QuoteI think that the default layout ... for the private messaging system in 2.1+ should be "as a conversation". It keeps the messages MUCH more organized and easier to keep track of.

Quote from: emanuele on March 25, 2013, 12:50:32 PMI was preparing a question, but you already answered, so I'll just post a comment.I find difficult to follow any kind of PM discussion that doesn't use conversation mode: all the PM staked in a line with no connection whatsoever, if I receive a PM related to something "we" were discussing months ago I would have to dig into the inbox looking for the previous PM and my PMs are instead in the outbox, so I have no way to follow the flow of the full discussion, but I have to guess what I answered unless the one I was discussing with quoted my entire PM or at least a good portion of it, etc.I find conversation mode the most effective and any other way rather confusing...ETA: TBH, change the default way was one of he things I was considering for 2.1 (including save own PMs by default).
