Delete/report/mark as unread - PM Features we'd love to see!

By: claw | 13-03-2017 02:08

I think we should be able to delete a PM without opening it. I have received a PM which by looking at the preview is blatant spam. I do not wish to open it and I wish to delete it. Without opening it however I can neither delete nor block it.


My idea has two features.

1. Allow the deletion of PMs from the main PM menu

2. Allow the reporting of PMs from the main PM menu

3. Allow PMs to be marked as unread.


On a technical level this would be easy to implement by utilizing the tick boxes and the three dot menu button and would help

1. In times when people get spam (delete.)

2. In times where bullying is clear (report with no need to open and read the full thing, the preview is enough.)

3. In times when we read a PM but don't have the time to reply there and then (mark as unread.)

Simple features to implement

Supported @claw

I have been repeatedly asking for improved functionality in the PM area since the new platform was released. All that is needed is that the existing functions (pre this god-forsaken new platform) are re-instated. My particular gripe is the loss of the bulk delete option. At present you have to open each message individually, click on delete and then confirm that you really did click on the delete button. Its an absolute pain.

Support this for sure and could we also share our views on this with my bank as they insist on me opening all messages too

I agree strongly, last year wen I was registered under a different username I was new to the forum n abit naïve and started speaking via pm to a fellow gg'er who got real nasty n put up a thread about me but had I known I wouldn't have opened the ongoing upsetting PM's

As this seems to be primarily related to the 'New Community Design' shouldn't it be posted in the feedback thread and not as a 'New Idea' in Labs?
