Arrow {Blinking for Visitor Messages, Friend Requests, and Picture Comments ?}

This happens to me a lot. I will be chatting on a thread like normal, and then notice something at the top of the screen...it's a VM notification that I didn't see!

Click the image to open in full size.

I think that the VM notifications and the FR notifications should be more noticeable like PM's are when we receive them.

A lot of people have been suggesting different colors for VM's and FR's, but really, I would be happy with blinking blue. Just something more noticeable.

Click the image to open in full size.

I end up missing VM's and FR's a lot, but I never miss PM's because they turn blue and they blink. Maybe VM's and FR's could do the same thing.


Sorry if this is confusing, and hopefully this is possible. (:

Well, having them ALL blue and blinking would be confusing. Maybe a more noticable color???

I agree with Beetlike. It would be cool to have them flash a different color so that you would know what type of notification it is. Great idea, I'm giving you rep.

Me too, I'll get a profile message and then see it like 15 minutes later because it blends in.
It should be blinking and a different color
Like red, green, or purple...

Thanks for posting (:

I have added to the first post that FR's and VM's should be a different blinking color.

Good idea. A maybe a bright purple or green would be easier to see and in bold.

Well about if when you get a PM,VM,or FR, you had a little window come up in the middle of the screen that says: You have one new Private Message or One new Friend Request Or one new Visitor Message.And there would be an option that would say OK that you would click on and it would take you to the PM,VM,or FR. Or you could click Not now and keep doing what you are doing.

I'm not sure if they could do this, maybe just making it blink would be easier? Good idea though. (:

Great idea! I really do hate it when ever I miss a VM. I'm sure that happens to alot of people. Because everyone is always saying to me, "Oh, sorry! I didn't notice your VM" so, I think that it could really help people out alot!

I honestly wouldn't care if it was the same color as the PM one.. as long as I knew I got something, that would satisfy me! xD.

I pretty much agree with everything above. But, once again, I really think that any color would be great as long as it's noticable. I was thinking the VMs could be red and the PMs could be blue and friend requests could be yellow or something! Just a thought!

Thanks for the great suggestion, too! You deserve some rep!
