Title:
"Activity"-like view of 1st page of Inbox, in a dropdown, from Navigation Strip

Area:
navigation strip, messaging

Summary:
It is currently very easy to configure your Inbox to serve as an activity notification hub. It would be very useful to have a shorted version of the first page of that Inbox be accessible via a dropdown on the Navigation Strip, and allow some manipulation of your Inbox via that dropdown.

Description:
Each line of the proposed dropdown would contain a one line description of the activity. (N replied to [your post|comment], N messaged you, subject "", N posted to group X, and so on). Each entry would contain an "x" dismissal button which would delete the notification from both the Inbox and the dropdown. Clicking on an individual entry outside of the dismissal button would take you to the item about which you are being notified - the message, the comment made, etc - and mark it as read. A "see all" entry at the bottom of the dropdown could take you to the current Inbox view. Currently, using the Inbox as a notification centre results in large numbers of page swaps and reloads, as you go from Inbox to post to Inbox to reply form to Inbox etc., etc., etc., with mark-as-read and delete-item as separate actions across separate pages. Further, it is difficult to maintain (de-clutter, etc) without engaging in that maintenance as a separate task. As a result, those of us who have this issue end up with over-full Inboxes that we tend to bulk-delete. This suggested feature would allow us both to use our Inbox more easily and maintain it more effectively, resulting in improved usability of the service and - hopefully - fewer notifications being stored on the servers.

Title:
Add time/date stamp to Inbox messages

Area:
Inbox, messages

Summary:
The Dreamwidth Inbox is set up to stamp any incoming messages, be they comments or PMs, as having arrived nth seconds/minutes/days/weeks/months/years ago. I'd like to see those stamps added to or replaced by an actual time/date stamp.

Description:
The Dreamwidth Inbox is set up to stamp any incoming messages, be they comments or PMs, as having arrived nth seconds/minutes/days/weeks/months/years ago.

(And I have to speak to semantics here; "34 seconds ago" is admittedly a pretty precise date/time/stamp, but "two weeks ago", IMO, very much isn't.)

My suggestion is since we already have an Inbox function for date/time stamps (it's just not a date/time stamp) to either change it from [posted, received] 'nth seconds/minutes/days/weeks/moths ago' to putting an actual date/time stamp on it, like the UTC date/time stamps we have in DW's comment sections, or else to simply add the date/time stamp to the [posted, received] 'nth seconds/minutes/days/weeks/moths ago' stamp we already have.

I discovered this was A Thing after returning to a neglected PM in my DW Inbox today and realizing I'd have to check my email to figure out exactly when it was sent. I can't stay on site to do that. And it made me feel bad that I'd have to hold up my reply a bit longer as I searched for the email notification so I could reply by saying: "...about the message you sent last Wednesday".

(Again, there are some semantics at work: I could get a calendar and count backward from today to determine what day/possibly month/possibly year "six days ago" was, but like checking my email for the date/time, it's another step I'd have to go offsite or into an OS or phone app to take.)

The system is not too difficult to use to learn when comments were posted (just check the entries comments were posted on) but it's also true no account holder on Dreamwidth can determine, merely by viewing their Inbox notifications, exactly when that was.

Title:
Differentiating inbox notifications from suspended users

Area:
inbox, suspension

Summary:
Inbox notifications should differentiate what kind/where a message from a suspended user originated.

Description:
Currently inbox notifications involving suspended users all have a very uninformative "(Reply from suspended user)" giving the username of the suspended user.

It would be good to at least differentiate between different types of notification (comment, private message -- poll vote? birthday notification?). It would be extra-fancy if there was more information, like, was it a comment in your own journal, a reply in another journal or community (when that goes through the inbox), a comment on something you're tracking, or other information to better contextualize what's going on.

Turns out it's startling when someone with an entirely locked journal doesn't realize they have private messages turned on, they get a message from a spammer who is subsequently suspended, and they have a sudden moment of alarm wondering if there was some kind of security incident. Situations like this could be better avoided with more context for inbox messages.

I want the date format "Sat 2012-12-01" (or custom date formats)

Area:
Internationalisation/time and date

Summary:
I always use ISO format dates, so definitely want my journal displayed using those. However, in the context of a blog it's also useful to know on what day of the week a posting or comment was made, so it would be nice to have day-of-week followed by ISO date.

Description:
As per the title, and for the reasons in the summary, I would specifically like the date format "Sat 2012-12-01".

However, I have no idea how many other people would like that specific format. Maybe it would be good instead to provide a mechanism for users to specify custom date and time formats?

There are already existing standards for this, such as the trusty old POSIX strftime ( http://pubs.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/009695399/functions/strftime.html ), ICU format strings ( http://userguide.icu-project.org/formatparse/datetime#TOC-Date-Time-Format-Syntax ) or the Microsoft one familiar to users of Windows and/or Excel ( http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/8kb3ddd4.aspx ).

It would be good to use one of those rather than reinventing the wheel. My vote would be for ICU, provided that library is available to the DW platform.

Title:
Somewhat confusing message confirmation page title

Area:
Messaging

Summary:
The title of the page confirming that a message has been sent is "Compose Message", which when I see a tab with that, makes me think I have unfinished message business. Maybe, if the page (http://www.dreamwidth.org/inbox/compose) is confirming a sent message, the page title and header could read "Message Sent Successfully" or something similar.

Description:
This would make the site more usable for heavy tab-flipping types, and I suspect for people who get their pages in a very linear manner, e.g. screen-reader users or people using very large type — they would know immediately what has happened with their message right away.

Ideally, if the message failed to send for some reason, the title and heading could indicate that too — I've never had a message fail to send, but while you're in there, it might be nice to change that.

I suspect the solution wouldn't make anyone's life harder — it'd be another few entries in the English-stripping file and some more logic in building the page, but from the user perspective I can't think of a drawback, so long as the new titles all included the word "message" to cue people as to what process is succeeding or failing.

Title:
Make links in Private Messages clickable.

Area:
Private messaging system

Summary:
Upon sending a private message to a Dreamwidth user the other night I looked upon the link I included in said message and realized it was unclickable. I thought to myself, what if mobility or other issues kept me from cutting and pasting the link into the browser; what if I were a user who simply needs to be able to click on that link with no other action required? So I'm proposing making all links clickable in private messages.

Description:
Upon reviewing a private message I sent to a Dreamwidth user the other night and realizing the link I included in it was unclickable, I began wondering why links in private messages are unclickable and how much trouble it might be to make them clickable in the future. Currently any links you include in Private Messages are shown in plain text with no way to click through on them to the linked content. I figure this is an accessibility issue for anyone with health issues that prevents them from using the mouse or keyboard fully or who simply experiences pain and over-exertion of already strained joints and tendons upon not being able to click on any links presented to them. So I'm proposing making all links clickable in private messages.


Making links clickable in PMs benefits all users by adding ease of use, speed and simplicity to the PM system; the only downside is that a straight clickthrough could lead a user to say, a malware-infested website. Spammers who sign up for Dreamwidth accounts and then use the PM system simply to spam, and existing users who turn against each other in nefarious ways could use the straight clickthrough function to make it easier for a user to visit a website full of spam and/or malware. But the capability for that sort of abuse is there now; the only difference is it takes a user two more steps (cut, paste, then press enter on your browser's address bar) to get to the website in question. Forcing a user to look at the link by disabling it and requiring extra steps to make it work might be a good idea from a security stand point but it comes at the cost of accessibility and ease of use for all Dreamwidth users.

Add a link to view the message to the "Message sent" page

Area:
private messages

Summary:
Suggest adding a link to the "Your message has been sent successfully" page, so the sender can easily view the sent message.

Description:
After sending a PM, you get the following page:

---

Compose Message
Your message has been sent successfully.

From here you can:

Send a new message
Return to Inbox
Return Home

---

To view the sent PM, you have to load the Inbox and then load Sent messages, then unfold the specific message. It'd be great to have a "View sent message" link, to skip those steps.

Basically, I'm talking about an equivalent to the "View the entry" link on the "Your entry has been posted" page.

Summary:
Because 'Sent' is visually separated from 'All', I always forget that when I'm in the All folder clicking on 'Delete All' will also delete messages in Sent unless I flagged them. I would like a way to make it clearer that 'All' really is all, including 'Sent', especially since sent messages aren't displayed there so I find it very easy to forget about them.

Description:
Making the indents bigger might work or removing the '---'separation and making it smaller or different.

Edit: other ideas: moving Sent above Flagged and/or above Unread; setting Sent apart; adding a count to Sent (I think this would help a lot).

Is it possible to have an option to be notified whenever someone in our Circle posts an entry?

It's easier for me to do everything in one spot than to have entries on the reading page and comment notifications in my inbox. It's also easier to delete a notification when something is read than to try to remember where I'm at on the reading page if I forget to use a separate tab to comment. But there are only so many subscriptions allowed, and I have to make sure I remember to select tracking when I add someone. Is it possible to make it so that one check box in the notification settings just follows everyone I want to read?

"Delete all" should not be option in inbox subfolders

It's not clear to me whether the "... All" buttons in Inbox subfolders such as "unread" apply only to the messages in that folder, or to all messages, and I'm not about to test it.

Description:
When I go to my inbox and click on any of the subfolders, such as "New People" or "Unread" (see req. #12097), I still have the "mark all read" and "delete all" buttons at the top and bottom of the list.

Do these really affect *all messages*, or just the ones in the current subfolder? If the latter, I urge you to relabel them, e.g. "Delete all these" and "Mark all these read", to make it clear that they do not apply to ALL the messages.

Provide IMAP (or POP) access to the DW Inbox.

Area:

Summary:
I find the DW inbox cumbersome to use when it gets overfull. I'd much rather manage it like any other mailbox, in a mail application.

Description:
I've never liked the message feature of LJ/DW. I've always felt it was a weak email function bolted onto the featureset as an afterthought, serving a function that would be better served by actual email.

With that in mind I think it would be nice to be able to manage it like email, in a real email application. To do that, I'd need IMAP (or at least POP) access to my DW message inbox. This would allow me to filter out the messages I don't need to see (such as crossposting success notifications, which I cannot elect to not receive, or messages I have to get in my DW inbox in order to be allowed to get them emailed, such as comment notifications)

Title:
Edited comment text

Area:
Inbox

Summary:
Thanks to the new code push, the bug here [http://bugs.dwscoalition.org/show_bug.cgi?id=3479] means that edited comments aren't repeated in the DW Inbox, but the message is unhelpful in telling you what the comment actually says.

Description:
The text says "This comment was edited", but unless you've seen edited comments before (when they didn't say that, and instead just gave the whole comment) you might not know that the notification before the edit is exactly the same as the one after the edit. The text given in the "edited comment" notification is confusing, because then you're told that the comment was edited but without the comment itself (which is in your inbox, but it's easy to assume that the notification sent before the edit is static).

I suggest that the text be changed to something like "This comment was edited. Please see the original notification for the updated text" so it's clear that there is, in fact, a notification of the new contents of the comment.

Title:
edited comment notifications in the DW inbox

Area:
comments

Summary:
When a comment is edited the original notification in the inbox changes and also shows the edited version, but you still get a new notification with the edited comment. So basically you get duplicates with no value. I think that should be changed, so that only one notification with the edited comment is there.

Description:
With the email version of the notifications it makes sense that you get two, because one shows the old comment, the second the edited one, so you can see the edit. But in the DW inbox the notification reflects the current state of the comment (or entry), so the first notification itself is edited and changed to say "edited comment by" exactly the same as the second one.

So if the first is already updated the second is superfluous clutter. I don't think there would be any drawbacks to not having two of the same.

If you happen to delete a message you didn't want to delete there is no way to get it back that I know of. It would be nice if the inbox had an undo button, or if there was a trash folder that maybe kept deleted messages for a little while. (Maybe for a log-in session?)

Description:
On my laptop screen size in the inbox the "delete selected" button is not right of the "mark unread" but is fluidly put directly below the "mark read" button. Yesterday I selected a message and thanks to some sort of trackpad accident I clicked the "delete" rather than the "mark read" button above the delete (my trackpad is not as precise or responsive as I'd like sometimes, also tapping it functions as clicking, so accidents happen). There was no way to undo the accidental delete, or to recover the message from a trash folder or the like. It would be nice if this was possible.

Title:
Expanding messages in Inbox broken in several ways

Area:
Inbox

Summary:
To view messages that have already been read in your Inbox, it's necessary to click on a small (11x11 pixel) triangle. There are several issues with the implementation of this.

Description:
In Dreamwidth's inbox system, posts which have already been read are hidden from view and must be manually expanded. This makes perfect sense; there's no reason to see stuff that you haven't read already.

However, the way that expanding these messages is implemented is problematic in several ways.

First of all, the size of the target is ridiculously small: 11x11 pixels. And as far as I can tell, the little arrow is the only way to expand these messages; clicking on the message itself checks the checkbox for that message rather than expanding it. It seems to me that there should be a much larger target for viewing the message rather than checking it, or some other behavior to view the message (double- rather than single-click, for instance).

Second, because this JavaScript is implemented solely using the 'click' event, it is keyboard-inaccessible. There should be a listener for 'keyDown' as well.

Third, the behavior breaks completely if JavaScript is turned off. The non-JavaScript link for the 'expand' button goes back to the main Inbox page, even if you're on a subpage. And even if the Inbox page is selected, the link doesn't actually do anything to collapse/expand the comment! This, at the very least, *definitely* needs to be fixed-- it should be possible to view messages without JavaScript turned on. (As a side effect, it would also fix keyboard accessibility until a keyDown listener was added.)

The only downside I can see is if people abuse it to spam other users; but you can already ban people from PMing you, so I don't see that as being a big problem.

Area:
Format of the Inbox

Summary:
Put in expandable cut tags automatically for long posts that show up in the inbox, like the News.

Description:
I tend to read the DW_News in my inbox (which I maintain much better than I maintain my LJ one...), but I like to leave the notification there until the next News post comes along, or as a reminder to think about something, make a suggestion, give feedback, etc.

DW_News posts can be very long. I wouldn't want them to be terser! But does make a lot of scrolling up and down if I want to see if I replied to a comment someone made or not. (I delete after replying.)

But this News post included the joy of expandable cut-tags, and I thought, "You know, it'd be really cool if long posts in my inbox could just have those cut tags..." Because then I could click on 'em and read, or click to close them and see if there are notifications I should be deleting.

And then the News post had this handy link to "make a suggestion"...
