The new In Game Messages / "News" gets very busy with messages from individual players all rolled up into the same place as system mails, association and city forums. It's difficult to manage messages and find something like the City Forum in all the clutter.
At present, I'm having to look through 2-3 pages of messages to find what used to be the City / Association Forum, we're only in era 2 and I honestly shudder to think what it's going to be like come the End Game.
Some suggestions to improve the big humongous glob of messages that came to the classic servers with the recent update:
- Could the "forum" type messages be in bold? That would help make them stand out from the crowd!
- Different icons and colours for the different message sources would also help
=> Folders for City, Association, People to group the different message sources?
- This one is more of a suggestion, but would greatly help me manage the day to day mails. Would it possible to have a toggle on the unread messages marker, so that if i get a mail that I'm not ready to reply to just now that I can reset it back to "unread" to remind me to follow up on it later. (it's something I do with my real life emails and is a great way to remember to follow up on things)
Thoughts, suggestions, comments welcome - this is how we communicate in game and it's important that it works WELL for all of us!
