Quick Message

The quick message add-on has just been installed on this site. Members can send a quick message to any other member if their privacy setting allows. Quick messages can be no longer than 255 characters.

Conversations is a great feature, but sometimes you may just want to fire off a quick message to another member. Quick messages that are read will be automatically deleted after 24 hours (set in options), while messages that are unread will be deleted in 72 hours (set in options). There are a few permissions that can be set: send message, receive message, reply to message, view read date, report message, and view own quick messages. Quick message replies are treated as a new quick message.

One possible use of this add-on:
This can be a great tool for moderators: let moderators send and receive quick messages, and set group x to only receive quick messages. A quick way to give an advanced warning without being dragged into a time consuming conversation​
I'm waiting to officially release this add-on after I do a re-write (focusing mostly on permission checks), and consider adding in an editor to allow basic bbcode support.

Here are a few screen shots:

Nice add-on. It's a bit like alerting a specific user from Admin CP.

Thanks, :) by the way, the re-written version is now installed on this site. The screen shots in the first post that do not show the quick message links are no longer relevant.
