Yeah I just think that PM's are probably more "important" than VM's, although not always in content. That happens to mostly everyone, and I know those who do that on accident to others feel really bad (I do!)

Thanks, Indy! I agree, it IS hard to remember especially if you have other things on your mind.

I like the idea.

As for the flashing... I don't really like the flashing. If i am in the middle of posting something long, the flashing gets on my nerves. I think it should flash if it's from a mod or admin, and just change color ( PM blue and VM dark green is my idea ). And maybe flash after you refresh the page a few times.

Will do! I don't like it when I miss VM's also.

Thanks, Gemini!

Yes, I don't really either, so I think I'll probably add that to the first post: no flashing for new profile messages. And your idea for flashing after a few page refreshes is great! I'll definitely add that to the first post!

That's a good idea! It would be neat for a different color, sometimes I miss my profile messages just because it's white!

Default Re: Different Notification for Profile Messages?

great idea! whenever i get pm's i try to read them immediatly, because that flashing light drives crazy. but when i get vm's i usually just ignore tham till i finish posting. i try to respond to them all but sometimes when i get tons, i skip over them pretty easily.
hmm . . .maybe it could be purple

That's what I do! I think that if someone sent me a PM, it's probably more urgent, and plus the flashing light drives me crazy. And I always skip past some when I get a ton. Purple would be nice!

Just updated a bit on first post

NNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! please no!! i despise that blinking light and REALLY TRULY dont want two of them. its very distracting and i often just click open the PM to make it STOP, but dont read it until later. then there are times that i forget to go back bc i no longer have the notification.

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
no, they cannot. and a pop-up window would be even MORE distracting. i really wish there was an option to DELETE the blinking light. when its a VM, its just bolded so thats great. it doesnt distract. if anything, i'd rather the blinking light goes away FOREVER.
