Private messaging feature

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.

  • 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. 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.

    Can we have the option to delete messages?

    Oh yeah this is good.

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