I was just reading the Community Guidelines for these forums (again) because I'm at work, and I'm bored -_- and I realized that there's a part in the guidelines that says members may contribute "Ideas for new features." So then I ran searches for "messaging, private messaging, messages, message, and mailboxes" and saw that there are no threads specifically requesting this feature. So, I thought I'd start one!
I think KDP and Amazon.com as a whole should provide a messaging center/mailbox for all of its customers/users. I really think it could only benefit the websites.
would love to see a "+1" or "Like" or "thumbs up/down" option on the actual post, and not somewhere at the end of the thread.
Nice to actually show support for what someone has said - especially when there's really nothing to add.
Yes. Yes, yes, and yes. In fact, ever since recently joining the KDP Community, I've wondered why they don't have a private messaging feature, or a "sticky" feature.
As stated, the sticky feature would probably be even more helpful. As a newbie, I find myself with a ton of questions I'm sure have been answered previously, but (like most people) I'm too impatient/lazy to go sifting through archives. A sticky note system would be a great way to cut down on the repetition of many newbie questions.
Yes I was on another forum that is set up just like this one except you could private message a person just by clicking on their name, and there was a place to do it. It would be nice to be able to do it.
Drats, it didn't notify me. Maybe I should wait a little while longer. I'll report back. If it doesn't notify us of a new post without us having to check a box, then I might not remember to look there for weeks...months even.
So you posted an hour ago, and that should be plenty of time. However, now that I have the little box check, it should email me if anyone else posts there. On the other hand, who knows that is there? It was months before I discovered it. Thanks for testing it, 75.
