SwissCheese was nice enough to create and share this nice MOD with us.  Anyone who uses PM will probably appreciate his efforts.  I know I will.  His write-up is so good, I'm not even going to bother changing what he said.  This is what SwissCheese posted on his board:  RafikiTalk..

Frequent PM Contacts and Staff Selection

INTRODUCTION

Hello friends,

I have written this MOD especially for rb2d2xp  

No more jumping through hoops when selecting a
user whom you write Private Messages to often...

I hope this MODification makes it even
easier for you to use RafikiTalk...

~enjoy!

INFORMATION FOR THE AVERAGE USER

So what's new?

This MOD (MODification) to RafikiTalk makes it much easier for you to choose a username when you write a PM (Private Message) to someone...

Usually, when writing PMs, we communicate with the same people over and over again.  That is where this MOD comes into action... The MOD "remembers" whom you have written PMs to and also takes note of how many times you have contacted each user...

So, from now on, when you open the Private Message Panel to write a PM to someone, the MOD will know who you are and then display a convenient drop-down selection with all the names of everyone whom you have contacted before...

Since the MOD "remembers" how many times you contacted each user, it will automatically arrange the names in the drop-down list. The names of the users whom you have written to most often will be displayed at the top and the less often contacted names will appear more towards the bottom of the drop-down...

Additionally, a "Staff Selection" is also shown. This drop-down contains a list of all the staff members at RafikiTalk, so that you can quickly select one of their names too if you need to.

To select the username of someone on the list, you simply click on the desired name and the MOD will then automatically insert that username in the username field. Quick & Easy!

Please Note: that the "Most Used" selection will not be displayed to you if you have not written any PM's to someone... As soon as you've written a PM, though, the MOD will add the name to the list and display it the next time you access the Private Message Panel...

That is neat, Nightrider!  I just tried it and it works great!  Thanks for sharing SwissCheese. sunny  

NOW, what we need is a MOD that will allow you to send the same message to several people at the same time!

You're very welcome rb2d2xp and Nightrider.
My pleasure to help you...

About your idea, rb2d2xp...

That would be like a CC: or BCC: as we know it in emailing.

It already exists as a MOD and is part of the Advanced Profile
Panel (or whatever it's called - I'm sure Nightrider knows) and
it is also standard in the "Olympus" version of phpBB (Version
three of this Forum Software - nobody knows when it will be
released though...)

But I agree with you, rb... That would be nice!

Yes, I did install the PCP MOD in RCF once but no one liked it.  Unfortunately once we are forced into Olympus, no one will get a choice unless someone comes along with a MOD that reverts the profile back to the way it was.  Personally I think they are making a huge mistake by switching to the PCP format because it unduely complicates a very simple process.  This is yet another example of where the KISS principle is better than the alternative...

I couldn't agree with you more, Nightrider... I didn't like the PCP either
and never even bothered to install it... I admit that it has very many good
functions, but they are not suitable for the average user... Way too complicated...

For ADMINS perhaps it would be OK, but even so I prefer to use the same
panel as my users do to have the 1 on 1 feeling for their problems and
questions if there are any...

We'll stick to phpBB2 won't we? We'll found the "phpBB2VintageClub" LOL
