So im just curious if communication amongst each other in the site would be better with personal IM boxes along with the major IM's because honestly,
sounds like a great idea IMO.
1.) It'd be a lot better when trying to get @ someone rather then constantly writing on there page awaiting there response & consistently moving back and forth between two pages.
2.) Players wouldn't have to always rely on social/freeplay or w/e to message in real time with others.
3.) Players also wouldn't have to PM in these major Chat rooms when they'd only want to message each other one on one.
4.) It'd give befriending people that much more of a purpose other then saying "these are the people i like".
5.) This new feature being implemented would make free play and or social that much more of a getting to know/play new people place.
6.) Instead of killing off social or free play for good this idea of personal IM's puts stronger emphasis on the purpose of these chat rooms with the 5th Pro+ point in mind.
7.) It's overall adding that much more convenience to the site.
1.) site maintenance would be needed a bit more often to maintain the site so that this feature is properly implemented.
2.) It may be too late to even fabricate the idea into the site since the site is old.
3.) Some people are Sat. with how it is as is.
From these points alone I thought of, the Pro's Out weigh the Con's. and towards the 1st con id really say more maintenance to the site isn't really much of a problem if the people in charge of the site are REALLY that adamant about it that much to keep it looking good and functioning properly and superbly. other then that there are prob more cons that i haven't pointed out or probably those dealing with an act of apathy which isn't really much grounds for a valid argument anyways.(same goes with pro's)
Site owners it'd be wise to think about this idea, god forbid a rival smash site take this idea and run with it and become successful while you guys had the chance and find your selves feeling like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eVIj9_xvZIM
This is just merely a suggestion I'd hope to see enforced when i make my return to this smash site in the summer after basic training.
