timestamps in PMs? (in General)


TheHatchetman August 21 2008 9:58 AM EDT

Just curious as to whether it would be easy enough (both on Jon's time for putting it in, and on the server load) to put timestamps in PMs sent/received to be reasonable enough to ask for. And in the event it is simple enough, is it desired enough to be worth the time that it would take?

Just figured it may help out many of the people who often go afk and get PMs while they're away, just not knowing when :P

In all honesty, not a bad idea.

But it's pretty simple.


If they're still on, it was a relatively little while ago.

If they're not, then it was a long time ago XD

chatmails have time stamps, couldn't pm's just also be delivered as chatmails thus giving them the time stamp?

ewwww, PMs delivered as Chatmail would fill my chatmail box - which I am constantly digging back through to see when/what was sent to me.


Perhaps you should ask SNK about his chat client? Last I checked he was using one that had timestamps on everything.

lol dude, wouldnt that make you less of a social pariah? its just what the conformists want you to do...

I like the idea though, hatch. but my PM box keeps disappearing every once in a while...
