Shall we try 'grouped conversations'?

Hey everyone,

We're thinking of adding two new features to the discussion boards and we'd like to know what you all think. One of them is called 'grouped conversations'.

Right now, you can start as many different conversations as you like with the same person. They get displayed as separate PM chains in your inbox. Something we can do instead is group all PM chains by the person you're talking to. In the same way that Facebook and WhatsApp work, you would have one ongoing converastion per person.

Given this is a significant change  to how things currently work, we don't want to try it out without asking you guys first. Vote on the poll and let us know what you think. :)

Any questions, ask us below. We're also thinking of trying 'infinite scrolling' - to find out more about that, head here.

Cheers,
Mike

    This wouldn't apply to me so don't want to put my opinion really but if it's just trying I guess there's no problem as if it's not liked then it can just be taken away :)

    I think it's a good idea. I've had it several times where one conversation ends up broken across different chats, so it's difficult to track what you're talking about!x

    I prefer my conversations seperate, otherwise they will all concertina together like messages on some email accounts, and then it's an absolute bugger trying to locate them. :/

    Hey

    Really sorry - dont think think my opinion matters at this point because i think no

    you got rid of the feature where you had a title for each convo- so feel like you may aswell add this instead, but kinda liked the title thing as knew what each different convos about

    Though i have put No because the conversations aint like Facebook or Whatsapp -(content). I hardly use the message unless its with The Mix. But sometimes it can be for support stuff and i dont partically feel comfortable with the idea of someone speaking about something then -after awhile getting another message and see what was speaking about before and may bring up something again in their mind. Like actually even if its just a message with @The Mix . Like what if was speaking about something that happened in group chats or something - like id just prefer not for it to pop up again. 

    Dont think that even makes sense

    I haven't really had an issue with it, but I think it is a good idea to have all conversations with each person in the same place.

    Totally hear what you're saying here @Shaunie and this is a very valid point to make. This is certainly a concern for us and we'll be taking this into account, because we're cautious of inadvertently bringing up old discussions as well.

    Our feeling is that, regardless, we could really do with a way of making inboxes easier to manage. Currently, conversations do pile up, and with no subject line it can feel a bit messy. This would be one solution to that, but we're also looking into a feature that lets us search our messages.

    We're still working out the technicalities for both, but it's awesome to know we're largely in favour of giving this a go. More info to come when we have it. :) 

    Cheers guys,
    Mike & the team
