Default Different Notification for Profile Messages?

Hi everyone!

I've had this idea for a while now, and I'm not really sure if someone has posted it before. This time (lol) my idea is to have an OPTIONAL and different notification for profile messages. Often I miss the new profile messages I get and I feel bad because people might think I'm ignoring them. This could be optional because I know some people are good at checking their profile messages when they get a new one.

I was thinking of something sort of similar to the notification you get when you get a new PM (it's flashing so it's not easy to miss.) However, to distinguish the PM's and profile messages (VM's), maybe the notification for VM's could be a different color?

Suggestions for the VM Notification:
~Dark Green
~Orange
~Red
~Purple

Also, Gemini had a great idea for the notification: when you first get it, the notification doesn't flash like it does with PM's. But after a few page refreshes, it will flash to get your attention.


Just a suggestion for a new feature

Feel free to post comments/opinions/criticism as always!

I like the idea and it would be helpful, but I know that some people do not like that flashing light when they get on PMs already, but as I said, good idea.

Thanks, Jake!

I think that if people don't like the notification for PM's, they can probably just use the pop-up window notification instead. I can understand that because it CAN get annoying if you don't check it immediately. I know some of my friends are pretty good at checking their VM's, but I'm not

I'm certainly not very good... to be honest I have 14 missing profile messages I haven't found since September!

That must have been a lot of work! Once someone asked if I was mad at them because I wasn't replying to their messages. LOL I think you can guess what happened

That sounds like a good idea! I know sometimes I don't check my VM's right away, and it would help out a lot. Maybe it could be red or something.

Thanks, WhiteT! I don't either because sometimes I can be posting on a thread and see it, but just not check it right away. Then I forget about it I was thinking maybe a purple or something like that? Red sort of means "danger" or "trouble" at me.

I like this idea a lot! This way, there's almost no way of forgetting to view the VMs too. I know how I feel when people forget, I feel like they're ignoring me, or don't like me. I'd say maybe VMs in navy, and maybe PMs in a dark green? Kinda like the Gift Gurus and gifted thing, VMs are important too, but not as much as PMs usually are, and Green is more striking and noticeable. This is a really great idea, and I'm glad you thought of it. Have an evening to remember.

Thanks, twilight!

That's exactly how I feel when one of my profile messages get ignored. I know that sometimes people are busy and just forget to reply, but I don't want to be like that. Green is a good color too- I was thinking about that color too, but a light green. The dark green would be better though.

Thanks again!

Default Re: Different Notification for Profile Messages?

Thats a good idea! I also like how when you get a new PM, the bar says who it's from and the title. But maybe a different color? Like orange or red maybe? Also, if people don't like checking their VM's, it could be optional! But, I love getting new PM's and VM's! I feel so special! xD
To sum it up,
great idea!
