in reply to Removing reply notifications

Your wish is my command, good monk Jenda.   Well, not really, but it sounds good.   The downright neat-o swell keen handy-dandy nifty wondamous Message Inbox should address your concern quite handily, eh?

    I'll reply to everyone in this one node.

    1. You are right diotalevi, Robartes and adrianh, whether this would help depends on the ussage pattern. I would like it since if I do want to reply I do that immediately. So I don't need to keep those around. I have no idea how many people would like this, but for me it would mean one page reload less ... the way it is now I 1) click on the link to get to the node 2) read the response, 3) reply if I feel like it 4) check the checkbox and click Talk. Which forces the webserver to respond to one more request.

    2. Yes, Robates, that's about what I would expect the implementation to look like. I don't think this would put any big additional load to the server. The would just check whether there is such a parameter in the query. And only if it does would it consult the user's preferences and if the user wants that delete or archive the message. So the only thing addigional thing executed in the normal case would be an if ($cgi->param("from_msg_id")).

    3. Yes the Message Inbox is cool but ... if I only get two messages a day and only want to peruse the link once and then get rid of the message, it's a bit of an overkill :-)
