Imrove the Messenger
Messaging is a great idea, but to use it to facilitate connections and interaction, a few improvements would be great:
- Messaging is one-to-one, so you can only have one recipient for a message. - If we could have more then one, it would be a lot easier to introduce users to each other, or start small group conversations. Instead of setting up a full category.
- Messages don't have @mention support. - same as above. If someone did something, it would be great to have a chance to 'flag' them in a message. Or use the sign to communicate to a single member what has been discussed by more people
- You can go to the full Messaging center to write a longer message. Click the Messaging icon at the top of the screen and click "View all Messages". Or from the chat popup, click the cog icon and select "See full conversation." - better but not really scalable for larger texts. May be also some basic editing tools like Bulletpoints or Fontsizes would be great. or even a chance to add 'code'
