Add reactions to PMs

I don't use PMs very often, but I just noticed that you can't react to messages in PMs.

I feel like this would be handy as if you don't have anything to say that constitutes a full response but would like to react to it (such as we do with megathreads) in megaPMs.

I do know this is a feature on XenForo (what the TPU forums, among others, use), but I don't know if it's possible with PMs or not with Invision.

My though is that reactions to PMs wouldn't show up as a regular notif, instead a PM notif, but wouldn't have the popup that goes over your screen whether you have it on or off.

 

I don't know if this is feasible or not (as I know the reaction system is a bit weird), just thought I'd share an idea.

This is what mortis said when I requested this in this thread

Reactions in messaging apps work because the communication is synchronous, so you react just after they posted it and they see your reaction, and it doesn't (at least in the platforms that I've used reactions on) send you a notification. It makes a bit less sense to me in a forum PM, where it's asynchronous. Once it's sending you a notification, why not just quote them in the PM and express your feelings that way - PMs tend to have very few participants so it's not like a topic where you need to avoid spamming with "thanks" and "I agree" type messages.

 

I am far from an expert in this so please correct me if I’m wrong.

Quote or tag me so I can see your response

there are times i wish it's a thing

 

for rep farming concerns, just dont count it towards that

not necessarily have to use the same system, can just implement something simple, if you cant exclude the current one from the counter

 

in the end, it's not that crucial imo

My PCs: Desky | Beddie | Miney | Benchie

Things I need help with: (nothing at the moment)

Spoiler

none atm

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

Spoiler

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer: shit tier quality products, shit tier customer service thus far, they "tried" to solve my issue but they arent really doing anything but delaying and delaying. (on-going case since July)

Gigabyte: horrible customer service (gigabyte had literally 0 customer service, asked me to go to retailer with NO WAY to email them about a question) but at least they fixed my shit in ONE MONTH (would probably take me 1 hour to fix if they let me email them)

XiaoMi Phones: built like a tank but the software is buggy as all hell

Seagate HDD: had too many dead seagate drives

Kingston SSD: 300V controller swap thingy

Razer (except their mouse)

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

Invision doesn't work like that though.

IIRC, mortis said more granular control may be coming in the next major update.... but it's far from developing a workaround for such a pointless thing.

Nice try.

No private rep farming for you.

Agreed, I don't how hard it is to type, "Thank you!" or "Sounds good" or "Keep me updated"...You don't need to be so damn simplistic that your response requires just a click, its a personal message!!!
