How does one create a ping list?
8-16-2010

Posted on 08/16/2010 5:28:58 AM PDT by goodwithagun

Sorry about the vanity! I would like to create a healthy and natural living ping list. How does one do this? Is there a way to save the list of people who want on it and then just transfer the names to the post? Thanks!

Save the list of Freepers names you want to ping somewhere(Word document, notepad etc...)on your hardrive. Then copy the list to the “TO” window when posting a thread or reply.

Just put Moose or Cheese in your post and it will pick up all the pings you need.

Save them in your FR Account-Profile section to copy and paste when you need them.

Definitely keep a list on your hard drive. Put a copy of the ping you wish to send in the same place, that way you can just cut and paste even a complex ping.

Decide on a unique keyword and add it to all threads you ping to. That way you archive all of your pings.

Post the ping on articles of interest and anyone interested will contact you.

I handle my ping list in Notepad. The list of people are kept in one section, names separated by semi-colons. The actual list I develop daily (what shows in the above link), including graphics, are kept separately below that area. I then copy/paste each section into the appropriate area in the response panel.

To do this you need some familiarity with HTML code. The use of...

< p > For paragraph

< br > For line break

< a href="[Link]" >[Descriptive Name]< /a >

...are all used in setting up the daily ping. NOTE: The spaces you see before/after any "<" or ">" should not be there. For instance, in < p > there should be no spaces. I've added them so the code would show up in this paragraph.

Be sure to save your Notepad document with a descriptive name. Then it can be used any time you want. Also, I save the list of people I ping in a separate Excel file as well, each name being given it's own row. This way I have backup of my ping list, and I can use the numbered rows to easily determine how many I have on my list.

I periodically FReepmail myself my updated ping list. That way I have a recent list NOT on my computer.

Same way I do the Seinfeld list.

You tell people “You must name names! We need a name! Give us a name!”

Then, you put them on your “List.”

And, voila!

Or....

Decide why you want the ping list, yada, yada, yada and you’re in business.

That is the best way to start a ping list. Get someone else to start it.

Add an “n” to your “pig” list between the “i” and the “g”.

< a href="[Link]" >[Descriptive Name]< /a >

You can substitute < img src="[picture URL]" > for [Descriptive Name] to get a clickable pic. I do that with my Navair list logo and the address for a keyword search on "navair" as the [Link].

Can I be on the ‘healthy and natural living ping list’ and the smokers ping list at the same time? Or will it crash the system?

Right. But what I’m using the code for is links to threads so the “a href...” works well for that. For the one photo, I do use “img src=”...

What I'm talking about is using a picture instead of a descripitive word or phrase as a clickable link. Click here, then click the Navair logo.

Takes too much time for me. I use the URL to the thread in question, then the title of the thread as the descriptive part. Two quick cut & pastes and it’s done.

If you look at the link in my post, you’ll see how many threads I linked to this morning. Inserting pictures would be an impossible task due to time constraints. I use the KISS principal...

I keep the “Hockey Ping List” on my profile page.

Easy to update, easy to access.

How does one create a ping list?

You use three cups of bleached flour, 1/2 cup of buttermilk, throw an egg in there, add a cup of cornmeal and some dried jalapenos (amount dependent on your own taste.) Hum a little paprika and cayenne in there and then bake all of that at 350 for 35 minutes.

At least I think that's how it's done.

I have the code on the same notepad I keep my list on. I can copy and paste the code as fast as I could type the word “ping.”

No matter how much I hum at paprika and cayenne, they just sit there. Is there some special tune I should be humming?

Well, there is, but I'd be in huge trouble if I revealed it. I'm talking McChrystal-type trouble.

There are ways of gleaning that information. You just have to pay close attention to the clues...

We have a small ping list which I keep on my about page.This is to ping people to news about Anna Nicole’s and her Son’s death.Having it on my about page gives everyone access to it when there is news that is note worthy.Hope this helps:)
