Suggestion for a new Forum Feature
 
1 Attachment(s)
Over at deadlystream we have a nifty little feature I think would be good to have over here at LF.

Basically, when you get a PM, Visitor Message, or whatever, you get this little module at the top of the forums, that tells you the subject, sender and gives you a link to the message.

It doesn't take up much space, and IMO, it's quite a handy thing to have there.

Here's a screenshot:

I post a stamp of approval on this idea!

Christina Aguilera? Wow.

Anyway, I think it looks cool.

^Sharen is a bit of a fan. :p

I like this idea, too.

Mav 02-22-2009 02:21 PM

I like it too, but I also like the orange slash through Google Ads, can we get that thing too?

I think we'd google ads in the first place for that to happen. :D

I think it's a nice feature!

What is the point of it when we already have the notifications area, and for new PMs you can set a popup window to alert you? Seems redundant to me.

It replaces the annoying popup window.

Eh small enough feature. Easy to go unnoticed. Though it would be immensely useful to people who receive a lot of PMS

@Moel: You don't have pop-ups for visitor messages, pop-ups are annoying and this method is pretty fast without involving a Mount Everest of coding.

Jeff 02-23-2009 12:51 AM

But even without the popup for VMs you still have a notification area already, this just seems like adding a feature that is already present. It's not a big deal either way if a lot of others want it, I just don't see the point to it. :)

Sabretooth 02-23-2009 01:36 AM

As I've said, this one's faster and does what it's supposed to do more efficiently, however infinitesimal that may seem. :p

It's a handy little feature, not huge, as has been mentioned, but useful nonetheless.

stoffe 02-25-2009 12:50 PM

How long would those verbose notifications stay on display? Until they've been read, or only be shown once? Also, should it only display the most recently received+unread regardless of type, or the most recently received+unread of each type?

(The popup notices are likely intended to be annoying so you can't miss them. Not much point of a notification that is easily overlooked. :))

Stream 02-26-2009 03:54 PM

It only shows once like the popup and only displays the last PM recieved so people who have a lot of PM's won't have half a screen of notices.

A wee bit of coding should allow for it to stay there until said PM is read, I was going to look into it but haven't had a chance yet.
