[Implemented] Addition to PM Notification

Just a minor suggestion, but can we get a more eye catching notification for private messages? I'm aware we get a sort of (number) next to PM as well as a line of text up there letting us know we've at least one private message unread and even an e-mail about it, but it's awfully easy to miss at times.

Can we get something like this, too?

Just something that stands out a little, is all.

Re: [Implemented] Addition to PM Notification

That would be theme specific, since some themes (like radium) don't have separate boxes for the links.

Would a blinking icon of some sort next to the PM text be sufficient? That would easily work cross themes.

The icon alone, not necessarily blinking, would be more than enough, I think. But yeah, that sounds great.

Re: [Implemented] Addition to PM Notification

I was going to tell you to use the default exclamation mark smiley all these forums have, but apparently we don't have that so you should just use this instead iiam

Re: [Implemented] Addition to PM Notification

So, any real suggestions as to what kind of an icon should be used or do I just wing it with my mad pixel art skills?

The MGS ! mark with proper resizing would be great but I can't find a transparent version anywhere

Re: [Implemented] Addition to PM Notification

I decided to go with 10px height as it's what the height of the PM font is in the theme I use (technically it's 8px but with the underlined text it's 10), let me know or make your own if it's not good

edit: apparently alpha is a colour in photoshop, who knew

Re: [Implemented] Addition to PM Notification

Well, colours are just "channels" like the alpha channel is.

Re: [Implemented] Addition to PM Notification

realised, it looks like this, which honestly isn't too bad to me (but I'd still disable it given the opportunity :^))

Re: [Implemented] Addition to PM Notification

i've tested it to look fine in the default theme too, not that any themes other than cobalt are relevant
