I’m just trying to brainstorm a little… What if this forum had private messaging? I know it’s gotta be a package option. I was replying too many times on a thread to one person so the system prompted me to send a private message. So, I know it exists, but maybe Blake didn’t enable it?
By having private messaging, we would be able to privately comment on things about a particular topic that may not be meeting “reply criteria” so as to protect the integrity of the forum and site as a valuable place for information and neat conversation that is easy to peruse.
Also, what if one of us has a specific question for one member but a separate thread creation is inappropriate for that?
I’m sure we could disable it in our profile settings if some of us were uninterested in participating, right?
What do you guys think? Is this a possibility? Is it stupid? Can we be trusted? Does it prevent natural discussion or does it enhance it?
