Different message countdown

I can't quite remember if the message system had this in 1.4 or not, so I'm just gonna swing at it.

I think it would be better to (when a message pops up) have the number on the envelope up at the top not go down until you've read the message! so, like, you have to click off on a check box or something saying that you've read it. This may not be helpful for everyone, but for me especially it'd be good because sometimes I don't have time to read all the messages at once, but if the alert sign goes away, it makes me think that they've all been read. It kind of gets annoying sometimes, like when someone is waiting for a response, and you forgot, and nothing is keeping the little orange circle glowing at the top of your screen, so you don't remember. Really annoying sometimes. Anyway, just a thought. Thanks guys!

Different message countdown

I have ~1800 unread messages (not joking). Do you think I have the patience to check off every message?

Sorry, but it's a lot easier to go to your messages page and open a message link in another tab (then closing it once you're done).

You're in the vast minority.

How will that help you? Are you really going to open 1800 new tabs?

I agree with the suggestion. There should also be a box which “marks all as read”.
