Message system, mark-as-read for all characters.
« on: November 08, 2016, 09:38:51 AM »
I think the message system needs 1-2 fixes. The main one is to "mark as read" group messages for all characters, the same way events work. It gets time consuming and requires more page requests, when each character in a realm needs to sort through the same broadcast messages.

This is something that has been being requested since... before I started playing, I think.

Yep.

The TODO list pinned here is approved items that just need adding. The Concept list in the Creating forum is things that are approved in theory but need fleshing out.

The present plan is to throw an option on the end of a conversation to mark it as read for all your characters, as well as have an option on the messages and summary pages to mark all unread conversations as read.

I thought about a mark all read for all, but there's too much of a chance that you'd actually miss a message, or even an entire conversation, that way.
