Yesterday we announced our new Private Messaging system. Today, I want to update you with a few more details.
We're currently scheduled to release the new PM system at around 6:30pm Aug 6, 2012, Pacific Time, but please understand that releases can be delayed for many reasons. We won't release the feature unless we think it's ready :). That said, we'll work hard to try to get this new feature to you on time!
PM conversations started in the last 30 days will be turned into threads, but older ones, unfortunately, won't. And, of course, all new PM conversations that you start will be threaded.
When the feature is released, you'll only see conversations that were started in the last 30 days. Don't worry -- all other messages will show up soon after (you should see all your message again within about 3 days), but they won't be threaded. With time, you'll see older and older messages show up in your message folder again. This is being done in order to reduce the risk of our system losing any of your PMs.
We hope you love the new feature, but if you have any suggestions or questions, please don't hesitate to contact us!
