Hi, ladies and gents
Would be nice to have the option to set a timer (initiator can set it ) for messages to self-destruct. Why? Because in real life no one is recording the conversation you have with someone, so why should be the case in the virtual world.
I don't know what is planed for IPS 4.2 (more social inclined as I've heard), but another thing that would be sweet is:
These features would make this platform suitable as niche social, dating sites too.
I like the broader concept of social circles and enhanced permissions regarding personal data like personal messages, profile viewing, friends and not just followers, etc.
I would like to see this feature with PM, f.e.
With this, we could send regular "bulk PMs" to members (which would be less annoying than email newsletters and also have some legal benefits in some countries). And it wouldn't let the database grow bigger and bigger. If you have thousands of users and want to send PMs to all, we don't want to waste server space
You might respond: use announcements!
No. We want the notification trigger, and members will have a look at the PM / information seriously.
With SETTING to turn it OFF, if it ever comes to be considered by IPS.
When I 1st read this I thought it was a bad idea but the more I think about it, the more I like the idea.
I have messages from custom jobs since 2011. I don't want to delete it. That's why, if EVER considered by IPS (auto delete content isn't a good idea), should have a setting to turn it ON/OFF.
Follow-Up to the idea could also be a
It's an announcement, which could be sent to selected groups or members or all members or...
actually is only one (1) single announcement (in terms of storage), that appears in the PM inbox of selected members (as link)
sends notification about a new PM.
This way, it's like a no-reply-PM for advertisement or important information. Maybe one, that is not stored in each individual mailbox (waste of space), but a single one for all that is just linked...
If you have a look into big email provider portals, you'll get these "ads-emails" inside your Postbox/mailbox, if you are logged in online, but not via client. These emails are not downloadable. I mean something similar.
