I'd like to have a better private messaging system.
Set up like a single page with all PM functionalities. For this page to have it's own tab, or a link in your own detective bio. It's like a small email client for priviate messages in here.
On the page you see:
Inbox, outbox, archive, trash, compose message.
Contains all your messages, and you can see which ones are read and which ones are not.
Contains the messages you sent yourself.
containts the messages you wanted to save (like we already have.)
Keeps trashed messages for a designated amount of time, after which they will get purged.
You can either type in the detective name, or do a quick search based on part of the detective name. You can keep your own address book. Or everybody you have sent a message in the last weeks is listed in a drop down. And there is a drop down for you to choose from that contains all the detectives currently online.
Each PM has a link to a persons detective profile to it.
PMs still pop up when you are online, and you can do a quick reply in a little window. (And the message will also show up in your in + outbox etc)
If you are not online, you just get a pop up that says you have private messages, so you know you need to go to your detective page.
It may be a good idea to have this advanced PM system available to subsribers. And unsubbed to keep the current PM system.
A few bugs in the current system should be ironed out.
1. The spyce exceptions.
2. Sometimes when I have a lot of PMs, I see the first message flash before my eyes to already see the second one in front of me and the first one getting lost.
Wow I thought it was just me who forgot to answer my correspondence. OK ben it's been 7 months, got a good way to describe that idea yet :D [that excludes the idea, 'bite me Squirrel', by the way]
