Could we make the private messages more like a chat (or like text messaging style) where you can see both sides of the message?
It makes it more organized and if you want you can later read it without having to look for each bits and pieces of the conversation.
put it into the suggestion box? http://openstudy.com/study#/updates/5377b7d5e4b0ba022d36af38
Ive wanted this to happen for a while -- including having all the information stored in chronological order so you dont have to scroll through ENDLESS messages to find an old message from the past.
Yah Ashley, message search would be a nice one to add to that idea.
Yes, I think we all want it in chronological order and searching for specific message (Oh boy would that help me and many others). You can see your own messages by clicking on sent, but I do like your idea such as texting. Also I think there should be a group message sort of thing, where you can choose specific people, and have a chat with them. That would be really cool, I know it would work for the "OSSF" people as well (+1 for free plug in?). This way you can have chats with all your friends at once, which would also let the public chats be used for their function for the certain group. It would also remove a lot of spam from public chats as well I think.
I like the current messaging system. Maybe just slip in a search option.
And, instead of jumbling everything together, have specific messages from a specific user in their own content box.
I have submitted the idea but who knows when they will read it.
ermergerd this is an awesome idea
lol no one reads my ideas
i think another idea linked to this would be to be able to connect our skype account to out open study account
and instead of just a single chat maybe we could have a group chat
glitches, glitches, and glitches...
yea lol i was in the chat during 9:19 and it said someone said something at 9:20 then i typed and its= said 9:19
and sweet profile pic
dude i think you should redo this so there isnt all this chat and combine the ideas and make a partition
you would get my vote and lots of others if they saw it maybe
@TheSmartOne Also, there is no such thing as a pribate message system on OS. They are Direct Messages, or DMs. Not private.
It's true, @e.mccormick , Pribate Messages don't exist.
/bonk Compassionate Don't pick on the dyslexic mod.
Yay an idea with people who aren't talking down about it _._
