[GSoC] Chat-like PMs interface :: discussion before coding starts

Hi guys, as Derky proposed to me earlier, with this GSoC project, we are really going to change PM interface drastically. So he suggested we at least attempt a discussion before we start coding to decide on some functional removals/additions. My student created this nice short document that describe...

Okay, what is the advantage of Discord over Slack?

Re: [GSoc 2018] Query about idea - User Mentions or Social Sharing

Hi shreyansh007,
it's really up to you. Pick the one you find more interesting. Also you can send two proposals, so maybe you can choose both.

Re: Realtime floating (ajax) notifications

Not in the core. I am thinking of it as an extension, but I am currently occupied with much more important things.

Also I am not sure whether PMs require fulltext search you are proposing. Even Messenger has simple string search mechanism implemented only.

Re: [GSOC 2018] Revamp PM system to chat based

Starring messages as important/favourites which can be later viewed (similar to WhatsApp) Yup, why not. Even "mark as unread" is a great feature I use all the time when I want to deal with the message later. Other than that, I think data storage probably doesn't need to be changed at all. Since mai...

Re: [GSOC 2018] Revamp PM system to chat based

Yes but sometimes existing group members might not want the newly added user to read older messages. So true. I just don't understand why you can send a message to a group when, in fact, you send it to the concrete people behind the group. I know it's a shortcut for message sender, but still, I wou...

Re: [GSOC 2018] Revamp PM system to chat based

One drawback I see is for someone looking for previous conversations of a specific topic may find it difficult but then again this is up to the user to choose. This can be solved by proper search mechanism, but as you already pointed out, this might be out of the scope for one project. I'm looking ...

Re: [GSOC 2018] Revamp PM system to chat based

Keeping that in mind, one way to implement this could be having a log of recently contacted profiles (with topic) on the left and the ASC order of messages in the middle as before. https://designshack.net/wp-content/uploads/whatsapp.jpg Something similar, but can have multiple conversations with th...

Re: [GSOC 2018] Revamp PM system to chat based

akbarhashmi, thanks for your interest! Requirements are vague on purpose to let you decide on many aspects. Original idea does not count with ajax/push updates. The main idea is to redesign PMs to show as one stream of messages instead of many "topics". So yes, subjects would be removed and all "top...
