Why would anyone want to mass delete?
Because PM's are not just PM's, they're also any private conversations you have while in chat. Many people like to delete those conversations after they're done. With the old page, if you had a PM conversation in chat with someone, and exchanged 50 messages back and forth, you had to delete each one of them individually.
Cstar thank you for getting back to me on this. I know that Kid has requested gunter to ask tech to increase the number of "x" assigned. Actually every message in any conversation should have an "x" on it. To limit it to 10 per conversation shows limited thinking when making the change. Thank You.
then why wasn't it looked into "separating" chat PM's out of the mix, into it's own little box
Because chat PM's & PM's are all run by the same mechanism. It's one single messaging system.
Plus it wasn’t only chatters that have been requesting this.
The only thing have seen over the years was asking for the ability to delete more than a single PM at the same time . . . that could have easily been done, instead of what "was" done . . .
From what have seen, that is the same sentiment pretty much across the board - great that more than one PM can now be deleted but not happy with the rest . . .
that could have easily been done,
I have no idea how to write code. From what I understood in the early stages it could not be done from the older inbox.
But whatever it's change you you do not have to like it.
That it couldn't be done from the older inbox is baloney . . .
To delete a whole convo could either be done by adding a simple button at the end of the convo to delete . . . or . . . have added a pop up window to delete the whole convo . . . essentially the same that is done with convo threads in a forum . . . which would have left intact individual PM delete capability . . .
As to chat convo's - that could easily have been done by changing the direction of where they are saved . . . in other words - set up a location, not unlike presently exists for normal PM's . . . and direct chat convo's to be saved there . . . this latter example should have been done long ago, before zeta ever came about or was thought of . . .
Frankly, what it looks like is - given Delphi's essential non support of the classic format . . . there was no consideration given to the above . . . thus the outcome of the current PM window reflecting more or less zeta . . .
To me and others - this is nothing more than yet another example that folks are sooner or later being forced into the zeta format . . .
