You may add any member of the forums to your buddy list by clicking the icon next to their names in the vB Pager Online Members Page or Clicking the Manage Buddies Link to add/remove members into your list.
vB Pager Ignore List ‘pop-up’ window lists are used for those people who's messages you wish not recieve from.
Received Pager Messages are Draggable Inline Popups.
Sending a message opens up a small window where you can type in message to be sent.
Optional Anonymity: you can choose to hide your username when paging another user on the forum, & define which Usergroup can utilize this option.
The window comes in with a built-in character counter to enable the user to keep track of the characters typed.
Logs of all incoming and outgoing pager messages ‘Inbox/Sent Items’ member has, can be viewed and deleted.
Download Stored Messages as XML, CSV, TXT.
Members can turn the vB Pager Off anytime they wish not to receive pager messages, and they can select the option to receive pager messages from those who are in their Pager Buddy List only.

Yep this is pretty cool. SA and I tested it out tonight and it seems to work pretty well. The popup box lets you know instantly when you get a page so you can chat back and forth with them. It grabs your attention nicely without being too tacky or overdone. It's quicker than PM's when you want to grab someone's attention who's online.

Just another great addition to SA ! :tt02:

I'm really liking the Pager, I was curious though if there was any way to add an option to delete the msg once it pops up. There is currently an "Allow Reply" checkbox so I'm thinking there mught be a delete checkbox as well???

Yes, I'm one of those guys that needs to go through every peice of e-mail and make sure they are deleted or filed away... This could be one of the reasons my wifes says I'm OCD :dunno:

Not sure if that option is available but we'll check it. You can always just click on close in the window to close it out :lol:

Im the same way with emails, I can't stand a junky and clogged up inbox.

There is no option to do that. Not from what I could see anyways.

That is why I filter my e mail to the highest security and allow the addresses that I want e mails from. I would like to get you guys' e mail addresses, so sent them to my private message box and I will add you to my address book. I would appreciate it.

One thing for sure... Deion Branch it no Troy Brown for NE: WR, CB, and now 3rd string QB! Brown has the right to say he [d]does[.b] do everything for NE!

Surprising that I always thought Troy Brown was the *** in the group and the one that would leave before the rest of them but turns out he's got the last laugh.
