I've had a bunch of PMs lately, especially for master splitter installs (sorry those who have PM'd me, I will get back to you).
Those who run their own business will understand how much time you end up corresponding with customers etc, and how easy it is to lose track of who's who and what conversation you had with who.

Anyway, whilst trolling through my PMs to see who I have replied to, and who I need to update etc, I thought this would work so much better with a conversation type view; i.e. where I can click on a message and see all the replies (both sides) with that person.



So there you have it, a feature request to make PMs easier to read.

Cheers
Fraser




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

I will have a look. It may not be a complete email system. And then again it could. It takes time to do these but I as thinking before about a filter option to show only PMs to/from a specific user - adding conversation would be easy but only for new PMs since there isn't a link between messages in the old system.

Thanks for looking into this; look forward to seeing what you can do. Even if it applies for new PM's, that will be great moving forward.
Cheers

Just for an idea, we have right now 231,785 messages between users in our database...

Yes, people here send a lot of PMs.

Good joke. Sarcasm aside, you do realise we don't serve ads in any of the SSL pages, right? This includes the Messages and Profile pages.

Yes, messages are very fast. Personally I have no objection to advertising appearing in that area.

All PMs are now recording conversations. 

I will change the pages to show previous messages later today.

Cheers for this change. Working well.

I have another request now too if possible. A message signature would be great! Save me always cutting and paste this when I need it. Would like the option on including / not including on a per message basis.

If this is too tricky, that's ok.
Cheers
