I absolutely hate when you go through your Mass messages, and you see that you got a bunch of blue-bubbled PM's.

I've missed so many Private Messages because someone massed before they sent me, normally i do full mass cleanups every few minutes not get them as they go, so i miss a lot.

Something that could be fixed for efficiency, if someone PM's you, and then PM's you again a few minutes later if you haven't read it yet it stacks.

A fix for V5:

Perhaps, we can just make a blue bubble for a players mass messages, and say they PM you also, make a seperate golden bubble with there name.

And an option for maximum of 3 PM's from a player before they stop stacking? would prevent spam and still be put into use.

Or just have priorities for the icons. If the player has sent a personal message, the icon remains yellow regardless of whether they send a mass later or not.

This. Should be easy to do with the new playerlist.

I'd also suggest private messages always remaining at the top of the list until read.

Hum it already does that for me :confused:.

I'm referring to the above issue of mass pm's overwriting. Thus if personal pm's take icon priority, it should also bump it back up the list.

In the scripted playerlist (the one that we will be using for v6), this should already be fixed since the priority order should work like this: PM from admin, normal PM, guild PM, mass PM.

i wish servers would make a GUI that doesn't display the PM/mass on the minimap, since whenever i alt + 3 the minimap away it means the PM icons won't appear directly on screen anymore
