Since I'm still relatively new to ValME, a suggestion would be to make more of a distinction between private messages in the inbox and what is actually posted/visible on the actual original post. This could be a change of font, font color, or even a different viewer layout. Last night, I wasn't sure if I had received a private message or if it was a post. So that's why I erred on the side of caution and replied as a private message, when it should have actually been a reply to a posted comment.

Your wish is my command...

  • Added [COMMENT POSTED] in the subject of a PM to indicate the message is a reply to a comment. (If your Settings indicate you want to receive message notifications via email, it will appear in your email subject as well.)
  • Added a Reply to Comment link/button after the comment within your inbox.

Please let me know if that helps.

Good suggestion. I'll add that to the upgrade queue and let everyone know when it's available.

Thank you! This is a great improvement and gives new users such as myself a clearer picture of where our words/replies are being sent to. On the other side of the (bit)coin, did you add [PRIVATE MESSAGE] in the subject of a PM to indicate that it is, indeed, a PM?

The Reply to Comment link/button works perfectly from my inbox. Again, thanks!

I didn't as it seemed a bit overkill and redundant because everything that doesn't start with [COMMENT POSTED] would be a PM (or some other private notice).
