As long as there's something notifying you to click on that link to bring you to your CP, where the actual notifications are, I think that would do. Did you have something else in mind regarding that?
The other forums that are both vBulletin forums that I frequent have something where it's not a pop up, but when it shows that you have a notification, you click on it, and it has a drop down menu that has a list of things "pending friend requests" / "new profile visitor messages" / etc. Than whatever the notification is referring to, it highlights that specific notification, and when you click on it, it brings you to whatever it is notifying. It keeps all the notifications in one place in case you get 2 or 3. I would get a picture of it, but I currently dont have any notifications on either forum, but when I do, I can get a screen cap of it so that this makes more sense.

Default The MusicBanter Ark

I'm not sure about the plausability/legality of this idea, but here goes.



The Music Banter Ark

Members could upload all of their music collections to a set of servers. All members would have access to everyone's music. With all relavent content at hand, music discussions would be much more efficient. The communal sharing of files would help everyone assimilate with one another. Every members' musical collection could be displayed on their profile page. If a member wanted to listen to a new artist, they would have a generous index of musicians to choose from, as well as reviews and commentary on each artist. Members could download and uploaod content at will. The possibilities are endless. I realize that this would require copious amonts of time and effort, but the end result would be stupendous. Every members' taste of music would be accounted for. MusicBanter could be a vault of music from each constituent of the site.

Oh! Reminds me.
50 pm's, what's up with that? Why only 50? It's plain text.
Can't this just be like... 1000 or so?

You mean like this?:



If that's what you mean, I'd be well in favour of that, it's simple, useful, and doesn't mean that you get annoying pop ups all the time :P

Yeah, that's the area I was talking about.

Another suggestion: When you copy and paste text from a post it also includes the words "Read more:" followed by the complete url of the post you copied from. This is annoying as hell and it didn't used be this way. It would be great if they could switch it back so we no longer get all this pointless crap when we copy and paste.

Yeah, that bothers me to no end. I hate constantly having to delete it from the post.

I don't see any use in it either. I've never thought 'oh it's convenient this time'.

Yeah, that's what I was referring to. It is very easy to use and keeps all notifications organized.
