Has PM performance improved?

Yes 3 37.50%
 
No 1 12.50%
 
I don't use stupid PMs! 4 50.00%
 
Total:8

I'm planning to begin work on revamping the Private Messaging pages, a bit. They're effective, but fairly clunky in my opinion. In advance of doing this work, though, I was looking to lock down exactly where the bottlenecks might be that were dragging the whole process down so badly, and I think I've found (and corrected) those problems.

I'd like to get some feedback from the community regarding the following:

  1 - Has the performance improved within the past 24hrs? Are you noticing that sending PMs are much faster now? Slower? No change??

  2 - What features would you like to see added?

  3 - What (in your opinion) is either broken or could be done better?

 

Again - the main purpose of this thread is to confirm whether the performance issues have been addressed. It's important that I get that problem under control and out of the way, before I begin new development. So please, if you only ever use PMs sporadically at best - take a moment and let me know how it's working today.

 

Thank you...

I was just saying how much faster accessing the PM page was (as well as the specific game pages). 



                                                                                                             

It feels smoother.



 

Now bots can send me abusive messages faster.
Thanks, Talon.

The bots seem to be sending the same thing "y".
Just hash the message and block or auto-report anyone that sends that.
There really isn't a legitimate reason to be sending a single lower case letter: ever, really.

So, some things I'd like to see added:

- Support for other languages/writing systems (as of now writing in Chinese/Japanese/etc. just results in random numbers)

- Have Facebook-like PMs where you can send/message multiple people/have the group PMs on the bottom of the page that you can click between while on other pages

- The ability to add/remove people from a PM chain (maybe the person who started the PM chain?) along with the ability to remove yourself from a PM chain

- I may have some other ideas afterwards too.

+1

The bold especially.

Seems faster.

Making it easier to send PMs to several people is an excellent idea.

I think that improving the PMing/social media aspect of the site will really help drive more activity here.



I've seen requests for sending to multiple people - but that functionality already exists, no??

What I mean, is that the way it currently is, when you start a group PM with multiple people, after that you cannot add/remove people, and they cannot remove themselves. So, if someone doesn't want to keep getting message notifications they can't really do anything, and if you want someone to be able to see the PM history you can't really just add the person into it, I guess you'd have to start a new group PM and inform them of what was discussed up to that point.
