I thought it is a good idea to toot my own horn. So lets talk Private messages. This should be massively better than what we had before. New features:
- Search usernames as you type - matching usernames will show in the "to:" box.
- Send to multiple members.
- Unlimited messages - You may even have access to some messages thought lost long ago!
- Threading. This should make it easier to follow the conversation.
- Block messages - You an now block users from sending you messages! Ideal when trying to ignore the existence of another member.
contacts list - a list of members you have previously sent messages to. Recycle bin - A safety step before deletion.
- Notifications. When you get a new message, you should see a notification of the message on the top right hand corner of the screen (if you have js enabled, which everyone does). Pretty nifty IMO.
