In the notify emails I'd like GZ not GeekZone.

On my phone, on Gmail, the subject prefix is so long I only get 4 char of the message in the subject list.

-1 Should remain as Geekzone.

Else rename Geekzone.co.nz to gz.co.nz (which doesn't have the same ring to it, don't you think?)

Whilst we are on the subject. Please change your logo colour to purPle so it matches my PC desktop better. Thanks.

Best of both worlds - make it an option in your profile that defaults to geekzone.

Something like "Click here, enter your Trade Me and Facebook passwords and you will see the actual IP addresses for users posting on Geekzone. True, it worked me! You can trust me, your unknown friend..."

(Not a real feature).

I'm actually with Don on this one.
Making it an option would be great.

Alternatively, does anyone know how this could be achieved within Gmail itself? Maybe by using custom filters or something?

dontpanic42:  Alternatively, does anyone know how this could be achieved within Gmail itself? Maybe by using custom filters or something?


ya I was wondering that as well.  My mail goes via my own mail server to gmail, so it occured I could filter it there as well, but I was kinda keen to know if I could just get it done at source, but given the response so far I'm picking "Hell NO" as the answer.
