Send a message to followers idea

maybe a send message to followers button? So that all your followers would recieve the message? Because if you want your followers to see a project, but you have 400 followers you could send a message to them. it would appear in their message box. But there has to be a rule, you have to wait 4 hours till you can send another message.

Do you think it's a good idea?

I support, but make it so that your followers can unsubscribe to the mass-messages.

No support, 1. Could be used for spam, 2. Depending on the way the system is implemented, could be used for PMing.

1 there could be a rule where if it hasnt been more then 8 hours then it wont send. 2 maybye if someone has less then 5 followers, then it will post in their comments instead of messages

Support! I was thinking instead of appearing in messages, it could be with the activity on the front page. That might help with spam as well

Support! Maybe the messages could be filtered into a different section of the messages page, to prevent spam?

Support, but I think instead of making it appear in messages (which like DaSpudLord pointed out, it could be used for PMing), it should just have an automatic comment on all of the user's profiles.

No support. I follow almost 1,400 people and I would receive quite a few extra messages if this feature was implemented.

Also, this just seems unnescesarry.

What would you need to send a message to your followers about? Moving accounts? You shared a new project that you want them to see? Well, you can make a studio and invite them. But I don't recommend that either - personally, I (and many others) find it rather annoying when I receive studio invites for no reason. I think that many people would be annoyed by the constant spam if this feature was implemented.

I would be incredibly frustrated if my mail/profile comments were constantly being filled up with random advertisements from people I follow. This would also encourage spam, chain mail, and advertisements.

I'm no longer active on this account
@Nero-Guineadoq is where you can find me and my recent projects

Maybe if the option could be toggled on or off…?

^I support that, it could be quite useful for a famous person to notify their followers about, say, some sort of celebration project.

I think to prevent spam there could be a limit of 1 follower message per day.

i think if they're really that dedicated to getting people to see their project then they should be willing to just tell people via comments. also, every single one of their followers isn't going to have any reason to receive a message like that. some of them might be inactive. some of them might have completely forgotten they followed the person. if the person is social enough to know which of their followers 1. really want to look at their project and 2. aren't going to notice it's there from it popping up in their feed alone, then i think the person can contact those people themself.

I support this on five conditions:

  • Limit is one message/day
  • (Suggested by Sheep_maker) The message would be publicly displayed on the sender's profile (eliminates the ability to PM people)
  • Message sent to just the message box, not turned into a comment (because I'd like to think that I fixed the PMing problem in the previous condition)
  • Could be toggled
  • If implemented, people who are already following others have the option already set to “off” and the user could go through the people that they follow to turn on notifications for the people that they want. The default should be set to “off” but have the toggle button next to the “follow” button, sort of like turning on notifications for people you subscribe to on YouTube.

Perhaps your messages are visible to everyone on your profile, but only your followers receive a notification?

- Sheep_maker This is a kumquat-free signature. :P
Please don't feel the obligation to post on every single topic you see; eventually you will resort to spam.

That's a really good idea, as this would eliminate the PM issue.
