I am an unashamed indiscriminate Gmail user: I use it for everything, including all emails to do with work and college where I set up auto-forwarding as much as possible. I even have separate gmail addresses for each character (though at the moment, they're set to autoforward to a non-gmail email address, through which I screen all my non-important type emails). I do this because I rely on two things for my email experience:
1. having the search function readily on hand and available so I can find all informatino that's ever passed through my email address that I've forgotten or lost or neglected to write down.
2. The labels, with add a layer of organisation so I can find all emails pertaining to a particular part of my life instantly and quickly and view them with snippets in the Gmail inbox. I use it in conjunction with Better Gmail
, because that nests comments. By game with my RP accounts, but for example, my personal Gmail account uses 57 labels, which are all nested under 7 top-level categories. I like
this, I might go so far as to say I need
Because now Gmail have messed everything up by disabling the nested comment option (or making it incompatible with the Better Gmail script) and at the same time moved the labels over to the left side to make my layout unweildy and ugly. And suddenly I have two apparently random labels showing, and one click brings a long unnested list of all 57 labels, which is almost impossible to read. I can't pick one thing out of a long list, and having a few large categories is useless to me.
Suddenly the feature I relied on most of all has been rendered useless, and of course there's no option to switch back to the useable option. I can't even go elsewhere, because I'd lose the email I already have archived. So it's lose either way for me, really, and that's one of the reasons I'm in a foul mood.
Anyway, I'm going to bed. I just wanted to poke RPers/people interested in my writing to go over here
and memify me.
