This update adds private messaging to GTX0. Private messages are basically just private posts between you and someone else so they look and feel the same. Unlike the current system, private messages can be a lot longer and support GTX0's post parser.

The old system still exists, and in fact the new system is integrated into the old system -- long messages get truncated to ~100 characters and passed off to the old system. You can also set a custom "title" for a message, which is what the user will see in their alerts panel.



* Click "View conversation" to see that specific conversation.

* Click "View all conversations" to go here:



These are all links. They show you everyone you've ever sent private messages to and the last message they sent you, as well as the time it was sent.



Here's what an actual conversation looks like. It looks like a post, including mycards and post formatting.



Here you can reply, which sends another private message via the old system. You can also send a custom title if you want something other than the truncated message to show up in their alerts.

Miscellaneous stuff

  • I've secretly been storing ALL messages on the old system from about 2013. So everyone who's been around should have some messages already in there.

  • When you open the people tab, you can click a user and see your conversation with them / message them some more. I'd like to integrate this (and profiles) better into the rest of the site at some point.

  • settingsOptions
    There are 24 Replies

    Also,

  • Anything that says "Sent a long time ago" was from before dates were stored (2015 I think?)

    Thank you. This update (and the multiple devices update) are big steps forward and I really appreciate them. You're doing good work here and it really benefits the site.

    Good job.

    Glad I requested this. Also good job.

    Good job. Seems to work well.

    There are a few convos where the recipient is listed as 'S' for me. I'm guessing its because the user never replied to my PM?

    Reading through strategy PMs for older Adventure games is making me nostalgic.

    On that note, it would be nice to be able to delete conversations. There's definitely some old stuff from people that aren't even here anymore that I wouldn't want to have to look through every time.

    One of the more recent conversations I had also seems to be out of order. My first message (sent July 14th) is at the very bottom of the thread. Then the replies ascend from there.

    Doesn't seem to be a problem with other recent PMs, which is odd.

    Fixed.

    Me too. Someone should host an adventure game. I'd play it.

    doneDone!



    I added an "Archive" link to each message.

    Working great now, thanks!

    Posted September 8th by Count Dooku

    Can we have the option to delete messages?

    Posted September 9th by Castrael

    Oh yeah this is good.

    This is an obvious next step. I'm glad you have it on your mind!

    @Xhin:

    I messaged two different people but the message doesn't seem to appear in the message box. Which means something is probably glitchy.

    Edited September 9th by KnokkelMillennium

    Who did you message?

    This happened with everyone I messaged after two others. But so far this has happened with Brandy, Null, and I think Jet but I'm actually not entirely sure if I actually messaged him.

    Edited September 9th by KnokkelMillennium

    Oh ya this happened with that "Mona" person too. Which is odd because it's a conversation that was already there.

    Posted September 9th by KnokkelMillennium

    Ya, even though I see a message from earlier when I messaged someone back I don't see one anymore if I try to send a new one so something is definitely wrong.

    Edited September 9th by KnokkelMillennium

    I can't even login so no I don't see your pm.

    @IKM I see.

    Also ya I can't even see my own post when replying to a person replying to me.

    Posted September 9th by KnokkelMillennium

    @IKM: I smuggled you into your account remotely.

    Is this being looked into? Also why is that list of people you can send PMs/notifications to gone? I still can't seem to send or see messages from myself.

    Nice update! Traveling Liongod approves.

    Posted September 10th by Trever Leingod

    It's funny. I was just thinking the other day that I've not seen you post in ages.

    I don't know if my messages are going through? I can't see them in the conversation once I send them.

    Posted September 10th by Vandy

    It's broken at the moment.

    Posted September 10th by Count Dooku

    I've been successfully using the old "alerts" method for now. It still adds them to the conversation history.
